2023-24 FC Montco Travel Team Tryouts

Player Evaluation Process for 2023-24 Season

FC Montco is now entering the second year of a progressive, player-centered approach that allows for extended evaluation over several sessions, instead of just one or two “tryout dates” or “ID sessions.”  These sessions are led by our professional training staff with a format similar to our year-round training program.  These sessions allow for time for developing skills and game-based drills; most sessions conclude with a scrimmage to reinforce key concepts, yet allow for creativity and fun.  

At FC Montco, we feel that players shine their brightest when they feel comfortable in their surroundings.  The best way to assess a player’s development is to observe them in an environment that is as low-pressure as possible.  Feedback from parents and players last year was overwhelmingly positive, affirming our belief in this approach.  Compared to a traditional tryout process, the benefits of this approach include:

  • Removing the “pressure to perform” over just one or two hours in a traditional tryout setting
  • Letting new players get a feel for the trainers, coaches, and team (and vice versa)
  • Providing opportunities to join the team for additional games and practices, if appropriate
  • Aiding in finding the best level and team in which your child can develop next season

How to Register for Evaluation

All NEW Players are Required to Complete our PLAYER INTEREST FORM.

Current players do not need to submit the player interest form (but they should register) as they have been under constant evaluation during their season (via academy, matches, etc).

Registration is open as off January 30th

Registration for evaluations, with a nominal fee, is required for BOTH new and returning players.

After registering, new players can join their team in early February through April, allowing for flexibility in attending multiple sessions over approximately 8 weeks. Team invitations are sent once rosters are determined in early to mid-April. If you have any questions about the evaluation process or our club philosophy, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly (see age group coordinators below).

Since roster formation will be finalized by the April time-frame, players will have plenty of time to make alternate arrangements should they not receive invitations to return to FC Montco or their team of preference for the 2023-24 season.
