20 TRYOUTS Why have a tryout? What to expect at tryouts What to expect after tryouts

21 Why do we have tryouts? Tryouts are an effort to simplify the team creation process. All players will: Have equal opportunity Be evaluated by unbiased staff Tryouts formed as an alternative to parent groups attempting to form competitive teams

22 What happens at tryouts? You will have already registered online* Show up 45 minutes before start time Check in with club you registered for Get t-shirt and number sticker Players may go warm up before session starts *On-site registration costs $35 extra, and may cause delays in being contacted afterward

23 What do tryouts consist of? Players will be led through a warm-up by a coach 1v1 and 2v2 games Day 1: 4v4/5v5 games Day 2: 7v7/8v8 games

24 Who is evaluating? Evaluators include staff from 56ers and Alliance clubs, and other coaches and evaluators Evaluators have a list of players and evaluate them throughout sessions Evaluations for players not selected for 56ers are considered by Regent for Select teams

25 How are kids evaluated? 4 Pillars of Soccer Development Technical – skill and ability to control the ball Tactical – decision making in the game Physical – speed, size, strength Psychological – attitude, listening, sportsmanship

26 How can I help my kid at tryouts? Be prepared as possible to limit stress Help them relax, stay positive and do their best There are no “secrets to success” or shortcuts We don’t keep track of scores at the tryouts

27 How can I help my kid BEFORE tryouts? Playing and practicing a lot is the best way to improve skills and confidence level Players should be discouraged from “booting” or clearing the ball as much as possible Alliance Development Program (ADP): Trainings on Sundays with 56er, and top Alliance coaches
