TRYOUT FAQ'S

STL LEGENDS TRYOUT FAQ's

Question

Answer

Can a player be cut?


Do I have to attend all tryouts?

We will do our best to find a developmentally appropriate spot for every player that attends tryouts.

Ideally, yes. The more the coaching staff gets a chance to evaluate your child’s ability, the more likely they are to form an accurate assessment and assign them to the appropriate team. If you can’t make all the sessions please let the age-level coaches know.  Returning Legends Players should make every attempt to attend all tryout sessions, however returning players are guaranteed a roster spot.

When will schedules
and coaching assignments
be posted?


Tryout schedules are already posted HERE.  Coaching assignments will be posted as soon as teams are assembled.


What is the difference between Kick-Arounds and tryouts?


Team coaches will be at all kick-arounds during the weeks leading to tryouts and actual tryouts that begin June 13th, 2021.  It is strongly recommended that players attend both the Pre-Evaluation and the tryouts. Offers can not be made until Sunday June 13th, 2021 according to our governing body MYSA.h


Should parents attend try-outs?


Parents are encouraged to watch the tryout sessions, but do not have to be present.  Tryouts can be a stressful time for some children so if you are new to the club or new to the tryout setting it would be a good idea for parents to be present to support their child.


How soon will I know
if I make the team?


Age group coaches will contact each player and/or family directly or via phone call.  You should know which team your child has made within 24 hours of the last tryout. All players with birth years of our teams will be offered roster spots.


What if I’m out of town and can’t attend the tryouts?


Email [email protected] and we'll get back to you with alternatives.   The Legends club will run tryouts throughout June and will have options for all players.


Can I stay with my team from last year?


Parents can let the coach know that is the player’s preference and that will be taken into considertion.  However, we do want to make sure that your child is on the right team for their competitive level.  We will always try to do what is best for the player's long term development.


Can I play up?


Players are welcome to play up.  The first objective will be to fill the roster spots in your child's age group (team) and then if a player wants to play up a year and it is a good fit for their development to do so we encourage it.  Please note that you would like to play-up when you register for tryouts. Also, please let the staff member working at the registration table that your child will be trying out a year-up as well.


I made the team,
what’s next?


First, you will need to accept your child’s spot on the team by completing the club registration form. The coach or team manager of your team will add you to teamsnap. On teamsnap, you will be able to see when practices are scheduled and fees you will owe. Practices begin the first Monday after Independence Day, July 5th 2021.

How much will it cost to play with STL Legends

Cost will vary team-to-team and age-group to age-group and will also depend on the number of tournaments that the team and coach decide to attend. A sample budget can be found  HERE.


When will I have to pay my first fee?


To secure your child's roster spot the Parent(s) will need to email or otherwise notify the Director of Coaching by accepting the offered roster spot.  Fees will be invoiced and need be paid beginning July 1st, 2021.


How soon will practice begin after try-outs?


Tryouts will continue running through June until teams are full.  Team and age group practices will begin July 5th after the Independence Day Holiday.


What days will my team practice and where?


Practices days and times are dependent on the individual team and coach. However, with the club's unique training method's players are provided with multiple opportunities to make up practices with other teams on different days.  

Currently all practices are held at St. Louis Legends Indoor Soccer Facility.  400 Trade Center Dr. E St. Peters, MO 63376.
