Tryout Selection Process: All players must be evaluated before joining the program. This also applies to returning players wanting to continue in the program the following year.
Tryout Results: If your child is selected for a team, the team’s coach will contact you by email or phone with an offer. He/she will instruct you that you have 48 hours from that time to accept the position. All parents/players will be contacted approximately 48 hours after the last age group tryout session. For the 2020-21 season, because of the COVID restriction regarding the numbers of players we can evaluate at a time, some age groups may take longer than others, but our goal is to finalizethe rosters by Wednesday, June 17th and have all players notified by June 20th.
Amount of players per team: Roster Size: Whenever possible, coaches are encouraged to form rosters that will allow all players significant playing time over the course of a season. Coaches are encouraged to build rosters that allow players the opportunity to experience meaningful competition during each match. Coaches are encouraged to roster only those players who can maintain the competitive level of their particular team.
The following are the roster sizes for the different age groups in PSC travel soccer program.
