Tryout Process

U7-U12 Academy (2013-2008)

Tryout: Held over two nights with each session being roughly an hour and a half in length

Evaluators: TSC Full-Time Directors of Coaching and current Academy coaching staff

At tryouts, your child will be evaluated by the coaching staff in various group activities. The staff will assess current skill level, desire and potential ability. This criterion is evaluated along with consideration as to how and where that individual’s ability will best fit in order to foster continued learning, improvement and further a competitively challenged environment. Once this is determined over the course of the tryouts, your child may be offered a position with the Academy. 
The tryout process is conducted in a relaxed environment whereby players are encouraged to play the game they love and have fun. This is done to ensure players are not intimidated or “fear” not making a team.

Player Selection: The number of players selected will be determined by the number of players in attendance and the quality of the player pool. 


U13-U19 Competitive, Nike and ECNL

Tryout: Held over three nights with each session being one and a half hours in length

Evaluators: TSC Full-Time Directors of Coaching and staff coaches

How Players Are Placed: Each player that attends the tryout session is evaluated in four different areas: technical, tactical, physical and psychological. For those returning players, evaluations over the course of season/year is combined with their performance during the tryout session to form the fairest assessment possible. New players are encouraged to relax and enjoy playing, and will receive a fair, objective placement.

What if a player attends the TSC Williamson location tryouts but isn't placed on a TSC ECNL or TSC Nike team?
Players in this situation will still be placed on a TSC Competitive team at the location they selected in the Tryout Registration process!
