Frequently Asked Questions

The following are the most commonly asked questions regarding the tryout process and the formation of our representative teams.  The questions and answers below are not meant to be all-encompassing and if you are interested in our complete policies, procedures, and guidelines for our representative team program, please refer to the Representative Program Guidelines, which is available to you once you log into your account in our system.

Is there a Fee for Tryouts?

There is no fee to tryout for a representative team, but players must register first before trying out.

How should I register for the tryouts?

Online pre-registration is required for the tryouts.  New and returning families will need to create a new online account through the link on the 2022-23 Tryout Registration page under Programs and Representative Teams at www.concordsoccer.com and select the appropriate age group for tryouts.  Online registration will be available beginning on March 28.

How will my child be notified if he is selected and how do we accept the position on the team?

Following the second tryout, players will be notified via telephone call that they have been selected.  Following that conversation, an email invitation will be sent to the address you submitted when you registered.  You will have 72 hours to accept the position on the team and submit your acceptance fee.  If, after this time period you do not accept the position on the team, the position on the team may be offered to another player.

What if we can only attend one of the tryouts?

While we always encourage interested players to attend both scheduled tryouts to have the maximum amount of opportunities for evaluation, players are only required to attend one tryout to be considered. 

What if there is questionable weather on the day of the scheduled tryouts? 

Any changes or postponement will be posted by no later than 4pm on the day of the scheduled tryout on www.concordsoccer.com.  If a tryout is postponed on a particular day, the noted rain date will be utilized as the second tryout.

How many players make the teams?

For new U9 teams, the maximum roster size is 14 players.  If the total number of players warrants the formation of two teams, two teams may be formed.

How will my child be evaluated during the tryouts?

Players are issued a numbered identification vest at check-in and the coaches and evaluators identify players by their numbers.  Players are assessed while playing small-sided and full-sided games during the tryouts – it is our belief that the best way to evaluate if a player is at the level of a representative team is to allow them to play and evaluate them accordingly.

When does the season start? 

The team typically will start training in August.  We typically hold a meeting for parents of new players in July, and uniforms will be need to be ordered before then.
