Tryout and Team Formation Process

2021-2022 Tryout Registration Link

 

Step 2
All new players are recommended to attend a PRIDE SC team training session prior to June 1st.  To schedule attendance during a training session, please contact Mark Casperson (Girls Teams) or Ryan McClay (Boys Teams).  Mark and Ryan will help schedule you at a session with the assistance of the head coach for the age group.  U15-U19 teams are not likely to have open training sessions until after May 17th.  Other age groups will allow players to attend sessions beginning May 3rd but it will be based on the team, age group and coach availability.  New players must attend open tryouts in June if they did not attend a training session. 

Current PRIDE SC players who are currently registered for 2021-2022 tryouts and are in good standing, will be given the opportunity to commit back to a team/age group without the need to attend a traditional “open tryout.”

 

Step 3 (If necessary)
Attend open tryouts on the following dates and times:


U7 (2015) - U12 (2010); U18 (2004) - U19 (2003):
Tuesday, June 1 and Wednesday, June 2; 6:00-7:30pm

U13 (2009) - U17 (2005):  
Monday, June 7 and Tuesday, June  8; 6:00-7:30pm

MAKE UP DATES WILL BE ADDED IF NEEDED

All open tryouts beginning June 1st will be at:
CW Middle School and Walnut Creek Park, 7155 Parkview Drive, Canal Winchester, OH 43110

 

Final Step - Commitment Process:

All current and new players who registered/attended 2021-2022 tryouts will be contacted during the team formation process regarding their team offer.  If you have questions about the specific team, please do not hesitate to ask the director or head coach. 

When a player is offered a spot, they will be asked to either accept or decline the offer as soon as possible – preferably within 48 hours of the offer.   To make this process as efficient as possible for 700+ players, electronic email offers will be the primary way offers are made, most players will not receive a phone call.  Parents are expected to check their email(s) during this process. 
In order to fully accept, players must select “accept” in the registration system, and then click to pay the deposit online.
