It’s time to register for tryouts for the 2017/2018 Cranford Soccer Travel season!

Registration is open now and will go through May 1. The fee for tryouts will be $20 per player trying out. The details below will help you understand the tryout process and give you the tryout dates for each age group. Age groups are determined by the child’s birth year. The Travel Guidelines document here – CSC Travel Guidelines 2017 – 2018 – gives you a complete point of view on the program. We hope your young player feels like giving it a shot!

If you still have questions after reviewing, please contact Karen Lynch, our VP of travel, at kazpal10@gmail.com.

For tryouts, our goal is to have two or more teams set up for each age group for both boys and girls. Of course that depends on volume of kids we have trying out, which is why we encourage every family with a desire to try travel to come out to the tryouts. Our tryouts happen each year for both new and returning players … all players must tryout each and every year.

We have two tryouts for every age group that consist of the following formats, and we strongly urge every child who comes out to attend both tryouts:
1st Session:  1.5 hours (30 minute skill-based / 60 minutes 3v3 or 4v4 scrimmages)
2nd Session:  1.5 hours (30 minute small sided scrimmage / 60 minute 7v7 or 8v8 scrimmages)

These tryouts are run by USA Sports Group, whose trainers control all scoring/rankings of the kids during each of the tryouts. We feel it is very important that all scoring is handled by USA Sports Group so everything is done by a ‘neutral’ party. At the conclusion of the two tryouts, USA submits their scoring to us, which is used to form teams. The best score is kept across the two tryouts, which is why we urge all kids to attend both tryout sessions. It is important that these scores are not published outside of the board and coaches. These USA scores are also not discussed externally with any parent.

The majority of the age groups will try out on May 13 and May 20, and we always do our best to coordinate with other members of the club so we avoid conflicts with existing game schedules.

For tryout dates, we’ll start with the oldest first.

All tryouts are NOW slated to be held at Hillside Avenue School (field directly behind the school). Hillside Avenue School is at 125 Hillside Avenue in Cranford.
