Select Team Tryouts & Team Formation

Welcome to the Kearney Soccer Club 2017 Tryouts & Team Formation!

Select Soccer is truly a sport that has year-round involvement, whether that is state league play in the fall and spring, indoor league/skills in the winter or tournament play in the summer.  Sometimes it is hard to know when one season starts and the other ends.  The start to the 2017-2018 soccer year occurs with the annual tryout/team formation process beginning in the month of June – the official start is August 1, 2017.

The Kearney Soccer Club is a primarily a single community soccer club - particularly at the younger ages (U11-U14).  Under normal circumstances we make every attempt to place interested players on one of our teams.  Each age group within our club differs in makeup - specifically in the number of players and teams involved.

Below is a brief description of our different age groups and the process that we use to form teams and place players in each particular age group. Select Program design and operation - including player placement - is conducted by the KSC Director of Coaching.

Please visit the information listed below, that should help fill in some of the blanks as well as helping you know what to do. If you do have any questions or need further information please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.

Thank you!

Mike Munch – KSC Director of Coaching

U11 and U12 Boys & Girls

At the Under 11 and Under 12 levels we will be utilizing an academy system for all players.  All players in each gender/age group will be place under the direction of a Head Coach and staff of assistants.  All players will practice together.  For league games and tournaments players will be placed on teams based on ability and availability.  Where we have sufficient numbers we will field two teams.  If our number is too great for one team yet not enough for two teams we will "rotate" our rosters in order to give all players a fair number of events in which to participate.  When there are numbers enough for two teams, player placement will be decided upon by the Director of Coaching with input from the Head Coach.

NO TRYOUT - INTERESTED PLAYERS MUST COMPLETE THE PLAYER INFORMATION FORM BY JUNE 18.


U13 Girls

Our Under 13 girls program will be a single team entity.  If more than 18 players are selected for the team a roster rotation will be used. A tryout will not be held unless a new player registers to attend. Roster additions and subtractions will be made by the Director of Coaching with input from the Head Coach.

TENTATIVE TRYOUT - IF NEW PLAYER-S REGISTER FOR THIS TEAM

INTERESTED NEW PLAYERS MUST COMPLETE THE PLAYER INFORMATION FORM BY JUNE 12, RETURNING PLAYERS BY JUNE 18.


U13 Boys

The total number of participants will determine the style of program for our Under 13 boys. If we have enough numbers we will continue to utilize a two team concept.  Under that circumstance the placement of players on teams will be made by the Director of Coaching with input from the Head Coach. Primary basis of those placements will be on fall-spring play, not a single tryout.  If the numbers do not support a two team program we will then move to a single team entity and rotate the roster for league and tournaments.

A tryout will not be held unless a new player registers to attend. Roster additions and subtractions will be made by the Director of Coaching with input from the Head Coach.
