Fall 2020- Spring 2021 TRAVEL TRYOUTS

TRYOUT TRAVEL UPDATE DUE TO COVID-19 Pandemic

Harrison SC Families-

A number of you have asked questions regarding the upcoming 2020-21 seasonal year. It’s still uncertain as to when we can return to play and when, how, or even if tryouts can be held. Under normal circumstances tryouts for the 2020-21 season would have already concluded and the formation of teams would have been complete at this time (mid-May). Since the timeline to register teams for the South Jersey leagues will not be adjusted, we would like to begin the process of registering our players. This way at least we will know how many players there will be in each age group and be able to determine the number of teams we will register for the fall leagues.  We will be working on how best to operate under the circumstances and will provide information on any adjustments to the tryout process as they become clear.

Please register your child(ren) for travel soccer, birth years 2013-2007, by Thursday May 21st,  by clicking here. The fall 2020 travel registration fee, approved by majority at the February 26, 2020 board meeting, of $165 will be due when your child is placed on a team. For returning spring 2020 players there will be a credit for the spring season. At this time we are unsure of the credit amount we will be able to apply given the club’s expenses for the spring season. We will communicate the details as soon as we are able to.

For high school age birth years 2006 and older, your current coach will contact you with details for the 2020-21 seasonal year. Harrison SC high school age teams have a separate registration from our U8 through U14 teams travel teams.

Thank you for your patience and stay safe. We hope to see all the players back on the fields soon when it is safe.

Harrison SC Travel Teams

Harrison Travel soccer is dedicated to player development, healthy competition, and, above all, fun! All children born in 2013- 2007 looking for a more structured program are encouraged to register. Older players (2006 and below, as well as players entering high school) should reach out to the boys and girls travel coordinators for current teams within the older age groups.

Harrison SC Travel registration for the 2020-2021 season is WILL OPEN SHORTLY.  There's a $20 fee for tryouts if registered by April 15th 2020.  If your child is offered a roster spot the $20 tryout fee will be applied to fall registration fees. If your child is not placed on a team or you decline a roster spot the fee is nonrefundable. Walk-up registrations will be accepted, however in addition to the $20 tryout fee there will be a $10 walk-up registration fee. The walk-up fee will not be applied to fall registration fees. Tryouts will be held the week of April 20th. Players are required to attend at least one of the two tryouts within their age group.  They can attend both if they wish and their highest rating will be used for their evaluation (not averaged). If they do not attend either, players are not eligible for the A Team and will only be placed on a team if a roster spot is available.

Harrison SC coaches will be conducting all tryouts and evaluating all the boys and girls for each age group.  Both tryout sessions will be run the same way and the same criteria will be used. The tryout will consist of various technical skills activities and small-sided game play.

Please read below carefully on HSC Tryout Guidelines (mandated by USSF* and NJYS*) so you know how to correctly register your child.

2013 Boys & Girls: The only birth year eligible is 2013 (no 2014 players will be allowed). 2013 players will not be allowed to play up one year.

2012-2007 Boys & Girls: All incoming 2012-2007 players in Fall 2020, are eligible to play up ONE calendar birth year age group. However, it will be required that:

(1) the player MUST attend at least one tryout in his/her calendar birth year age group. Failing to attend one tryout in the player’s birth year age group will result in that player being placed on the lowest rated team in their age group, as long as a roster spot is available.

(2) He/she may attend a second tryout for the age group that is ONE calendar birth year older. Players registering for more than one age group are doing so with the knowledge that the club will place them according to their tryout results. If a player chooses to tryout for an older age group, he/she will be placed on the highest rated team they scored on with the older age team being the tie-breaker. For example, if a 2008 player rates on both the 2008 and 2007 “A” teams, that player will be placed on the 2007 “A” team. However, if a player rates on the 2008 “A” team and the 2007 “B” team, that player will be placed on the 2008 “A” team. As in years past, teams are formed based on tryout ratings and those decisions are final. It is not a player’s choice which team they will be placed on. As a township soccer club our primary focus is making sure as many young travel players as possible have a team in Harrison SC to play for and they are placed according to their current ability. 

(3) If you intend on having your child tryout to play up one calendar year when asked during registering:  Will the player be attending tryouts in birth year +1? select yes
