FULL TRYOUTS SCHEDULE IN THE TABLE BELOW
Our annual travel soccer registration fee ($1300 for the year), which already covered all registration fees, insurance and training fees for the spring and fall league seasons, will also include a FULL ADIDAS UNIFORM KIT and a PWSC Branded Soccer Ball. This is over a $150 value, on top of what was already an extremely reasonable cost for a full year of soccer that includes approximately over forty (40) 90-minute practices and over fifteen (15) league games, ALL with professional trainers in attendance.
NOW IS A GREAT TIME TO JOIN THE PWSC FAMILY!
(SEE BELOW FOR SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION AS WELL)
The Port Washington Soccer Club provides scholarships and financial assistance to both intramural and travel soccer players every year. We do not provide "merit" scholarships, and ask that only families who truly cannot afford the costs of our program apply for a scholarship. In order to request a scholarship for the 2021-22 travel soccer program, please complete the application using the link below. If your application is approved, you will receive a code to register for travel soccer at a discounted price, once that registration is activated.
The Registration "Tryouts" is not currently available.
Tryouts (U9 and up) starting May 14, 2021!
We will be holding boys and girls age group tryouts / evaluations for all age groups U9 (birth year 2013) and above. This is for travel teams that will compete during the 2021-22 school year (both fall and spring seasons).
For our rising U9's (new teams), we will be holding formal tryouts on the dates noted below. For older age groups, the tryouts are practice sessions for existing teams in those age groups, so it is a bit less formal and more of a workout with the team and the trainer - for players interested in trying out for a different team in an age group, please contact Gerneil Lorne, our Director of Coaching. Under our current model, trainers for each age group will discuss roster placements for next year with the Director of Coaching, to ensure proper placements of players.
Current Schedule Posted Below
Please arrive 15 minutes early so that your child can be assigned a random tryout pinnie number and we can promptly begin the evaluations.
All sessions that are at Harbor Links will be held on Field 4, which is the furthest back to the left when entering from the athletic fields/ executive course parking lot.
Please visit our "Soccer Programs" page for further explanation of our travel program and age group breakdowns.
For Rising U9's (Birth Year 2013):
Players are selected to participate on teams of between 10-12 players and must commit to participate on an annual basis. The program runs the entire 2021-22 school year and consists of an assigned professional trainer, late summer boot camp, a Fall and Spring league game season, two 90-minute practices per week during league seasons, at least one tournament, optional winter training, and optional winter leagues. The program fee is $1300 for the year, although there may be some additional costs ($100-$300) for teams that opt to participate in additional activities and tournaments. For 2021, the PWSC is including in the annual program fee a full Adidas uniform kit ($120+ retail value) and a PWSC branded soccer ball ($30 retail value)! Overall, we believe this is a great value for a year of soccer that provides, for a single fee that can be paid in installments during the course of the year, more than 75 hours of professionally run practices and games, and access to additional clinics and training options (some free, some for an additional cost). Each spring, for the U9-U13 age groups, new tryouts are conducted and players will have an opportunity to move between teams based upon their developmental progress, and there are opportunities to work out and play games with other age-appropriate teams from time to time, for no additional cost. Players will be evaluated on a combination of skill, athleticism, and tactical awareness.
Tryouts will be conducted by the JIGS Soccer Academy at the locations noted in the table below. All rising U9 players who are interested in playing travel soccer next year must tryout to be considered for a team. Once rosters are filled, we cannot admit additional players into the program.
All players are required to bring a size 4 ball, cleats, and have shin guards under their socks. Bring plenty of water as well.
Each new team will also need a volunteer parent manager and an assistant manager to help organize the team and communicate between coach, players, parents, other teams, referees, and the club. During games they are also on the sideline assisting the Coach with team management. As such, managers must go through a formal risk management process and will be trained on the role by other volunteers in the club. If you have an interest please let us know.
For Rising U10's and Up:
For this year, we are implementing a less formal tryout process for U10's and up, since we already have teams formed. For players on existing teams, the tryouts will be at existing training sessions for their age group. Players interested in being considered for a different team in their age group should contact Gerneil Lorne, our Director of Coaching. In any event, our trainers are continually evaluating their rosters during the course of the year, to ensure proper placement. With our club-based model, movement among teams is relatively seamless, even if necessary during the middle of the year.
For players NOT in our program, please register for the tryouts and attend the sessions noted in the chart below - again, if you have any questions please contact our Director of Coaching, Gerneil Lorne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any sessions being held at Harbor Links will be on Field 4, which is the field toward the back left at the facility. The parking for the soccer fields is in the first lot on the left when entering the Harbor Links facility (shared with the Executive Course and Mini-Golf).
Unless you've received permission from our Director of Coaching, players should attend the tryouts for their specific birth year, as noted in the table below. Permission to play "up" is subject to approval on a case-by-base basis, and no players are permitted to play "down" to a younger age group (even if it is the group that matches up to their school grade), per league restrictions.
