Team Policies Defined


Team Formation:
Team Formation (events such as tryouts or player evaluation events) are the dates listed above where players are able to attend sessions conducted by each club interested in forming a team at different age groups. Offers CANNOT be made during tryouts.
Open Opportunity Period:
The open opportunity period is a time prior to the start of actual tryouts where a club, coach, parent, or player, may contact players from other clubs without first seeking permission from the players’ currently registered club.  The Open Opportunity period will consist of no physical or on-field activities for players (e.g. clinics, training, ball handding, etc.) but allows members to explore opportunities.
No Contact Period:
This is the time during Regionals when teams can train as normal, but coaches and administrators cannot contact players outside their club
Blackout Dates:
These dates were created to block out a period of time for families to be able to enjoy the holidays without the pressure of decisions, practices, etc. Families can call clubs during these dates if there are questions, etc, and coaches and administrators can call parents, but coaches and administrators cannot initiate any soccer related activities, or call players, out of respect for those families that want to enjoy the holiday. The idea behind this is to allow clubs to follow up with parents if they have not heard back about a bid, but in general, to be respectful to players and families about the holiday period.
Offers/Acceptances:
Roster spots, or offers, can be offered on designated dates assigned below.  At 10:00 a.m. on the assigned day, clubs can email, or phone players to offer spots on a team.
Secondary Team Formation Dates:
Secondary team formation (events such as tryouts or player evaluation events) are dates listed above for clubs wishing to fill teams they may not have been able to fill during the original tryout process.  Both players and clubs can contact the state office to help facilitate teams and players needing places to play.
