2018 Competitive Team Tryouts

2018 TPSC Competitive Team Tryouts

 

Competitive Soccer Tryouts

*Tryouts are only for last season's TPSC 2017-18 registered competitive players who do not play for another Norcal competitive club, and, any recreational players. If you are interested in playing for a TPSC competitive team and currently play for another Norcal competitive club please contact TPSC Director of Coaching Mattias Kodzoman prior to registering for tryouts.  Mattias Kodzoman doc@tiburonsoccer.org or 415 205 0401

TPSC coaches understand that tryouts can be stressful experiences and will do what they can to provide as much information as possible about the process to the players and parents.

In general terms, tryouts consist of small sided games and large sided games observed by our coaching staff. Multiple coaches will observe players and use the assigned numbers to take notes and make selections.

The players will be evaluated based on their performance at the tryout. Returning players are not given any special preference over new players at tryouts.

 

Please Note: The TPSC Competitive Teams will start up their mandatory season August 13th with a weeklong team camp.  Every player who commits to a TPSC competitive team is expected to attend the team camp August 13th, 2018. (Boys and Girls U8 (2011) will have their 3-day camp starting August 20th, 2018.

 

From the Director of Development & Coaching, Mattias Kodzoman

I encourage any player wishing to improve his or her soccer skills to attend the TPSC soccer tryouts. We strive to offer the local players a fantastic soccer experience and are planning to host over 20 competitive boys and girls teams for the fall of 2018! Playing competitive soccer is not only a lot of fun but you will develop life skills as well as lifelong friendships.

 

Team Formation: 

Birth Years: TPSC forms teams by birth year in accordance with US Soccer. So players who are born, for example, in 2005 will try out with other players born 2005.

 

Playing Format:

For the season of 2018 the playing format will be 4v4 (B/G U8’s), 7v7 (B/G U9-U10’s), 9v9 (U11-U12’s) and 11v11 (U13’s and older)

Preparing for Tryouts

For Parents:

1) Discuss the tryout process with your player and explain that this is a learning experience. Discuss how he/she should handle being asked to join the team and also discuss how he/she would feel if not invited. Each year there are kids who do not make teams. But it’s very common to see many of these players play House (Rec League), work on their game by attending the Club’s clinics, camps and by playing futsal in the winter. They then try out the following year and make the team. So although the tryouts can be stressful there are also a number of lifelong lessons that can be learned from the experience. Parental expectations and preparation can be a critical part of a child’s learning from the experience - whether or not he/she make a competitive team.

2) The kids should prepare for the tryout by practicing; either on their own, with a parent or with the one of the Club coaches one of our Club Clinics.

3) It is a good idea to watch some soccer on TV, Fox Soccer Channel shows a condensed highlights show of one of the top leagues in the world every Sunday at 6pm each Sunday.

When will decisions be made?

  • Rosters will be posted on the TPSC website by Wednesday March 14th, 5 PM
  • IMPORTANT!  If your child is selected for a team, you must register and make a payment online to confirm your acceptance on the roster by 6 PM on March 15th, 2018 to guarantee your childs spot on the team.
  • A team meeting will take place in late March, 2018 where you can do sizing of uniforms, and important club and team information.

 

I didn’t make a team. Now what?

  • Consider the coach’s observations of what you need to work on.
  • Participate in a TPSC Player Development Academy or TPSC Summer Camps.
  • Play on a Rec or Interleague team this year; enjoy your soccer; work hard with your coach and TPSC professional trainer to improve your skills. Most of all, have fun!
  • Attend as many TPSC clinics during the year as you can.
  • Attend soccer camps and clinics this summer; each week at soccer camp is equal to an ENTIRE SEASON of training!!!
  • * The TPSC holds clinics and camps throughout the year.
  • * There are also several other summer day camp programs that operate locally in June and July.
  • * There are also some great sleep-away camps throughout northern CA.
  • Get a friend, get your brother or sister, or get your parent and kick a ball around every day. Practice juggling, kicking and dribbling. Getting better at soccer is all about how many times you touch a ball!!!
  • Don’t get discouraged! Come back next year and try out again!!!
