BAYS Tryouts

Tryouts for the 2015-2016 season for U9 - U14 players will occur in late spring (times and locations will be listed below).  Your son must tryout to be considered for a BAYS team (if you have an extenuating circumstance that keeps your child from trying out please contact the appropriate age group coordinator).  Please note that the NYS expectation is that if your child is assigned to a BAYS team that he/she plays in both the Fall AND Spring seasons.  The BAYS high school 9-12 league players do not tryout.  Those teams are formed in the fall and play only in the fall.

Registration is required to be eligible to tryout.  Once registered, your child will receive a tryout time (either 1:30PM, 3:00PM, 4:30PM).  You will receive notice of this tryout time approximately 1 week prior to the tryout date from the appropriate Age Group Coordinator. 

Each tryout time will last approximately one hour.  Players should wear cleats, shinpads, and wear appropriate training gear. The tryouts will consist of a series of scrimmages that allow independent evaluators to assess their level of play.  Our goal is to provide the appropriate team that matches the skill level of the child.  This will give them the best experience learning and playing soccer.  

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your tryout time so that you can sign your child in and we can organize the kids and start on time.

PLEASE NOTE:  All U9 participants will need to attend both tryout dates at their assigned times.

    Due to the large number of players involved, NYS does not offer make-up tryouts. If your child has an unavoidable conflict, please speak with your current coach and Age Group Coordinator.

    Players will be randomly assigned to a tryout session at 1:30, 3:00, or 4:30pm. Notice of the assigned session will go out a week to 5 days before the tryout.  If you know your player has a conflict for a specific time slot please let his Age Group Coordinator know - he will try to assign to a different session.  Requests to change to a different time after notices go out might not be accommodated.

    Incoming U9 players must attend both tryouts on 6/7 and 6/14.

    Tryouts are for the age group the player will be in next fall.  If a player is currently playing on a travel team he will tryout for the next older age group (U14 includes U13 and U14).

    For older players there is a High School 9-12 option.  Link for details. There are also spring U16 and U18/19 options which open registration in the fall with tryouts in the fall.
