Travel Team Tryouts

FUSC holds tryouts for 3rd - 8th graders during May/June for the next soccer year. The typical first-time player will be in the Spring of their 2nd grade year when they tryout for 3rd grade.  Previous placement on a FUSC (or other) travel team does not guarantee placement in subsequent years. If a player is ill or injured and cannot attend tryouts, a note needs to be forwarded to the Boys or Girls Director or the FUSC Soccer Board prior to the scheduled tryout. Players not attending tryouts due to documented injury or illness will receive appropriate consideration for a travel team.  There is no cost or fee associated with trying out for a travel team; however, players should be registered and paid for the fall season by May 31st.

All players entering 5th - 8th grades should attend tryouts to secure a spot on a team because FUSC does not have an in-town (intramural) league for these grade groups.  A player's grade in Fall is the determinant for placement.

Travel Team Selection Process

  • FUSC 2019/2020 Travel Tryout Process

    Number of Tryouts

    • Grade 3-6: There are 2 evaluation days. All players are encouraged to attend both tryouts.

    • Grade 7-8: There are 3 evaluation days for Grade 7-8 due to the large number of players and move back to dual grade from single grade.  All players are encourage to attend at least two of the tryouts.

    Tryout Process

    • For each tryout, every player will be provide a number to wear.

    • The first tryout consists of small side games.

    • The second tryout (and third for Grade 7/8) consists of full field scrimmages.


    Player Evaluation

    • All players are evaluated using Mass Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) criteria.

    • Evaluators score players (from 1-4) based on: tactics, technical ability and athleticism.

    • These scores are combined to rank all players

    Player Placement Process

    • FUSC Evaluation Committees for each age group are made up of the Boy's or Girl's Director, the FUSC Playing Age Director, FUSC Board approved Travel Coaches for the upcoming year, and a member of the FUSC Board of Directors.

    • After the first tryout, players with similar skills are grouped together for the next tryout.

    • During the next tryout, evaluators assess player placement and look for players who should be moved between fields.

    • After the 2nd (Grade 3-6) and 3rd (Grade 7-8) tryouts, the evaluation committee meets to review every player and place them on an appropriate travel team.

    Coaches Role in Travel Team Placement Process

    • During the player team placement process, two other inputs are included: (1) player evaluations from current coaches; (2) observation of games during the regular season.

    • Coaches are an important part of the evaluation committee; however, they do NOT decide who is placed on which team.

    • The FUSC Evaluation Committees discuss and reach consensus on player team placement.

    • Travel coaches are assigned to a team AFTER the player selection process concludes. .

    If there are any questions about the tryout process, please contact the FUSC Girls Director or Boys Director
  • Travel Team Tryouts

    Travel team tryouts for the Fall 2019/Spring 2020 season will be held in May/June.  Tryout information, directions, and the schedule will be posted here in Spring.
