Description:  

SWYSC is opening registration for team formation and select play. Tryouts/team placement will be held on Monday, July 6th:

  • If we are in WA Safe Start Phase 3, live tryouts will be held.
  • If we are in WA Safe Start Phase 2, then teams will be formed via team placement. Placement involves coaches forming teams by rostering players without tryouts, as no live tryouts can be held in Phase 2.

July 6th was chosen for tryouts to make sure SWYSC can meet the timelines provided by the North Puget Sound League (NPSL), the select league in which our club plays.

SWYSC is following Washington State and Washington Youth Soccer (WYS) guidelines. Please review Washington Youth Soccer's Return to Play guidelines to learn more about how WYS is aligning with the Governor's WA Safe Start program:

The select team formation process will be this:

  • The select registration event is for players with a birth year of 2010 and older.
  • $35 registration fee covers initial select registration fee plus additional equipment costs, including PPE, for coaches and volunteers. The fee is nonrefundable and $25 of the fee is applicable to the total select registration fee of $275.

 

Dates

  • Registration is open through July 5th
  • Possible pre-tryout training sessions: It's possible in WA Safe Start Phase 3 that some select coaches may start training players in mid-June with a plan for sessions to continue up to the week of 6/28. Final session frequency and schedule to be determined by the coaches/managers running an age group and communicated via email.*
  • Team formation date: July 6, 2020

*Please note the select tryout registration covers both the select team play and any pre-tryout training sessions, the latter of which may be limited due to date/time limitations and number of coaches available.

Select Team Player Pool

Teams playing in the fall NPSL season will need to be formed by July 6th in order for the teams to finalize team rosters and player team registration before the NPSL team registration deadline. Given the challenges Covid-19 presents, SWYSC needs to be prepared for these team rosters to be selected by either physical tryouts or in absentee by placement. In order to accomplish this, it is imperative that all interested players register to be in the Select Team Player Pool as soon as possible. Please note that returning players will be placed on rosters in advance of new players and that registration is not a guarantee that a player will be placed on a team.

Training Sessions

The optional pre-tryout training sessions (optional to both coaches and players) are an effort to provide interested select players and coaches an opportunity to get some touches on the ball, gain confidence, restart their conditioning and begin to normalize play under the WA State and WYS guidelines. Please note the following:

 

  • This would be a short series of one-hour sessions over a two-week period beginning mid-June, subject to South Whidbey Parks & Rec approval.
  • These sessions have no bearing on the player being selected for a select team.
  • Sessions may be limited due to date/time limitations and number of coaches available in certain age groups.
  • Recreational soccer plan for fall play is being discussed now. More information will be forthcoming once it's available!

 

Thank you and see you on the pitch!
