Hello Amherst Soccer Families,
The Spring season will be giving way to the Summer soon, and that means that it is time for tryouts for players wishing to join or to continue playing in the Travel Soccer program this Fall.
Please see the attached schedule and go to https://www.sportsmanager.us/PublicLinks/OnlineRegistration.asp?Org=571 to register for the tryout according to the grade level of your child in the Fall. Players must register and tryout according to their Fall 2018 school grade level.
All players must register to participate in the tryouts.
If your child is currently on a team, he or she must still register and participate or he or she will not be placed on the team.
A few important points about our tryouts:
- Players will be placed on the team that is most appropriate for their age and skill level.
- You will be notified of the result of the tryout within approximately two weeks from their tryout date.
- All players are required to attend the first date listed and ready to attend the second one . The second date is for callbacks only
- The result of the first tryout may be a call back for a second tryout.
Our Director of Coaching, Chris Monteiro, will be guiding and evaluating the players during the tryout. Players can expect to participate in drills and competitive activities, both individually and in groups or teams.
Required to bring for your tryout:
Soccer ball of the appropriate size for your child’s current age.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact Moe Mooney, our Program Manager or Keith Payne, our Travel Director, at the email addresses below:
Thank you for continuing to be a part of the AYSA family.
