Academy/Select Soccer Tryouts 2009:
The players will attend a three day tryout camp. Each day’s session will last 1 ½ hours. The 2009 fall season coaches will conduct the tryout and Gary Wright, CGSA Club Director and his evaluating coaching staff will do the player evaluations. All players will have a written evaluation that will be available to the player upon request. The individual team coaches will provide player performance input to the evaluators and the evaluators will consult with the coaches on player assignments but the final decision will be made by the Club Director. The players will play small side games 3v3 up to 6v6.

The team managers, in liaison with the CGSA office staff, will be responsible for making sure all players on the team are registered, have completed all paperwork and have paid all registration fees.
There will be a $30 fee per player for tryouts and/or evaluations. This can be paid to the CGSA office prior to tryouts or collected on-site before the first session. All funds will go to covering the administrative cost of the tryouts and any left over funds will go to the CGSA Coaching Development Budget.
Try-outs for Fall 2009 will have mandatory attendance. All players will be required to attend try-outs unless arrangements have been made by May 15th, with the CGSA Club Director. Only players with extenuating circumstances will be accomodated (i.e. injury, sickness or family emergency). Try-outs for a select team are very important. Please do not schedule a summer camp or vacation during this time as it will not be deemed an extenuating circumstance. A player risks not making the team by not attending the try-outs.
U/13 and above Fall 2008:
All players who played up an age group in the fall 2008 season will be eligible to try out for the same team in the fall 2009 tryouts. However, it is also very important that these players try out for their age appropriate group at some point during the tryout week to ensure their opportunity to make that team if they do not make the older age group. There are always opportunities for individual player improvement as well as new players attending the tryouts each summer. Evaluations will be objective in nature and are going to be done by assessing/comparing each player’s level of play with both the anticipated team Classic/Athena level and the other participants in the tryout process. If a player does not make the older age team during the tryouts and the evaluators have not also had an opportunity to see that players’ ability level compared with the age appropriate group, there is no guarantee that they will be placed on the age appropriate squad.
U/9 through U/12:
Any player that played up in age during the fall 08 or the spring 09 will be eligible to try-out for the age group that they played on during the previous season. However this will be at the discretion of the Club Director (Gary Wright) and the Academy Director (Andy Clarke). All decesions will be made with the the best interest of the individual players soccer development .
