To become a member of Santos FC, we invite you to join us for tryouts. Tryouts dates are set by MOSSL and are typically after Memorial Day in late May and early June. Always check our CALENDAR for specific dates and times. Age groups will typically tryout at the same time and it is important that you tryout with your age group if at all possible. Two sessions are held and the player is asked to attend both. We are determining who will be invited to become a member.
Before tryouts you will need to fill out the following form and bring it with you:
Important Information for Tryouts
We ask you to refrain from offering instruction to your child during the tryouts. We want to make this a fun and positive experience for everyone. At the end of tryouts, one of the managing trainers will address parents and answer questions. Roster positions will be offered beginning at 2pm the Sunday after tryouts and continue all day. All teams have a limited number of roster positions available. We commit to contact each child who tries out for a position on a Santos FC team. It is unfair to make some players wait while others delay in making a decision and commitment upon notification. We expect you to give us your commitment upon our phone call to you.
Information regarding cost is passed out at tryouts. You can also email us directly for FEE INFORMATION. A non-refundable $300 deposit is due at the parent meeting. Parent meetings are scheduled shortly after players are extended offers at the Upper Arlington Tremont Library. Check the CALENDAR for particular dates. After the parent meeting, you will have time to order your UNIFORM.
If your child is not offered a position, it does not mean she/he is not a good player, it usually means that we have many good players from which to choose and a limited number of spaces on the team roster. Tryouts are sometimes stressful for everyone involved. Remember it is more important at this age that your child plays on a team where she/he receives good training and plenty of playing time. The best players at age 8 and 9 are sometimes not the best players at the age 14 and 15, since everyone develops at different rates.
UPON ACCEPTANCE to the club, you will complete the forms and turn them in at the parent meeting. It is important that all documents/pictures are turned in at this time. Please be prepared.
