  • Players new to travel soccer must upload their birth certificate within the registration process, or hand in a copy at tryouts
  • All players should upload a head shot (player's picture) to their registration record. This facilitates the creation of the EPYSA player card. 


TRYOUT PROCESS

All age groups will have two tryout sessions at different dates and times. If you cannot make one of these tryouts, you need to email the travel director Harry Horozoglou to make other arrangements to get a separate assessment along with an explanation of why you cannot attend the scheduled tryouts.

Players MUST attend at least one tryout session to be eligible for travel team selections. Attending both tryouts will give you the best chance to be placed correctly. It is highly recommended to attend both tryouts.
  • Tryout sessions and evaluation procedure will be organized and run by the SFC coaching director.
  • Rankings and team placement are determined by the coaching director, travel director with input from independent evaluators, and if applicable the team's head coach.
  • Selection criteria will include small-sided game play on a 3, 4, or 5 field rotation system, (3v3, 4v4, or 5v5 grids). Additional skills evaluations will be assessed on the second tryout date. All player evaluations will be scored and tallied.
Once evaluations are completed, coaches will contact their players picks by either email or phone call 1 to 2 weeks after the final tryout date. Example; Sarting with team order, A team coach to the B team coach and then to the C team coach, All coaches are encouraged to contact their player picks by phone call. *Communication must begin with highest rated player selection then move down the ranking list. Confirmation of player acceptance MUST be promptly received. This allows adjustments in the event a player declines an offer based on the decision communicated.
