SPRING SELECT & ALL STARS
Spring Select and All Star coaches will select the strongest players from the region who really want to play soccer and will make a commitment to the team for the duration of the spring season. Spring Select and All Star teams will work together and play tournaments from January or February until May or June. Selected players from divisions U10 and above, who have met our attendance standards for the Fall Season and intend to continue with us for the following Fall, are eligible to participate.
(Upper Division Spring teams must wait until the end of the high school season to begin their spring tournaments). We encourage as many teams as there are qualified coaches and committed players.
The Turkey Tournament take place over Thanksgiving weekend. 10U players and above are eligible to participate. All teams have games on Friday and Saturday; some also have games on Sunday.
Turkey Tournament players will be selected at the end of October and the teams will be announced in the first week of November. Turkey team coaches will select players from the Fall Skills/Scrimmage (APO) program. The children of our most active volunteers will be given special consideration. Participation in the APO Program is not a free pass to a Turkey, All Star or Spring team. Likewise, players who have not participated in APO Program are still eligible to play in the tournaments. Selection Criteria.
Turkey Team Practices:
Practices will run through the month of November until Thanksgiving weekend. There will usually be one practice on a weeknight and a scrimmage or practice on Sunday. But this will depend on the coach’s availability. Regular season team practices and games take precedence.
