The Monroe Soccer Club will sponsor open tryouts for the Fall 2015 / Spring 2016 seasons in early June of 2015
The Monroe Soccer Club is a member of Connecticut Junior Soccer Association’s South West District and competes against other teams from Fairfield County. Each team practices a minimum of twice a week during their season. League games are played on Sundays. Each team may elect to participate in tournaments within or out-of-state.
The Tryout Process
Dependent upon the age group, there will be two or three tryout sessions. Each player is highly encouraged to attend all sessions. The total scores of all sessions will determine each players overall tryout score, and ultimately their placement on the team. For returning teams, the tryouts will be run by the existing coaches in a particular age group. For the new U9 teams being formed, individuals who have been selected to be the coach of each team will run tryouts. If a team is without a head coach, the Monroe Soccer Club Coaching Director and professional evaluator and will collectively select the team. You will be notified within two weeks of the final tryout of your status for the upcoming season. Each player is evaluated in five categories (overall, technical skills, tactical knowledge, physical attributes, and mental readiness) by the coaching staff, and an independent professional evaluator. Based on these evaluations, the teams are selected by their head coach with approval from the Monroe Soccer Club’s Coaching Director.
When attending tryouts, all players must attend wearing appropriate soccer apparel that includes shin guards and soccer cleats.
