2014 Arsenal Tryouts

Tryouts for 2014 Arsenal teams have been completed.

HYSA will hold tryouts for our competitive Arsenal program for the 2014 spring season this fall. The information needed is below. The tryout process will be as follows:

  1. All players must register for tryouts and pay the $100 registration fee. This fee is simply part of the overall Arsenal season fee of $355.
  2. Players will attend BOTH tryout sessions for their appropriate age groups. They will need to check-in, receive a number and attach it to their t-shirt/pinny (pinnies provided). All required forms (below) and safety procedures (below) must be followed. 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.
  3. When a player checks in, an evaluation form will be created for them.
  4. At each tryout session, a full player evaluation will be performed.
  5. all players must check-in at both tryout sessions.
  6. On or about November 16, the Coaching Committee and head coaches will meet to discuss team formations.
  7. On or about November 17, all teams will be announced and teams will be contacted by their head coach,
  8. HYSA attempts to avoid cutting players at all cost, but in the unlikely event that we are unable to place a player, a full refund will be issued.
  9. 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.
  10. All players will be required to sign their commitment to their team and order a new uniform for the 2014 season. These dates are below. If a player is unavailable to sign and order a uniform on their assigned date, they may do it earlier, but not later.
  11. All players will be issued their tryout evaluation forms at a later date for purposes of player development.

The total for the 2014 Arsenal season will be $355 and will be broken into two payments:

  • $100 non-refundable registration fee due at time of online registration.
  • $255 remainder due by January 5 for teams participating in the RQT OR due by February 1 for teams not participating in the RQT.
  • A $25 fee will be assessed to both the tryout registration and remainder for late processing.

The spring 2014 season will mark a new uniform cycle for HYSA Arsenal. HYSA has signed a uniform contract with Play On Soccer and PUMA. All players will be required to purchase a new uniform 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.


Due to many of our Arsenal coaches being parents of players trying out, coaches will not officially be assigned and announced until after tryouts have been completed and teams have been formed.
