Select Team Tryouts & Team Formation 2019-2020

Welcome to the KSC 2019-2020 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 2019-2020 soccer year occurs with the annual tryout/team formation process beginning in the month of June – the official start is August 1, 2019.

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 & U12 Select Academy

At the Under 11 and Under 12 levels we accept all players who can meet our financial, time and commitment requirements.  We will be utilizing an academy system for all teams and players.  All players in each gender/age group will be placed 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 - based on ABILITY.  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 & U14 Select Teams

At the U13 & U14 levels there will be single roster teams in each age group.  The maximum number of players that can be placed on a team roster is 22, but rosters may feature less at the discretion of the coach and the agreement of the Director of Coaching.  The final number and selection of players will be determined by the Director of Coaching in consultation with the Head Coach.  The primary factor in determining the number of players on the final roster is ability.

If there are more players wishing to play for a team than the roster number allows, those additional players will be offered spots as practice players.  Practice players may be added to the active roster, but only when a determination is made by the Head Coach - in consultation with the Director of Coaching.
