Checking In:
Arrive 20-30 minutes prior to your tryout. Each player will be checked in to ensure the proper paperwork (birth certificate, medical release form, etc.) has been submitted to the office staff. Players will be provided a tryout number for the duration of the process. Once a player has received his/her number, they will be directed to the appropriate field space.

We highly encourage parents to stay away from the training space and watch from a distance. The tryout process can be stressful and we want to ensure the players are able to play without any additional stress.

Required Equipment:

  • Shin guards
  • Cleats
  • Soccer Ball (optional but highly recommended)
  • Water bottle (optional but highly recommended)

Required Paperwork for ALL (New) Players:

  • Medical Release Form 
  • Birth Certificate


A signed medical release is required once a year for ALL players to participate in tryouts. If you did not fill one out in the Spring or have a new competitive player then you will need to complete one.  This requirement is non-negotiable. Any player without a signed release will not be allowed to tryout. A medical release can be found and printed here or you may fill one out on-site prior to tryouts.

A birth certificate or US Passport is required for all (new) players.

UUSC Competitive Curriculum

PLAYER DEVELOPMENT


Training to Train
 U10-U14 Age Group

Training sessions: 60-90 minutes long.

Main Focus: Mastering the ball and learning principles of play. Players transition from a "Learning to train" phase into a "Training to Train" phase. 

Tactical Concepts: Principles of Attacking & Principles of Defending. These principles can be very complicated and at this stage of development the focus is creating a foundation based on these principles.

• Principles of Attacking: Penetration, providing support, movement off the ball, width & depth, and improvisation/creativity.
 Principles of Defending: Pressure & cover, delaying, balance/team shape, compactness, control & restraint (not diving in), and counter   attack. 

Session Structure
Stage 1: (Warm up) Games or activities that work on different variations of ball control and team problem solving. 

Stages 2 & 3: (Main activities) Games focus on individual and team problem solving. Players work on mastering activities learned from previous years and expanding on those activities with more complexity. 

Stage 4: Each session should end with small-sided games to goals. Each activity will be building into higher-level variations to improve technical abilities, combinational play, and problem solving. 

 Example of games: 1v1, 2v1, 2v2, 3v2, 4v3, 6v6
 Games can be played to end lines or with multiple goals (4 or 6 goal games)
 Possession games with and without neutral players
 Introducing principles of attacking & defending
 Switching the point of attack, playing out of the back, width & depth
 Pressure and cover, where to force the ball, not diving in.


Training to Compete: U14-16 Age Group

Training to Win: U16 & above Age Group
