President's Letter

Each spring, Commack Soccer conducts tryouts for our travel teams. We aim to provide all players a place to play by matching players with a level of play that is a fit with their abilities.

In our continuing effort to improve communication we have posted our Travel Tryout Guidelines and our tryout dates on our website. We have also been communicating through Facebook and Instagram.

The Board would like EVERYONE to understand that we will form as many travel teams as we have a sufficient number of players interested and volunteers available to form these teams.

Below is a brief description of the levels of play we offer.

INTRAMURALS (U7-U10): For those players who do not make a travel team or do not want the commitment of training and traveling to games each week.

DEVELOPMENTAL TRAVEL TEAM (U8): One boys team and one girls, will be formed in June from the pool of players currently participating in the CSL Developmental Program.

TRAVEL TEAMS (U9-U12): Teams are formed from players attending the pool tryouts we conduct in June. Players will be placed on teams based on their evaluation through the tryout process. The number of teams formed will be determined by the CSL based on the number of players attending the tryout for the age group, the skill level of the players in the age group, and the number of parent volunteers willing to become administrators for the teams.

The top two teams selected in these age groups will play and train at a higher level. Players on these teams will be required to devote a higher level of commitment when accepting a spot on these teams. There may also be additional winter training and tournament expenses associated with accepting a roster spot on these teams. We encourage players to accept roster spots on these teams if offered. HOWEVER, ACCEPTING A SPOT ON THESE TEAMS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT, BUT AN INDIVIDUAL CHOICE!

All tryouts for teams playing in U13 or older age groups will be conducted by the individual teams.

Our By-Laws state that “it shall be the object of this organization to foster, promote and advance the cause of junior soccer.”

We as a Board are confident by offering players every option to play at their desired skill and commitment level, we can and will accomplish this task.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we strive to promote youth soccer in Commack.

Sincerely,

Bill Quinan

President
