Spring 2015 Arsenal Tryouts

Spring 2015 Arsenal Tryouts

HYSA will hold tryouts for our competitive Arsenal program for the Spring 2015 season this fall.

There are some differences from last year.  The Montana Youth Soccer Association has discontinued the Academy program so U10 and U11 players who previously played Academy will now be moved into the Arsenal program.  U10 through U12 players are evaluated during tryouts in order to form teams with the goal of equally balancing talent and ability across the teams.  For players new to the Arsenal program, please be aware that Arsenal teams are traveling teams and your player can end up traveling out of town on many weekends.  See “Cost” below for more information.

The tryout process will be as follows:

  1. All players must register for tryouts and pay the $175 registration fee. This fee is applied to the overall Arsenal season fee of $365.
  2. Players must attend BOTH tryout sessions for their appropriate age group, unless advance arrangements are made with the HYSA Executive Director.
  3. All Play ups/downs are only good for one season and must be skill based. Any player requesting a play up or down must complete the required form and submit it to the HYSA Executive Director in advance of the tryout. The HYSA Executive Director will advise the players on which tryout to attend in advance, and it is likely that a player requesting a play-up/down will attend tryouts for both the appropriate age group and the one for which they are requesting to play with. No same-day requests for play-ups/down will be accepted. See below for more information.
  4. All Players must check in at the dome on day 1 of the tryouts. At check-ins, each players will recieve a number and attach it to their clothing as directed. A player will not be issued a second number at the second tryout session. They must keep and bring their initial number from the first tryout to the second.
  5. At each tryout session, a full player evaluation will be performed.
  6. All players must check-in at both tryout sessions.
  7. Players are NOT to wear any identifying HYSA gear and will be asked to change if they do. All players must wear white tops.  
  8. Players must have proper protection (shin guards fully covered by socks) and soccer cleats.
  9. HYSA will provide all equipment. Players are not to bring a soccer ball with them.
  10. All players are responsible for their own warm ups. Players need to be ready to play by the tryout start time to maximize playing time with limited light available.
  11. HYSA attempts to place all players on a team, but in the event that we are unable to place a player, a refund of the registration fee will be issued.
  12. At HYSA’s discretion, some players who may not meet minimum standards for an age group may be placed on an age group one year below to better their player development.
  13. All players will be required to commit to their team by paying the balance of the Arsenal season fee by November 30, 2014.

Forms

Cost

The total program fee for the Spring 2015 Arsenal season is $365.  Click here to see additional expenses that may be incurred and to see what is covered by your program fee.

Arsenal teams are traveling teams – this means that your player can end up traveling many weekends in the spring to play soccer.  Travel may include trips as far away as Billings or Whitefish.

Uniforms

All players will be required to purchase a new uniform if they have not purchased one from the past Spring or Fall season and will not be permitted to play with the old uniform or any uniform pieces that are not a part of the new uniform kit. The uniform cost will be $89.90 (same as previous uniform cost) and will include an all royal blue kit and an all white kit.

Coaches

Coaches for the Spring 2015 season will be announced as soon as they are available.
