2019-2020 TRAVEL TEAM TRYOUTS
NON-RESIDENTS ARE WELCOME IN ALL AMHERST SOCCER PROGRAMS.
TRAVEL TRYOUT/PLACEMENT SCHEDULE - All teams will have tryouts on either Saturday June 22 or Sunday June 23 for the first session. Additionally, we will run joint tryouts with Empire United, our premier club partner on Monday, Jun 24 thru Thursday June 27 in the evenings. All tryouts will take place at the North French Soccer Complex, 1699 North French Road, Getzville, NY. YOU MUST REGISTER ONLINE AND PAY THE TRYOUT FEE BEFORE PARTICIPATING. You can be considered for Amherst or Empire teams by registering for ASA and attending the weeknight sessions. Just indicate if you want to be considered for moving up to premier level soccer when you check in that day. We will have information about all programs with estimates of costs and committment at tryouts. See the list, attend both for the best chance of being selected. 2010/2011/2012 will have one tryout at this time and we will schedule more if needed.
Teams will be formed by August 2019 and start practicing indoors in November and be together until August 2020.
A $150 deposit will be required within one week of notification of placement on a team with the balance due in equal payments in October and November. Please mark your calendars.
If you are a returning ASA travel player, these sessions are a supplement to the information from prior year play and coach evaluations and players are not placed solely by performance for a few hours on these days. Information related to ability, attendance, attitude, and interest is considered. We will have player evaluations from current coaches, Director of Coaching and coaching staff from the current travel season (8-10 individual assessements) and approximately 85% of the evaluation will be based upon this knowledge. For those that have not played in the past, attending these sessions is very important.
Please review the FAQ for important information about our process.
