AYSO United - Michigan

Tryout Process


TRYOUT PROCESS

AYSO United Michigan is holding open tryouts for all players seeking a unique club soccer experience focused on player development. There will be four locations holding tryouts that include Ada, Byron Center, Caledonia and Hudsonville/Georgetown areas. There is no cost to tryout.  Players receive a complimentary AYSO United shirt just for joining us for tryouts! 

PRE-TRYOUT REGISTRATION 

AYSO United Tryout Registration will open soon. The Pre-Tryout Registration is not mandatory but strongly encouraged. If you did not pre-register, please come early to the tryout to fill out the registration paperwork and waiver form. 

1. Please fill out the online AYSO United Tryout Form
2. Download, print, fill out and sign the AYSO United Waiver Form and bring it with you to tryouts. 

TRYING OUT

Please arrive early prior to the start of the tryout.  This allows each athlete time to relax and clear their emotions before the tryout process begins.  We find this help each player be at their best when not rushing around the day of tryouts.  Also, every player trying out must come prepared with the following: 

  • Signed Waiver Form 

  • Soccer Ball (appropriate size) 

  •  Appropriate tryout attire 

  •  Water 

  •  Shin Guards 

  •  Soccer Cleats 

  •  A Good Attitude

  • Good Work Ethic and a SMILE!  

POST-TRYOUT PROCESS

A player who tries out for AYSO United Michigan will receive a phone call and email from the one of the AYSO United club staff members or coaches letting him/her know the status of being placed on a team within 24 hours. Players/Parents will be contacted in a timely manner after the tryouts to confirm the player has accepted the offer for a spot on the team to get their commitment. In the event the player does not make a team or no team was formed, feedback about the player’s tryout and options will be given. 

WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?

After the last tryout we will form the teams and also finalize the coaching assignments. We have “tentatively slated” coaches to teams prior to tryouts, but we cannot officially assign them until the team is formed. After the teams are formed, players will be given instructions to register and make their first payment. Then the club will set up meetings with teams to go over the program in more depth. 

WHAT COMMITMENT IS REQUIRED?

Tryouts happen once a year as instructed by MSYSA, and when you are asked to join an AYSO United team, we are asking you to play the fall season and spring season. Our expectations are in line with other clubs and we realize it takes time for players to gel together as a team. As well as the time it takes for proper Player Development.  It is for that reason that the commitment is for both Fall and Spring seasons.  Exceptions are limited but would include:  High school half season athletes where Girls play club in fall, Boys play club in spring. 

WHAT PAYMENTS ARE REQUIRED POST TRYOUT?

The fees for the program need to be paid in full once teams are formed.  Each member of the team will receive a welcome email from our Club Registrar once rosters are completed by the Coaching Staff.   

AYSO United does offer other payment plans and arrangements to our members who meet certain criteria.  For more information on those programs contact our Club Registrar.  Thank you for considering AYSO United Michigan as a home for your child to play soccer.  

HOW DO WE ORDER UNIFORM KITS?

Once team rosters are finalized, AYSO United will host a registration event where all new incoming athletes will be fitted for their Uniform kits.  Parents will fill out the registration paperwork and meet other Players, Coaches and Club Staff.  At this even the Kit package each athlete is required to have will be expressed to you.  (I.e. ELITE teams and above may be required to have additional Uniform Kit accessories)  Parents will then receive an email from the Club with a direct AYSO United West Michigan Soccer.com website for each athlete with the ability to order each required item.
