TRYOUT INFORMATION

Parent or Guardian Must Stay
A parent or guardian must stay at the tryout with their child in case there is an injury or severe weather.

No Travel Club Apparel
Do not have your child wear any travel club uniform apparel from any club including travel uniform jersey/shorts/socks, practice jersey’s, warm-ups, etc.

Both Sessions
Make sure your child comes to both tryout sessions so that a thorough observation of your child's skill set can be assessed.

Need Coaches
For newly formed teams, we need parents to volunteer to be the Head Coach if your child is selected for the team. All of our teams have parents as Head Coaches and we cannot form a team if parents do not volunteer. We are here to help and guide you during this rewarding coaching experience.

48 Hours to Accept Position On Travel Team
We expect to notify you of results via e-mail within one week of tryouts. If selected, you will have 48 hours to accept the offer to the team. If you do not accept by 48 hours, then we will offer your child's spot to another child.

Commitment
Our travel teams play competitive soccer games against other town travel teams in the Long Island Junior Soccer League. Travel soccer is a substantial commitment. The commitment is for the Fall 2018 (Sept. - November) and Spring 2019 (March - June) Seasons. Players must expect to train at least two times per week and play in a game on the weekends throughout the year if selected to a travel team. Travel teams also play in winter and summer tournaments at the discretion of his or her coach. If you are selected for a travel team, the expectation is that you are strive to make all practices and all games. If you cannot make this commitment please do not accept a position.

No Guarantee
There is no guarantee that your child will be accepted onto a travel team. Whether a travel team can be formed depends on a variety of factors including how many kids tryout for a particular team, the skill and maturity level of the kids, and whether sufficient Coaches can be found to coach the team. Tryouts will be run exclusively by New York City FC Trainers. We expect to notify you of results within one week of tryouts.

No Instructions or Involvement During the Tryout
Once you check in your child, and the tryout begins, you are not permitted in the tryout area nor to shout instructions during the tryout. Your son/daughter must play to the best of his or her ability without parental involvement. This rule is true for any coaches as well. Only the evaluators and those running the tryout session are permitted.

Equipment
Make sure your child has cleats, shin guards, a properly inflated #4 soccer ball (for U9 and U10) and plenty of water. (They should not need to run over to you for any of the above once try-outs begin)

Arrival Time
Do not arrive late. The first 15 minutes of the session will be for registration, numbering, providing jerseys, and to answer any questions anyone might have. The next 1 hour and 15 minutes is for the actual tryout which will be run by New York City FC.

TIPS TO SHARE WITH YOUR SON/DAUGHTER

Have fun!
If your child comes to tryout anxious and nervous, it will be reflected in his/her ability to do what they do best! Have them relaxed and enjoying the experience.

Pay Attention
Make sure players pay attention to instructions. It is just like any classroom — just more fun, and outside!

IMPORTANT
Making or not making a travel team this year has no bearing on your child’s future ability to play soccer. Maturity, skill level, knowledge, and awareness all come about at different ages for kids. We have an intramural program that is available for kids in grades 1 - 7 that your child can participate in if he or she is not selected for a travel team. We also offer soccer clinics and camps.

FPSC Intramural League

FPSC Intramural League Mission:
The FPSC’s top priority for our intramural program is for the kids to have fun…that is what FPSC Soccer is all about. We take pride in providing a fun activity for the community to take part in.
With that being said, more and more our intramural program is becoming a breeding ground for our travel program. Many more kids, at all ages, are taking the intramural competition more seriously, principally because there is a greater focus on making it to the travel level.

FPSC Intramural League

We are also very focused on teaching the skills and strategies necessary to excel in youth soccer. We provide a Junior Clinic for kids 3-5 years old, a Developmental Skills Clinic for Grades 1-7, and summer camps for all levels.
Matt Sotirhos is the director of the Intramural Program. This is Matts 2nd year running the entire intramural program and his 3rd year running the Junior Clinic.
“My personal experience running the program…it’s exhausting!! It really is a lot of work, especially in the offseason. Lots of time and energy go into it. However, it is extremely rewarding when you see the final product…the kids out on the pitch having fun! I also think that the program has improved tremendously over the past 3 years: enrollment is up, skill levels have improved, the program is much more organized, and parents are generally happier, especially at the younger levels.” - Matt
