What are Tryouts?

Tryout Format:

- Upon arrival at age-appropriate tryout, players will check-in at field site. Each player will be provided with a numbered club t-shirt that specifically identifies each player.
 Players will participate in game-like environments in front of numerous professional coaches to evaluate players in realistic settings. Tryout games may take place in 3v3, 5v5, 9v9 or 11v11 settings depending on age group allowing lots of touches on the ball for the players and lots of opportunities to be observed in game related activities. Goalkeepers will be included.

Player Selection and Playing Up:
Players will be placed on teams based on what is developmentally appropriate for the age group and individual players. Players must try out in their own age group; coaches will determine which players need to be moved up. Players are selected based on a number of different factors. The main factors for consideration are the player's age, ability, and commitment level. 9U going to 10U Academy players: may try out for 11U, but only a few players may be selected per Iowa Soccer Association rules.
