We highly recommend that all players who desire to play competitive soccer next year attend their age specific tryout dates. Any competitive player that is choosing to tryout in a birth year other than their true age group, must specify this in the online tryout registration.
If you intend to tryout for LPDL , then you need to register through the LPDL tryout link. If a player does not meet the LPDL ability/skill criteria, the player will be placed back into their birth year tryout to give that player the best chance to gain a place on a SU team. Players may be asked to move up to the LPDL from the competitive tryouts during the week. Our goal is to achieve the best fit for each player for the next year. Please do not make any assumptions based on where players are being placed throughout the tryout week as selections are not final until the coaching staff discusses each individual player.
The LPDL structure will comply with the US Developmental Academy Model as best as our state environment will allow. Targeted age groups for the first year are U14-U15, U16-U17.
Due to the staggered completion dates of state cups, competitive tryouts across the state will take place over an 8 week period. Therefore, to compensate our staff coaches during this time period, there will be a $20 per player Competitive tryout fee. This fee also covers all administrative costs and the tryout t-shirts. No player will receive a tryout number before their fee is paid. Payment must be made online at the time of tryout registration OR by check, cash or money order in our office before the tryout dates. We will NOT be able to accept payment at the field on the day of tryouts.
Players who are selected for a competitive roster are making a full year commitment to the club and their assigned team. The team selections will be posted on the CABOSA website by tryout number as follows: U11-U13 May 8 th , U14 and above June 27 th . Players will have two weeks from the posting date to accept their invitation to play. Players that do not accept their invitation to play by completing the online registration prior to the invitation deadline will lose their respective roster spots.
We have scheduled our annual informational meeting for Academy and Competitive players on Wednesday, April 5 th at the LSUS Science Lecture Auditorium. From 6:30 to 7:00 pm w e will discuss the structure of our U9 (2009 birth year) and U10 (2008 birth year) Academy Program. This will include our training philosophy, practice and game schedules, as well as the coaching assignments for 2017-2018. Any player that was born in 2010 and wishes to play up in the Academy Program must be approved by Radi Baltov our Academy Director prior to registering. Academy evaluations are NOT a tryout. All players, that are true age group 2008/2009 players and wish to participate in the Academy, will be accepted.
The Competitive portion of the meeting will begin at 7:00 pm and conclude at approximately 8:00 pm . We will discuss the new LPDL league, the tryout process, the competitive fee structure, practice & game schedules, and coaching assignments for 2017-2018. The Competitive meeting is for players that will fall in the U11-U19 age groups with a birth year of 1999 - 2007.
