DeMatha Soccer Academy 2020/2021 Tryout Process (U9-U15)


State and local restrictions have limited our ability to hold in-person tryouts this spring. However, we are excited and hopeful about the 2020-2021 soccer season and currently holding tryouts.


2020/2021 Tryout Out Process: 

This spring we will be using our DMSA Tryout Application process in place of in-person tryouts due to continuing health and safety risks associated with Covid-19. 


Any player that is interested in joining one of our teams is asked to fill out the DMSA Tryout Application below. 


Our coaches will review each application and then let the player know if he has been offered a roster spot on a team.

Register with Confidence Policy:

We recognize there is still a lot of uncertainty with the 2020-2021 season. Therefore, we have created our Register with Confidence Policy.

Our Register with Confidence Policy will ensure an account’s player fee will be prorated to reflect different scenarios that may evolve over the summer and fall due to Covid-19. These scenarios and their costs are outlined below in each age specific program overview. 

 

Additionally, our Register with Confidence Policy ensures that an account will not be billed, less a $100 commitment fee due upon acceptance of a roster spot, until we have final confirmation from federal, state, and local government officials that it is safe and permissible to provide modified/full in-person programming.

 

Lastly, if we are not permitted to provide modified or full in-person programming we will provide virtual resources for our players. These resources include:

  • Access to the Techne Futbol Training application 

  • Access to the Teambuildr online strength and conditioning application 

  • Access to the DeMatha Soccer Academy player resource google classroom

  • When you complete the DMSA Tryout Application, there will be a section to indicate his/her past playing experience and a section asking why you are interested in joining our club.
