Team Formation

Age Group - Team formation for FC West Soccer Club is based upon age groups. US Youth Soccer sets age groups to help ensure fair and competitive play in youth soccer. Players are expected to tryout in their appropriate age groups. You will find chart for current age groups here.

Selection Process - Three or four evaluators per age group usually conduct the selection process with one of them assigned as head coach for that age. Players are evaluated on skill, attitude, and coachability.

FC West makes every effort to keep the process as unbiased as possible and will notify the parents in a timely manner as to whether their player made the team or not. Players that are selected for teams need to indicate their acceptance of the offered position and are expected to follow the player commitment policy. Upon acceptance a minimum payment of 25% of registration fees are required by June 1st.

The Season

Training - Teams are expected to train 11 months out of the year, a minimum of 2 days per week during the season.

Tournaments - Competitive teams participate in 2 tournaments during the summer. More tournaments may be selected by the coach to suit the needs of the team.

League Play - It is typical for Competitive teams to play in the most competitive leagues within the state association. Both Fall and Spring Leagues may have both Saturday and Sunday games.

Players are required to tryout again each year for the next Fall Season in May.

Please register online now if your child is planning to attend Competitive Tryouts.
