Cranford Soccer Club

Helping foster the enhancement and development of soccer for Cranford residents of all ages and abilities

Overview

Registration is now open for the U9-U14 travel teams for the fall 2021/spring 2022 season. The tryout fee will be $20 per player. The available registration should be showing up in your child’s account at cranfordsoccer.com. See tryout dates below! (Please note that travel tryouts for high school ages (U16-U19) will be held in November 2021 for birth years 2007 and older for the Spring 2022 season.  The High School Travel Season is spring only.)

The details below will help you understand the tryout process and give you the tryout dates for each age group. Age groups are determined by the player's birth year. If you still have questions after reviewing, please contact Britt Hamblin, Travel VP, at [email protected].

PLANNED TRYOUT FORMAT
Our goal is to have two or more teams set up for each age group for both boys and girls. The number of teams ultimately depends on the volume of kids at tryouts, which is why we encourage every family with a desire to try travel to come out to the tryouts. All players whether new or returning must tryout each and every year. 

We have two tryouts for every age group that consist of the following formats, and we strongly urge every child who comes out to attend both tryouts:60-90 minute sessions depending on group tryout size (planned format: skill-based / small-sided scrimmages / 7v7 or 8v8 scrimmages).

EVALUATIONS
Travel tryouts are run by USA Sports Group whose trainers evaluate and rank the players during each tryout. We feel it is very important that all scoring is handled by USA Sports Group so everything is done by a neutral party. At the conclusion of the two tryouts, USA submits their evaluations to us, which is used to form teams in conjunction with trainer and coach seasonal evaluations. The best score is kept across the two tryouts, which is why we urge all kids to attend both tryout sessions. It is important that these scores are not published outside of the board and coaches. These USA scores are also not discussed externally with any parent.

SCHEDULE AND LOCATIONS
The TRYOUT DATES/TIMES/LOCATIONS for each age group are below and SUBJECT TO CHANGE!  We always do our best to coordinate with other Cranford sports and activities to avoid conflicts with existing game schedules and activities.
