CITRUS UNITED SOCCER TRY OUTS
We will be setting coaches this week for 2020 / 2021 competitive soccer season we will be contacting players for the teams after MAY 18TH and will have a in person tryout in June
The goal of the competitive program is to help develop each player to his/her fullest potential; as a person and as a soccer player, to provide positive role models for younger players to emulate, to develop highly competitive teams, and to expose CITRUS UNITED players to collegiate and professional opportunities through our various collegiate and professional club partners.
Our competitive program provides a positive environment where players can train under qualified and experienced coaching staff members. Our coaches strive to improve each player through high quality training sessions and more. Our players are able to showcase their talents through relevant and challenging competition against youth soccer teams across Florida and beyond.
The club’s philosophy is to offer the best possible soccer, and personal development for all players, and to provide further growth opportunities to those individuals who have the talent to potentially compete at the collegiate level
Towards the middle of June CUS holds tryouts to select players for our competitive U9-U18 teams. The final number of teams that will be fielded will be determined by the number of players who attend the tryouts and are selected.
For U9 (academy) teams and older, the competitive soccer program represents a one-year commitment that runs similarly to the school calendar. Players are placed on a team through a process that includes evaluated tryouts; an evaluation of skills and abilities AND assessment of the child/family’s commitment to our program. Depending on the amount of players and the level
