What Ages Can Play Select

Boys and Girls with a birth year of 2009 or older. Children born in 2010 may be considered based on skill.

Tryouts

The tryout dates are determined by the end of completion of Washington Youth Soccer State Cups for each age group. Dates will vary and will be between the end of April and the middle of May. Tryouts will be scheduled locally and will typically be 2 dates for each age. Your child does not need to be at both tryouts but it is recommended.

Once tryouts are complete, the select committee/coaches will inform players of their status within 72 hours of the last tryout for that age.

Who are the coaches

Coaches are required to complete a Select Coaching Application and the Select Committee will review application and interview prospective coaches. Select Coaches are expected to have or plan to obtain appropriate coach licenses; prior experience with select, college and/or at the professional level is preferable.

Practices

Practices will start in June. There will be a minimum of 2 practices a week and practice will be at least 1 ½ hours long. The coach will determine the practice days/times. Practices will be local. No player will be able to start practicing with the coach and team until they are officially registered with the club.

Fall Season

The fall season games will start first weekend after Labor Day. There are 10-12 games in the season determined by the team age.

Games will be Sat or Sun depending on team age. Day of play and schedules are determined by the league (NPSL).

Spring Season

There is an optional 6 week NPSL spring season that begins in late February (U10-U14).

Indoor

Team may choose to play indoor session in the winter.

Tournaments

The team will go to at least 3 tournaments, typically in the summer. One of which will be the Sky River Soccer Tournament at the end of August. Going to 3 tournaments will give the team approximately 9 extra games to play. This helps the team compete come the regular season. Other teams that you will be competing against in the fall will have this extra experience.
