Competitive Program Informatioin


Grand County Soccer Club offers a competitive, comprehensive program designed to take players to the next level. All competitive players participate in a tryout process where our coaches evaluate and place players according to individual skill level, attitude, and experience.  Players in this program will face a higher level of play and team commitment. Competitive team players are dependent upon their teammates and parents.  With each player and parent fulfilling their obligations to practice, games, potential fundraisers and other necessary duties involved in the participation in the Competitive Soccer Program.

Competitive Soccer Season
U11-U15 Boys and Girls – Fall Season
U19 Girls – Fall Season 

Teams will also compete in one full weekend tournament during the season. 

Tryouts are typically held in the month of May or June.

League games are generally played on Saturdays with occasional games on Sundays. Depending on the Division that a team is placed in games could be solely in the Front Range.  Some Divisions will have home games and those games will be played at the Fraser Valley Sports Complex in Fraser, Colorado. Our Competitive teams compete in the CSA (Colorado Soccer Association) leagues and therefore travel to other clubs in the state is required. 
CSA determines divisional placement and handles the scheduling.

Competitive Uniforms– Complete kits are required and consist of socks, shorts, and two jerseys. Warm-ups, bags and additional gear may be purchased.

Competitive Fees- 

Fees for the 2019 Travel Programs are $320.00 per player.  These fees pay for CSA player insurance, field maintenance, field lining, facilities, professional fees such as, equipment, general and administrative fees.

There will be an additional uniform expense for players needing a new uniform (returning and new)

Fees for one tournament is included with the Program fee.  Additional tournaments the team wishes to compete in (fall or spring) will be the responsibility of the team.  All travel expenses (vehicle expense, hotel rooms, food, etc) are the responsibility of the player.

Team fees and uniform expenses are due promptly when requested by the Soccer Coordinator.  Failure to pay all fees and expenses in a timely manner may result in disciplinary action, but not limited to suspension from the team's activities.  Should you miss a practice, games or training sessions, there is no reduction or refund of fees already paid or owed.

Competitive Program Questions and Answers

What will the format of the tryout look like?

We’ll do a combination of technical exercises, small-sided games, and full-field scrimmages in order to determine the technical ability of all of the players and suitability for either the 9v9 or the 11 v 11 format.  U11 and U12 teams play 9v9 while U13 and up play 11v11.

How will the players be evaluated?

Players will be evaluated on their technical abilities, as well as, their decision making capabilities and physical attributes.

How will the players be grouped?

There will be movement from group to group during the tryout based on each player’s individual performance level.

Do the players need to be at the tryout?

Yes, they do. In the event of a conflict, please tell us in advance that your child may be absent so that we can plan accordingly.

Is there really any need for a tryout?

Yes. While we evaluate players as much as possible throughout the year, the coaches need to make comparisons in our own controlled environment. There are also a number of players new to the club who come to tryouts every year. Players will be selected on merit and not necessarily according to where they have played previously.

When will the teams be formed and when should I expect a phone call?

We will form our rosters as soon as possible during the process so that everyone receives a phone call in a timely fashion.  

Do I have to accept the offer of placement and how long do I have to decide?

Offers are made based on what we deem to be the most appropriate environment for your player’s development in order to reach his/her full potential.  You do not have to accept the offer.  If you need time to think things over, we invite you to do so though you may be given a time frame for an answer since other players’ notification could be pending on your decision.

Parental Involvement at the tryouts

Parents will be asked to sit away from the field during the tryouts. We will not have parents sit by the side of the field as we need to be able to communicate directly with the players without them being distracted.

How many players will there be on each roster?

Roster sizes differ from team to team as we seek to find the most appropriate spot for each player.  Rosters sizes for U11 – U12 are typically 12-13 players with some exceptions. Teams in the U13 – U19 age groups will carry more players due to the 11v11 format, injuries and the higher demands as players get older.

Can my child play multiple sports?

Yes!!! GCSC players may have multiple commitments or play several sports and we feel that well-rounded athletes can contribute significantly to our program.  We will not discourage players from sampling what is out there. Players and parents, alike, should simply communicate with the coach ahead of time and work together to ensure a positive experience for all concerned.
