Dear Soccer Players, Coaches and Team Managers,
Tryouts for the 2017/2018 soccer year begin June 19.
This letter contains quite a bit of information, please review carefully. Great Basin Youth Soccer would like to remind you of the Tryout policies so you are fully informed prior to running or attending tryouts this year.
1. Tryouts are held once a year during June and July for all age divisions - U10 through U19. There will not be tryouts in November. Players sign to a team for the seasonal year. The GBYSL transfer policy is included at the end of this message. There are strict rules regarding transfers once a player has committed to a team for the seasonal year.
2. All high school aged players, U15 and above, must tryout at the annual June and July tryouts.
3. Coaches and Clubs may not discuss tryouts with players or parents until June 10th. Once tryouts begin June 19th, Coaches and Clubs may not make an offer to a player during tryouts. The coach or club may begin offering team spots as of June 24th at 8pm.
4. The clubs will be required to submit player registrations by July 14th for U10 through U15 (middle school) teams playing in the GBYSL fall season and for U15 (high school) through U19 teams by September 18th.
5. Failure to register to a team by the established registration dates will be subject to a late registration penalty of double the registration fee. Exceptions will be made to new residents to the northern Nevada area and players with injuries during the tryout period. Injury exceptions will require doctor verification.
All players for the seasonal year 2017/2018 please plan to attend the tryouts beginning June 19 and ending July 9. The tryout information for team tryouts has been posted to the GBYSL website, www.gbysl.org. It is located under the "Competitive" menu tab of the website. In addition, you may locate the individual club tryout information on each club's website. The website addresses are located on the GBYSL website under the Club tab (which is located in the drop down menu under the "HOME" tab).
Best of luck to all players attending tryouts this year and have an enjoyable summer!
