2017-18 Boys Team Tryouts

AFC Lightning coaching staff will be evaluating players based on the four components of soccer:

• Technical – quality of first touch, ball mastery, and the efficiency and comfort level of the skills needed to play the game.
• Tactical – Understanding different systems of play, shape, rotation, and roles and responsibilities on offense and defense.
• Psychological – problem solving, decision making, composure, mental toughness and character.
• Physical – rate players on agility, balance, coordination, speed, aerobic and anaerobic capacity.

In addition, we will also be looking for players who are enthusiastic, have the desire to learn, demonstrate good character, possess a positive attitude and want to develop their overall ability as a soccer player.

Team Formation - Academy (U9-U12)

Places on the academy program are offered to participants who want to join the AFC Lightning Academy Program under the following conditions:

• Players have regular attendance to training, games, and tournaments.
• Players need to possess minimum level of skill and need to possess a maximum level of desire and determination to improve.

Team Formation - Select (U13-U19)

Roster sizes will be structured to allow a free movement of players between teams in an age group on a week-to-week basis to reward those players who have excelled in training and games, as dictated by the age group coach.

We recommend that players attend all 3 tryout/evaluation days to help the staff identify player’s existing skill levels, strengths, and needs going into the fall season.
