All New & Returning Players MUST register for Academy Open House

Registration Deadline: January 13th

Beginning Spring 2019, we are transitioning our previous ‘tryout/evaluation’ process to a more relaxed, player friendly ‘open house/pickup’ environment. We not only hope this causes less stress to the 7-12 year old player, but also create more continuity to keep our teams together for the full year, traveling from August - May minus the brief winter break. 

Returning Fairhope Academy players, your evaluation has been an ongoing process since last August when the soccer year began. Each week whether in training sessions or playing in a game, our Academy coaching staff are continously evaluating each player's soccer abilities and their commitment to their team. A players' placement on the team for the upcoming soccer season has been determined mostly by their overall performance during the previous year’s play. 

Open House & player placements are specifically used to compare returning players to any new players who are attending.  We strongly recommend that players, returning and new, attend  to give themselves the best opportunity to be evaluated alongside all of their peers.

What to Bring to Open House? All players must wear shin guards, soccer cleats, bring a ball & water.  All NEW players MUST bring a copy of their birth certificate.
