How are tryout dates selected?
Tryout dates are given and allowed by the associations. The club must abide by the approved dates in order to have tryouts.
Do we attend all days of tryouts?
It is recommended that you come to every day if possible. If you have a conflict on any of the 3 days, it is important that you communicate with the coach that is leading your session.
How are teams made?
For current San Antonio City Soccer Club players, making teams is a year-long process. Our staff is continuously communicating about players and their development throughout the year. Our directors keep in contact with staff and make sure players are put on a team that is best suited for their development. Our players attend our Player Placement Event (PPE) for each age group where we offer spots on our teams.
For new players, we invite them to our PPE in May and June. We have sessions for each age group (U11-U19). This is the “tryout” time period which determines teams for the next year(August-June) and any new player is invited to sign up. Teams are formed and players may secure a spot on a team once they have paid the commitment fee.
How long is my player committed to one team/club?
The team your child makes at our Player Placement Event is determined as a player on that roster. A player can move amongst teams throughout the year if playing a level up or down is determined as a better position for the player. A player may also be moved to play with an older age division if deemed appropriate to the player’s development.
This communication will happen throughout the year from the coach or program director to the player/parent as needed.
A season is considered from commitment in May/June to the next calendar year-end – end of 1st week of June.
How long is the season?
The season begins in early August with practices beginning in the second week. This fall season runs until Christmas break (for most public schools). The spring season begins in the second to the third week of January and continues through the 1st week of June.
Are tournaments included in the cost?
Tournaments are not included in registration fees. We do not know the cost of the tournament(s) a team will be registered in at the time of registration in May. Tournaments and showcases teams attend is dependent upon the level of the team and can range depending on the tournament location and other determining factors.
Where do the teams practice?
There are currently three possible practice facilities. STAR Soccer Complex, McAllister Park Lower Bee or Anderson fields, and North West Fields. You may request a practice location, however, we may recommend the best team fit for your player and will let you know where that team practices.
It is important you let us know your practice location preference when you attend our PPE or when you sign up for a Player Opportunity Event.
How many practices a week are required?
SACSC holds 2-3 training sessions per week dependent on the level of play and determined by our DOC (Director of Coaching). U11-U19 will have a minimum of 2 training sessions per week. Some teams may practice 3 times per week.
