Travel Team Tryouts

Quick Link: Registration

President's Letter

Please read this letter from our Club president for an overview of how our tryouts work. 

Important Notes

  • Register in advance if you intend to tryout. Tryout registration is free and helps us plan an effective tryout session.

  • Participation in developmental training is required for U7 players that are interested in trying out for our U8 developmental travel team the following season.

  • All tryouts are held at Burr Intermediate School.

  • All tryout participants are expected to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of each tryout session to confirm their registration and attendance.

  • Each tryout participant will receive a numbered tryout pinny on Day 1.

  • Players are to keep the tryout pinny after Day 1, and return the tryout pinny after Day 2.

  • Participants will not be allowed to wear any clothing issued by a training organization or their current travel team including Commack Soccer game uniforms. Players will be asked to change any such clothing before taking part in the Tryout Session.

  • All participants must have a ball, wear shin guards, cleats, and bring water.

  • Parents, relatives, or friends are to wait in the area near the Burr Concession Stand. No one is allowed near the tryout fields. Medical reasons for being near the tryout fields can be discussed with the Tryout Coordinator on site.

  • In the event of inclement weather, postponements will be announced through the Commack Soccer Website.

  • Rainout dates generally take place the Friday of the participant’s respective tryout week.

Additional Guidelines

You must attend a Commack Soccer pool tryout to be considered for placement on a Commack Soccer Travel Team.

Commack Soccer Pool tryouts are conducted by representatives from our approved training organizations including SUSA & LI United.

Tryouts will be conducted over 2 days for each age group.

All tryouts are “blind” and each player will receive a unique number for the tryout.

All players will be checked in prior to the first day of the tryouts for their age group and assigned a random tryout number. Players are responsible to remember their number!!!

At the end of the 2nd day of tryouts, each player will be “checked out” to make sure all numbers are accounted for and any “duplicate numbers” that may have occurred be clarified BEFORE leaving the field.

The tryout results will be posted on the Commack Soccer website within 48 hours after the conclusion of the tryout for each age group.

After the results are posted, players will have 48 hours to accept/decline the position on the team.  To accept a position, parents must complete the registration and payment process. If registration and payment is not received after 48 hours, the next highest rated player will be offered a spot on the roster and unregistered players WILL LOSE THEIR ROSTER SPOT.

THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS POLICY
THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS ISSUED AFTER REGISTRATION
ONCE COMMITTED TO A TEAM YOU HAVE ACCEPTED A SPOT

The Commack Soccer Travel coordinators assigned to each age group will be responsible for overseeing the above procedure and contacting any players who have not accepted, declined, or registered.

Once the teams are formed at the conclusion of the tryout, parent administrators will be assigned. Anyone interested in becoming a parent administrator, please submit our application prior to tryouts.

IF WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH PARENT ADMINISTRATORS, TEAMS WILL NOT BE FORMED UNLESS THE TRAINER ASSIGNED WISHES TO TAKE ON THAT RESPONSIBILITY AT AN ADDITIONAL EXPENSE ADDED TO THE FEES CHARGED TO THE TEAM DIVIDED EQUALLY AMONG ALL TEAM MEMBERS.

Note, new team names must not duplicate an existing Commack Soccer Travel teams name.

FINALIZED team names, rosters, and coaches information will be submitted to the Commack Soccer Registrar within 7 days after the conclusion of the pool tryouts for the age group.
