CHAFFEE COUNTY UNITED FALL TRYOUTS
WHO: U12 BOYS AND U12 GIRLS
WHAT: Open tryouts for the fall competitive teams.
WHEN: Tuesday May 26th
Girls: 4:30-5:30 pm
Boys: 5-6 pm
WHERE: Ben Oswald Park
Each season our teams are open for tryouts, to give new players a chance to challenge for a spot on the team roster. Tryouts are an hour in length and assess basic technical abilities, as well as tactical understanding.
While we normally roster only 16 players in order to insure quality playing time for each player, we do potentially offer 2 additional “training player” spots for players “on the cusp” who show genuine interest in playing competitively, but are not quite ready for that level of play. This allows those players to receive advanced training, but not play in the games unless there is a roster spot open due to injury, illness, etc.
I invite all new players born between 8/1/2002-8/1/2004 that are interested in trying out for their respective team to join us on Tuesday.
All current rostered players on both the boys and girls teams who intend to play in the Fall, are expected to participate in the tryout as well. Teams that have just finished the season as u12 teams will move to the u13 age category for this coming Fall.
The Competitive program it is for advanced level players and requires a significant level of commitment. The season runs from August through October. There are three training session a week. They alternate between BV and Salida. Games are on weekends. The schedule varies and games can be either on Saturday or Sunday or both days, although most typically are on Saturday. The typical season requires travel to at least 5 away games that could be as far as Fort Collins. Tournaments are part of the season and typically require and over night stay. Fees run around $300 per season. This includes tournament entry fees. All travel and lodging expenses are separate. Players are required to purchase socks, shorts, shoes, and shin guards. Jerseys are provided.
