What Coaches look for at Tryouts:
Players are evaluated on the four pillars of soccer; technical ability, tactical ability, physical ability, and psychological attributes of the game. Some of the key things looked at are:
  • Attitude - This is a big one, we want to know how easy your player is to coach. Are they willing to learn and try new things?
  • First Touch – Is the player’s first touch good as it affects his/her time and space on the field.
  • Ball Manipulation - How well can the player dictate what the ball does at their feet? Can they execute soccer skills to beat an opponent or do they rely on speed?
  • Dribbling - How close is the ball to the player as they dribble? Are they keeping their head up or constantly looking at the ground?
  • Awareness - Do players know what's around them? Are they looking to open space or do they chase the ball?
  • Communication - Soccer players MUST talk on the field.
  • Defending - Every player must be able to and willing to defend (including forwards). Are players working to win the ball back -or do they check out of the game until they have the ball?

This is by no means anywhere near a complete list, but should give you an idea of what coaches are evaluating.

2017-18 Coaching Slate: will be posted by 1 APR 2017 on the website.
