Registration Form (all competitive age groups)

Our Competitive 2021/22 Tryouts are coming in May. Once you submit the form, we will follow up with additional information via email.

TRYOUT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

There are often questions that pop-up before, during and after tryouts. See below for some of the most common ones.
How do I signup for Tryouts?

Online registration is available on the TRYOUTS INFORMATION PAGE here. It is strongly recommended to pre-register for tryouts. Pre-registration will speed up the athlete’s check-in at their first trial session. Pre-registration closes at midnight the day before trying out. If you can not pre-register, you are allowed to walk up registration. Registrants who walk up must have a parent or guardian present to sign the waiver of medical and liability.

What can we expect at tryouts?

Our teams are created through a tryout process for athletes. Two adhesive tryout numbers will be assigned to each athleteto be worn at each tryout session. During the tryout, athletes are known by that specific number. Coaches can base their choices on the skill and ability the athletes show during the tryouts. Athletes will receive notice of their test results from age group coaches after the last tryout session.

What should the player bring to Tryouts?

Athletes are expected to dress like soccer athletes and for the weather. Please carry a copy of your birth certificate or passport to the first tryout session if you’re new to the club (it will be returned to you). Please do not wear any clothes from past clubs / teams or uniform pieces.

What is the process should a tryouts session be cancelled or rescheduled?

Tryout sessions may be rescheduled or cancelled due to scarcity of fields or severe weather conditions. Until your tryout, check back regularly to the NextGen website. If you are pre-registered, we will send out any last-minute cancellations or rescheduling updates via email. We also encourage you to follow our social media channels.

Should the player attend all tryout dates?

For your age group, we recommend that you attend all the tryout sessions. The more sessions you attend, the greater the chance that your talents will be seen by the head coach and the evaluators. You’ll need to attend at least one session. If there is an inevitable conflict for your age with all of the classes, or if you are sick or injured, please contact us. A supplementary session can, under certain conditions, be arranged for an age group.

What if my child is hurt during the tryout dates?

If you’re injured and unable to perform at tryouts, you’ll need to report and carry your doctor’s note explaining the injury along with an estimation of when you can start training. Players will then arrange a date with the Academy to attend a team training session and be evaluated and possibly eligible for a squad. A jersey number will be assigned to injured players, and their injury will be recorded on the evaluator sheets of the tryout.

How is my child notified of a spot on a team?

Roster spots may be discussed during the tryout sessions. The coaches for the respective teams will continue to finalize rosters through phone calls to the selected players once tryouts are completed. The A team leader must first complete their rosters, then the team coaches B, C, etc. While our goal is to have everybody informed within 48 hours, this depends on the ability of the coach to meet players / parents and player involvement. After the final tryout session you can help the process by sticking close phones. When the coach calls, a decision on an offer is expected. You should be thinking ahead of time about the different offers you may get so you can give the coach a reply immediately.

After the age group’s final tryout session the coaches must discuss their picks with the Coaching Directors.

  • U13 – U19 play 11v11 and will have a roster of 14-18 players on a team
  • U11 and U12 play 9v9 and will have a roster of 11-13 players on a team
  • U9 and U10 play 7v7 and will have a roster of 9-11 players on a team

All players will receive a call from a NextGen coach or Director, regardless if they have been selected for a team.

Team Commitments are Taken Seriously

Whenever an athlete makes a commitment to Next Generation Soccer Academy by accepting a coach-extended offer, the commitment will not be taken lightly. When making an offer to an athlete, Next Generation Soccer Academy takes careful consideration and each player should do the same to make their decision to accept a roster spot. When an athlete violates their commitment, we’re not only going to have lost one athlete but we’re going to have lost another player who’d commit and fill the roster spot. When an athlete undertakes to join a team, it is for one seasonal year of play and one full year of payment to Next Generation Soccer Academy. Accordingly, Next Generation Soccer Academy follows a strict “no refund” policy. Once an athlete has committed to a team from the Next Generation Soccer Academy they are expected to commit for the full year.

Are returning players given preference?

No. The tryouts are an open process, and the selection is based on the ability and skill displayed by player during the tryouts. Returning players are being evaluated throughout the previous season and those evaluations are taken into consideration.

My child would like to pay, but I may not be able to afford it. Is there financial assistance?

Next Generation Soccer Academy has a financial assistance plan for those who are unable to bear the full cost of playing. Please complete the Application for Financial Aid and apply to the Office. Please be sure that all the financial documents are turned in with the application. Under the About Us section on our website, you can find the financial aid application.

How do I register my child for a team?

Once you’ve received a telephone call from the Next Generation Soccer Academy coach and accepted a position on the team, you’ll receive an email with registration instructions. You may need to submit a copy of the athlete’s birth certificate or passport during the registration process, as well as a headshot for the player’s ID card. You’ll also be asked to enter your player’s personal history and medical insurance details. The Medical Release Form, Parent and Player Conduct Codes are done electronically and sent via email at the end of the registration. The deadline for these will be included in the communications. Both athletes have to be registered before the summer team meeting. An athlete may not participate in any activities with the team until registered.

What is the team formation meeting?

Once a team has been finalized, players and families must complete the following:

  1. Complete online registration
  2. Make sure your other forms (Medical Release Card, Code of Conduct ) have been completed through our online docusign portal
  3. Make payment arrangements to the Treasurer for tournament costs, team equipment expenses, etc. (cash, check or credit card)
  4. Register for volunteer positions
  5. Order uniforms through a provided link (sent via email)
  6. In person meeting with coach and Directors to review upcoming season plan

Meeting times and locations for team formation will be conveyed to all parents / players when their player registration information is provided. Each player must have a parent or guardian who will attend the meeting. The player must also attend.

How do I order a uniform?

Next Generation Soccer Academy has partnered with Capelli for uniforms. Each team will get a link to order all their training and uniform gear.
