HSA Select Tryouts 2021-2022 Season

All current covid protocols at the time of tryouts will be followed.

HSA Select is now offering Open Training Sessions prior to tryouts.

Girl's U12 (Birth Year 2010) - 2nd Team Tryouts (updated 6/4)

We had a great turnout of quality select-level girls at our GU12/2010 HSA Select tryouts a couple weeks ago.  When this happens, we explore the possibility of creating a 2nd team.  In this case, we have found a coach and are excited to see if there is enough interest from your daughters to form a 2nd team.

Here are the times/locations for HSA Select tryouts for the 2nd GU12/2010 team:

- Monday June 7th - 6:30pm at Hiawatha Playfield
- Wednesday June 9th - 6:30pm at Hiawatha Playfield


We would like the players to be at both tryouts for the best evaluation, but we realize this is late notice.  If you can't be at both tryouts, please let us know beforehand.

The tryouts will be for a GU12 team, mostly made up of girls born in 2010.  For those higher performing girls born in 2011, they are welcome to try out as well.  Registration for tryouts is free.

For those of you that registered for tryouts the first time, you don't need to register again - we hope to see you there. 

If you did not register your daughter for tryouts, please register on the HSA Select Registration page (scroll down to the '2010 (GU12)' age division and click the Register Now button).

If you have questions about the HSA Select program, please visit our Resources Page.  More information about tryouts can be found below.

We will send out more information on Monday to those registered.

Tryout Process (updated 5/11)

HSA Select is a competitive soccer program that serves young soccer players who are interested in receiving high-quality training, competitive league play within a structure that encourages multi-sport athletes and other activities outside of year-round soccer.

Registration

Register online to ensure a quick check-in process at tryouts. You'll need to create an account online if you do not already have one. There is a $10 registration fee.

  • You can register online when you walk up (you'll need to register on your phone) but we prefer online registration in advance to help with planning.
  • All registrations will be completed on birth year (example: player born on 5/21/2008 will register for “2008/U-14”tryout).
  • If your player desires to try out at an older age group (play up), please review our Play Up Policy and contact us at [email protected]

Check in

Please arrive 15-20 minutes early to check in each day. Each player will receive a numbered pinnie on the first day, to wear during tryouts. Players must return the pinnie after each tryout session, and will be issued the same-numbered pinnie for the second day of tryouts. (Pinnies will be washed between sessions.) Tryout numbers are used by coaches when making player selections.

Attendance

Players are strongly encouraged to attend both days of tryouts. If you can attend only one session or arriving late, please let check-in staff know. No make-up tryouts will be held.

What to Wear

  • Players must wear facial coverings (masks) at all times during tryouts.
  • Players must wear appropriate soccer footwear, shin guards and bring their own water bottle and ball.
  • Players may not wear jewelry of any kind. This includes necklaces, rings, earrings, or bracelets of any kind (including rubber bracelets).
  • Players may NOT wear current club clothing. Players doing so may be asked to remove such items during tryouts.
  • Tryouts are held rain or shine.

Player Assessments

Your player will be assessed in the overall select player pool at tryouts. The coaches have organized a full slate of engaging, challenging activities for all the players that should provide sufficient information for our coaches. The activities will assess various factors the coaches look for in players that are a good fit for an advanced development program, not simply current aptitude. Assessments are performed on a variety of factors, including:

Skill/Aptitude
Speed of Play
Decision-Making
Athleticism
Coach-ability
Composure
Focus
Responsibility
Attitude
Creativity
Work Rate

On the field, there will be HSA Select staff/volunteers comprised of head coaches and evaluators.

These sessions do allow these experienced coaches/evaluators to see what they need in a very efficient albeit short period of time. That said, tryouts are not exact by any stretch. Players help us and themselves to position themselves most favorably when they attend both sessions.

The Notification/Offer Process

Select team tryouts consist of two try-out sessions. Most of the activity is completed during the two-day tryouts although some players may also be identified after.

Player offers (by email) will be sent no later than 24-48 hours following the conclusion of the last tryout. Additional offers may be given depending on the response of first offers given. 

Team Formation Meeting (and uniform fitting)

The team formation meeting (for players accepting offers) will be held on:

Tuesday, May 25
Location: meeting will be held online
Uniform fitting: TBD

Players and parent/guardian are required to attend this meeting. This meeting will cover information about the HSA Select program, introduce coaches, discuss expectations, and go over the uniform ordering process and player registration. Teams will also meet separately to review team schedule, fees, and volunteer needs. Each player will then get fitted for uniforms and be provided with an order form.

For Parents

Hi Parents - we know having your kids try out for a select program is a big and sometimes scary jump from recreational soccer. Please read the documents and article below to answer some of your questions. The Select Committee will also be available during tryouts for other questions you may have.
