Select Team Tryouts & Team Formation

Welcome to the Kearney Soccer Club 2018 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 2018-2019 soccer year occurs with the annual tryout/team formation process beginning in the month of June – the official start is August 1, 2018.

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!

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.  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.

U13 and U14 Boys & Girls

Under 13 & 14 programs will be single team age teams.  The maximum number of players that will be placed on the active roster is 18.  Those 18 players will be chosen by the Director of Coaching in consultation with the Head Coach.  If there are more than 18 players wishing to play for this team, those additional players will be offer spots as practice players.  Practice players may be added to the active roster in the absence of an active player - as needed and determined by the Head Coach - in consultation with the Director of Coaching.
