What to bring and wear to Tryouts:
Please wear a non-club-affiliated jersey to Tryouts. Each player will be assigned a numbered pinny prior to tryouts. Players must wear cleats and shin guards and bring a water bottle.
You will notice that Tryouts held at South County Youth Soccer tend to consist of some iteration of small-sided games. SCYSC highly values and has had success evaluating players during real, game-like scenarios rather than any specific 'drills'. In this way, common technical skills like footwork, passing and shooting can be assessed, but also so can other skills like: positioning, defensive ability, decision making, communication skills and overall game awareness.
During these activities, independent and qualified Evaluators will be assessing every player individually.
Evaluators may use several metrics to evaluate players:
Coaches, Evaluators, and the SCYSC Soccer Operations Committee will review and discuss all information and create team rosters accordingly.
