Spring 2023 Tryouts: 2013-2016 Teams
Registration Deadline: Sunday, January 29th
Beginning with the Spring 2023 season, we will be holding official tryouts for all Youth Development Program (YDP) 2013-2016 teams. Tryouts for the Spring season will be held 1/30 & 2/1 (6-7pm) at Buckman Field (see map). There is a $25 non-refundable fee to attend.
During our player assessments, our coaches will get to know your player's focus, listening skills and ability to participate as part of a team through fun challenges and games. This is a great opportunity to get your child active and engaged with other player's their age! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
In our Youth Development Program (YDP), players born 2013-2016 will be challenged through fun games and team interaction. This program prepares players for competitive soccer and improves recreational players' skills. The engaging, age-appropriate program focuses on the early development of individual players with an emphasis on:
Teamwork and Competition, introduced at a developmentally appropriate level
Technical Skills & Body Mechanics
Tactical Knowledge & Decision Making
Individual Growth & Communication
Players will train with their age-group (based on their birth-year) on Mondays & Wednesdays from 6-7pm at Buckman Field from February 6 to May 3. Coaches will form teams based on skill level and YDP players will participate in OYSA’s 4v4 or 7v7 (based on age-group) Development League at Delta Park on Sundays.
Potential Game Dates include 2/26, 3/5, 3/12, 3/19, 4/16, 4/23, 4/30 & 5/7.
If the coach would like to offer your player a spot, you will be sent the official team invite via email and will be able to register for the season. The cost of the Spring YDP Season is $350.
Players are not committed on a roster until they accept their spot via the offer email and make their first payment. Players are not permitted to attend training the following week until they have officially accepted their spot. Payment plans and scholarships are available. Applications must be submitted within 3 days of being offered a spot on a team. Listed fees do not include uniforms fees (see below). We DO NOT OFFER CLUB REFUNDS after 30 days of team acceptance, as our players have begun training and our teams have already been formed and finalized. Please contact email@example.com if you have any questions concerning these policies.
What does the year look like for players in this age-group?
