For the 2nd year the NSSA U9/10 competitive program will be divided into two seasons - Fall/early Winter 2019 and Winter/Spring/Summer 2020.
- Tryouts in August 2019 will be for the Fall 2019 season which will include league play in September and October and training through mid-January. Once your player is placed on a team in August, the commitment is for the Fall 2019 season and the fees are set accordingly.
- A second tryout will be held in February for the 2020 (winter-summer) season. After the second tryout, teams may be adjusted and a new registration will be required.

Team placement petition process is as follows: Players that are unable to attend tryouts must still complete the Tryout Registration to indicate that they wish to petition for a roster spot and pay the non-refundable Tryout/Team Placement Fee.
Team placement Via Petition
For current NSSA players: The petition does not guarantee a position on a specific team rather it alerts the Director of Coaching that even though your child was not at tryouts they are still interested in playing for NSSA. Players will be placed on a team based on their ability level. No player is guaranteed a roster spot on a team.
If you are missing tryouts you must complete this MISSING TRYOUTS FORM.
All players requesting to play-up must submit this PLAY-UP REQUEST FORM.
If approved, players must attend Day 1 & 2 of the age group trying out up for and Day 2 of their actual age group Being approved to try-out up an age group does not guarantee placement within this age group.
Note: If circumstances require, after theEvaluation Process is complete and prior to the next annual tryout, players may be moved/added as needed at the discretion of the Director of Coaching. A formal try-out does not need to take place for a player to be added to a team and the player(s) added may or may not have attended the annual try-‐out.
Directors of Coaching
NSSA owns all team designations, which include (Gold, Maroon, Premier, C1, C2, and C3). NSSA’s Directors of Coaching determine the number of teams that an age and gender group can support based on player ability levels manifested through the tryout process.
The Directors of Coaching are responsible for leading the on‐field tryout evaluation process. Tryout format is at the discretion of the Directors of Coaching.
Players may be asked to compete against a group of their peers in small-sided games to evaluate them on various abilities, such as: first touch, passing and receiving, vision, movement on and off the ball, and spatial awareness. Each player will be evaluated based on how they perform in varying competitive environments with varying levels of players.
There is an annual tryout fee for all players participating in the tryout process. This fee assists in compensating third‐party evaluators, tryout uniforms, administrative/operational costs, and facility rental.
We are currently accepting applications for the 2019-2020 Competitive Season.
