Spring Tryouts for FSC

High School Tryouts, earlier start

U16 & U18 tryout on Wednesday 11/5 moved up to 3:30 – 5:15 PM due to daylight savings time. Still okay if your player can make it at 4:00 PM, we will integrate them in. Winter indoor tryouts will still be available for players unable to make Wednesday. Please contact coach to reserve indoor tryout spot”

Competitive Spring team formation

We had several players tryout for u12 & u14s on 11/19. We have delayed team formation for several reasons. Foremost is the opportunity to do indoor tryouts with players unable to attend on 11/19. At this point, it appears we have enough players for two teams in the U14 age groups (boys & girls). We will attempt to have one u14 team meeting for each gender (boys & girls)with both coaches attending prior to indoor beginning in January. On the U12 side we have enough players for one team per gender.  We hope that numbers can grow to two teams per gender. There were several strong U11 girl players who tried out for U12s. We will place those girls on a u11 roster for now. We will make adjustments based on ability and numbers during the indoor training.

If you have not signed your player up for this spring, please do. It is important for team formation and giving each player the best opportunity to play. At this point, no age groups are closed.

Referees not registered in the previous year:

Any referee who was not registered with the U.S. Soccer Federation the previous year may be certified at the grade previously held after taking and passing the written qualifying examination, fitness test, and assessments. The following policy applies to referees who were previously certified and registered with the Federation:

1. Grade 8 referees who miss 1-2 consecutive years of registration can be re-registered as a grade 8 after completing a Referee Re-certification clinic.

2. Grade 8 referees who miss 3-4 consecutive years of registration can be re-registered after taking the Referee Bridge (Grade 9 to Grade 8) Course or the entire Entry Level Referee Training Course.

3. Grade 8 referees who miss 5 or more consecutive years must re-take the entire Entry Level Referee Training Course.

4. Grade 7 Referees and Higher – Referees can only be registered at the grade they qualify for. Referees who were Grade 7 or higher should be downgraded a minimum of one (1) grade, as per current policy (as long as they have met the criteria for that grade). Once they retake the appropriate course as listed above for grade 8 referees and have completed all the requirements for the previously held grade, they may be upgraded.

5. Grade 9 Referees who miss one or two years of registration may be re-certified after fulfilling all re-certification requirements for that grade. A Grade 9 Referee who misses two years of registration can be eligible to take the Bridge Course (9-8) after he or she has met the requirements to be re-certified as Grade 9.

6. US Soccer Federation Referee Instructors who wish to re-certify as a referee after a lapse in referee registration may be registered as a grade 8 referee upon meeting current recertification requirements, no matter how long it has been since they last registered as a referee, if they are currently registered as a US Soccer instructor and have taught, at a minimum, one entry-level referee training course in the last two years.
