Tryout Information Fall 2021 - Spring 2022

2021-22 Try Out Information

2021-22 tryouts will be held June 14th through June 24th, 2021. 

Registration for Tryouts:

Registration is now open.  Click here to register. Registration prior to the day of tryouts is required. Any “walk-ons”/“same day” registrations will be assessed a late registration fee.

During online registration, please make note if you will be trying out for more than one age group, your preferred age group or team (Classic, Elite, or State if offered), or if attending the make-up session.

Please click on “Programs” on our home page to see the difference between our programs.

Age Level for Tryouts:

Players can try out for age levels up to two years older than their birth year.  However, they will be placed on the team or age level that is appropriate based on their skill level.

When and What to bring day of Tryouts:

  • Arrive 15 minutes prior to start of tryouts to check in
  • Shin guards
  • Cleats
  • Water bottle
  • Goalie equipment if trying out for goalie
  • Mask

U11/12 Assessments

It is the goal of Electric City to provide a lower level of stress to our youngest Classic players. Therefore the U11 and U12 will go through an assessment rather than a tryout. The assessment will be used to provide feedback on player development, place players on the appropriate teams, and find out interest for fall and spring teams.

The assessment will be a practice where all players will participate with a staff coach. All players must pre-register for the assessment and pay the tryout fee. Any players who cannot attend the scheduled date should plan to attend the make-up date. 

We will attempt to place all players at this age group on a team if numbers allow. Players who do not come to be assessed on the proper day or makeup date are not guaranteed a spot on a team.  It is very important that if you wish to play fall or spring that you attend the assessment.

U13 - U19 Tryout Evaluations:

The tryout process is structured to be fair and unbiased.

All players will be assigned a unique number that will be used on the assessment form for identification. Names are not used.  The number will be placed on front of a players shorts.  The number is unique to the player and will be used to post offers via ECSA’s website. Please retain this number for future reference.

Tryouts Assessors are respective age level coaches, ECSA DOC, and trainers.  Assessors use a standard assessment form for all tryouts.  Players are scored on technical, tactical and physical play. Assessors are encouraged to write objective comments to help with formation of teams.

Formation of Teams:

The number of teams at each age group is determined by the number of players trying out, the minimum roster size and the ability of the group as a whole to be placed in Classic, Elite or State leagues.

ECSA Tryout Committee will make every effort to form a team for all players who try out. In doing so they may decide to combine two age groups to form a team. (Example U14/15 as some players will be playing high school soccer and are only available for a ½ season.).  Teams will be formed appropriately based on skill level.

Offer Period:

ECSA will extend offers to players who then have 24 hours to accept or decline the offer.  Coaches have the right to give players more time to consider the offer at their discretion.

  • U11 U15 – On time acceptance and complete registration before July 1
  • U16 – U19 – On time acceptance and complete registration before July 10

After those dates, players will not get their registration fee credited for registration.

ECSA Rules:

  • Registration fees are non-refundable. Teams are formed based on tryouts. Dropping out at a later date may jeopardize whether that team has enough players to still play.
  • Some age levels have multiple teams while some age levels may not have enough to field a team.  ECSA reserves the right to combine a team based on the number of attendees at tryouts and will be communicated in the offer.
  • In order to ensure that teams have adequate players, ECSA reserves the right to rescind an offer based on number of declined offers.  Example:  U11 Girls have 12 girls who were sent offers.  Four offers were declined and only eight accepted.  Only eight players is not enough to field a team and ECSA tryout committee will meet to discuss team and then notify players if there is not enough players to form a team.

Special COVID Procedures for 2021

Electric City will be following the latest guidance from WYSA and US soccer in regards to COVID 19 precautions. As of now these are the requirements:

  • All players will be asked to wear a mask to the tryout. Once the tryout begins masks will not be needed as the tryout is outside.
  • Parents are asked to drop of their child, help with check-in, and then wait in their car for the remainder of the tryout.
  • Players should bring their own soccer ball and their own water bottle. Drinking fountains will not be available.
  • Players are asked to keep socially distant from each other before the tryout and in breaks.
