Team Evaluations
Select Soccer

Welcome to CGSA Select Soccer

The CGSA Select Soccer program is committed to developing youth soccer players and helping each and every player reach his or her full potential. CGSA offers top-level teams for those players who are committed to the game and have the ability to play at the state, regional and national level.

Every May/June CGSA holds Select Soccer team tryouts. Any youth soccer player (Boys & Girls U11-U19) may attend a CGSA Select Soccer tryout. There are no set teams so all players have an equal chance of making a team each year. In CGSA Select Soccer, players are evaluated and selected for the program by CGSA Director of Coaching and his selection committee.

Try-outs for Fall 2006 will have mandatory attendance. All players will be required to attend try-outs unless prior arrangements have been made with the Director Of Coaching. 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.

Would like to remind and emphasize to any and all players, parents and coaches in our association and community that Select Team Evaluations are OPEN to everyone!

Select teams that want to retain their current status such as Classic I or Athena A must retain half plus one of their roster from the previous playing season or replaced with players of "like ability."

Therefore, teams are not "set." New players evaluating at a higher level may replace players from the previous season’s roster.

Also, new interested players may be added as players drop off and slots have to be filled.

All participants are evaluated against each other in order that players are placed properly with others of like ability; therefore, more participants provide a larger pool to be chosen from.

Please encourage your children to participate in evaluations.

Recreation Coaches should encourage any potential select player from his or her team to participate in evaluations as well.

We would like to invite and encourage parents who may have some reservations in their child participating in the Select Program or commitment to a team in the program such as travel to call our Director of Coaching or Select Coordinator to answer any questions you may have.

  • Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your evaluation time with shin guards, water, ball and registration materials
  • 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.
  • Letters written to be excused from evaluations will NOT be accepted. If you are unable to attend at your allotted time you must make arrangements with the Director of Coaching.
  • No school or team uniforms are allowed
  • Each participant must bring a ball, shin guards and drink
  • Evaluations will begin promptly at the allotted time, BE PROMPT AND OUTFITTED TO BEGIN.
  • At registration the following must be provided:
    1. A GYSA state form and City of Savannah Consent Form signed by a parent or guardian. Please download the form and bring with you to tryouts.
    2. A $30.00 non-refundable tryout fee is due at tryouts.
  • Evaluations will not be canceled for any reason including rain. In the event of lightning, a decision will be made at the field by the Director of Coaching.
