Select

Concord AYSO's Select Program offers an opportunity for enthusiastic and motivated players from our 10U-14U Fall Program a more competitive but still recreational opportunity to play more soccer.

Players need to try-out for Select. Player are then chosen, teams formed, and announced in November. Training sessions typically start the first week of December. The Select program game schedule runs from January through early June, including participation in tournaments. Some travel maybe involved.

PARTICIPATION
All eligible players (10U and up) are encouraged to apply/try-out. Please note that to be eligible for the Select program a player must be enrolled in the current Fall Core program and must have participated in at least 50% of our fall team games. You may only participate in Select in the same division that you participated in during the Fall Core program.

The number of teams formed in each division varies from year to year. As a rule, there is one Select team for every four Fall Core program teams in each division. Select teams will travel more than fall teams, as the region could play teams from Davis, American Canyon, and Manteca, as well as Winters, Capay, and Antelope (possibly others - this varies from year to year).

A higher level of commitment is expected from both the players AND the parents. Select is for enthusiastic and motivated players, for the purposes of player development. A player is expected to regularly attend training sessions and games. Parents are also expected to participate in league organization, particularly in the running of the Concord Cup (mid May) to which Concord AYSO is a Host.

REGISTRATION
Try-outs are held in early October. For interested players, applications for the Select Season typically open in mid-September. If interested, you must log into your Blue Sombrero account and click on the Select Try-out program button.

FEES
Select is a self-funded program. The fees collected by each team offsets the cost of uniform kits (two jerseys, shorts, and socks), field rental fees (including training session under lights) and other incidental expenses. Players are expected to participate in several tournaments with the actual number based on the coach's preference and scheduling requirements. You can expect to participate in anywhere from 4-6 tournaments. The tournament registration costs will vary, but can run anywhere from $45-$60 per player per tournament. You will need to account for other incidental travelling costs such as gas, food, and lodging depending on the location of the tournament. Team fund-raising / sponsorship requests are encouraged.

Note: There are no scholarships offered for the Select season as this is an optional offering.
