GRAA's travel soccer tryouts for the Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 Seasons will be held on 5/23-5/27.
Tryouts are open to all Glen Ridge residents’ children born in 2008 (who will be starting 8th grade in Fall 2022) to 2016 who would like to be considered for the travel teams next fall and spring. Travel teams are formed in the fall for both the fall and spring season- there will not be tryouts in the spring.
Our teams will participate in competitive flights within the Northern Counties Soccer League. Each team will train twice a week for 90 minutes (1 hour for Festival).
While we expect to form at least one team at each age group, a second team will be contingent upon having enough players.
The tryout will be managed entirely by our professional training partners and will provide an unbiased evaluation of a player’s ability. The evaluations will follow the 4 pillars model - mentality, technical, tactical and physical, and each pillar is weighted based on the age bracket and in same order of importance as listed above. The focus of the tryout will be a fun, relaxed, no pressure opportunity.
The tryouts are mandatory if your child wishes to play travel soccer in fall 2022 or spring 2023. So please don't wait and register today. Please attend both sessions if possible- it will allow us to get a more accurate assessment of your child. Tryouts are scheduled during our current spring training sessions for each age group - current players are also required to tryout and should attend these sessions.
