Teams: We'll be moving toward a stable set of rosters for the year, where our goal is to provide a consistent trainer per team, and that trainer can be better engaged with each of the players on that team. We'll also have a better way to measure progress for teams and individuals that our trainers can provide to our players and parents that will be focused on growth within the sport, versus outcomes or records.
Movement: For these age groups, our leagues have flexible ways to allow players to move between teams temporarily in order to experience different play levels, as well as help fill gaps due to scheduling conflicts. Our trainers and coaches can leverage this mechanism to provide a variety of opportunities to players at all levels of our club.
Training: The New York Red Bulls will be our trainers for next year, and we'll look to build our program and continue to find ways to raise the bar on training quality and player experience. As always, we'll be asking you for feedback as to how we can do that better.
Registration: Open now! Please go to our website, choose Register to Play/Participate after loggin in, and register your player before 8 June if you intend to participate in the program for next season. the fee is $75, and will be credited to you if are offered a spot on a team (if not, you forfeit the $75). Please also note that there may be cuts, based on numbers we get, tryout results and our ability to field a viable roster per "level". We would also like to ask that if you do register for travel, that you're committed to the team for the duration of the year. We know that there are many conflicts and understand a periodic absence to balance commitments and can work with the exception, but it becomes both difficult for our coaches and trainers, and unfair to our players when we're piecing rosters together due to chronic absence (Spring especially).
