SELECT - FALL 2017

Select: Select teams are part of our competitive program and uses a player tryout selection process to find the right set of players to form teams that can compete at the highest possible levels. This does not always mean selection of the best individual players. Skill on the field is definitely an important factor, but other less quantitative factors are considered such as attitude, vision, work-ethic. Teams require different players to perform different roles. There are strikers, midfielders, defenders, and goalkeepers. Within each group you may want one strong/physical player, one very fast player, one player with extreme foot skills, and another player who has strong vision and can read the game as it unfolds. You may want different players to take on the roles of acquisition, distribution, and transportation of the ball.

The purpose of the tryout and the job of the Select Coach, is to incorporate all of these factors and find the right combination of skills, attitudes, and roles to build a competitive team. 

Annual Select team tryouts are in June of each year.  

HSA Select players play in the Western Suburban Soccer League (WSSL).

HURON S.A. DEVELOPMENTAL FALL 2017

League Objectives: For many children soccer is their first experience of team play. Our house program is focused on basics of playing sports for fun and being a good sport. To that end no score is kept and all children receive trophies or awards at the end of the season.Team Composition:Our house recreation league is co-ed from the beginning to end. Teams are determined using the following criteria. Boys and girls are divided so that each team consists of equal gender. Ages are factored in so that no team receives a greater number of older players. Efforts are made to have younger and older players dispersed appropriately; however, parental preferences, requests are met when possible, and only if “fair” teams result along with such requests. Our club does not advocate “stacked” teams, as this is our learning league. Therefore, coach requests may not be honored to eliminate unbalanced teams.Practices:As in any other sport or league, practices are determined by the VOLUNTEER coach. We encourage coaches to provide 3-4 practices before the onset of the season, yet weather and holidays may infringe on this expectation. Since games are played on Saturday mornings the coaches set their practices during the season as they see fit.  

Practice & Games:All house games and practices are played at Washago Pond area at Willow Metropark.  (8) games are played in both fall and spring seasons.  The fall season game schedule traditionally begins the weekend after Labor Day. (8) games are played before the end of October.  Apple fest weekend is avoided for games in the fall as Memorial weekend is in the spring. The spring season usually kicks off in early April and ends mid June.  Registration is for current season only.
