Quoted from: Norcaldad, January 12th, 2013 18:52  GMT
So for those who have younger kids. How has tryouts been this first morning?

Also, for all of those at different clubs. Describe the style of play your team plays. Please include the age level and maybe the team. Maybe a little of the coaching style.
This might help people trying new clubs out determine which clubs fit their kids.

Might be a bit late as most A team spots are probably offered by end of today with most clubs.  
At PU my boy learned possession style soccer which is seen as the modern game of soccer. Even if this means you might get a goal...longer term kids need to learn to defend under pressure. We are again excited for next season. The new experienced coach promised the same style of soccer. The next u11 boys team will again be very good. Had around 30 boys at both Tryouts. Amazing how much the boys learned in two years.  I think it is expected that some boys not making the team the parents desire will look at Cal Blues or maybe San Juan or other comp option. Just like 2-3 years ago with Placer Blues. Overall the quality at tryout looked very solid. Same to be said for u11 girls.

Eureka Youth Soccer Club will hold competitive tryouts for the U9 - U11 age groups on February 23rd, 24th, and March 2nd, at the same time as the U12 - U14 tryouts
- on February 23rd, 24th, and March 2nd. Location and times will be posted to the website soon.

Please follow this link below to register your child for tryouts:

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/comptryoutregistration

EYSC has traditionally held tryouts for these age groups in late February/early March and the club feels that it does not need to make the dates earlier just to lock-in more players.  The 2012 season just ended and players deserve a break and opportunity to try other sports and activities before starting the next soccer season.

EYSC has always been dedicated to serving the needs of players just entering their first competitive soccer experience.  EYSC offers great training and a high level of competition, but in a low pressure environment that fosters a love for the game of soccer.  The EYSC program is an ideal option for younger players whose families are not ready to commit to the rigors of full-time, year-round soccer.

The model for EYSC's Competitive program is to combine licensed volunteer coaches with paid professional trainers.  This model provides for quality training but at a lower financial commitment. The results speak for themselves as the club has had a number of teams win league championships as well as championships at Association Cup, District Cup and many, many tournaments.

New for 2013, EYSC is now a member of US Club Soccer and a NorCal Premier Member Club with its website listed on the NorCal Club page. This gives EYSC teams the option of playing either in CCSL (where EYSC teams have traditionally played) or NorCal (where Cal Blues and Placer United teams play), depending on what is the best fit for each team.  

Player development is a major focus of the EYSC and the club will be offering a curriculum of training clinics throughout the upcoming season.

In the near term, the first clinic is a four week drop-in training program to help players shake off the rust and get ready for tryouts.  The clinics will start the week of January 28th.  Look for more details and instructions on how to register around mid-January on the EYSC website.

Sorry this is late.  The Blues had about 30 U9 girls show up and I know there was another dozen or so registered that didn't make Friday night.  I wasn't watching the boys as closely but the numbers were equal or higher.  Saturday the girls turnout was smaller but I suspect that's because some 'offered' didn't return or were looking elsewhere.

It's our first season but I was impressed with the preparation and structure.  I have no frame of reference (with PU or San Juan) but played and coached much of my lifetime and think (so far) it's a positive experience.  Then again... I haven't written a check yet.  

I will add that if you're considering Blues, you'd better hurry.  Don't wait until next weekend because I think, after tonight's tryout, rosters will be snug.  I'd imagine an elite player finds room but marginal selections will probably be too late.  As for the coaching, some were very personable and others were busy with clipboards.  Emphasis was on multiple 'touches' of the ball, one one one drills, two on two drills and some scrimmaging.  Pretty balanced, in my opinion.  

Finally... ******* it was cold this week!!!    
It needs to be about soccer.

We registered for u9G Blues tryouts but didn't attend.  I have to say I was VERY impressed with the continued communication from Blues.  Over the weekend, we got an email saying how many spots were left to be filled on the two teams, reminding us of the remaining try outs and encouraging us to attend.  Very nice.  

Boca had 20-25 (I think?) for U9 girls, and 45+ for U11 girls.  In U11, they are fielding two comp teams (is that a first for them?) and at least one silver team.

A quick note for the u12-u14s and up. 49er United (Auburn) is putting on weekly Futsal clinics broken out by age group/gender. Clinics are a great way to prep for the tyrouts and keep your foot on the ball if your teams season is over. Clinics are open to all players and the cost is very reasonable ($55-$90 per player for the entire 8 week session). Only a few slots are left from what I hear.  

http://49erunitedsoccer.com/ and scroll down to Futsal section. Or copy and paste the link below into your browser.

Editing my own post... it appears the U9 boys and U10 girls tryouts for Cal Blues are already closed.  If you fall into another category, better hurry!!!!!

Gryphons '03 Girls (Current U9, born 8/1/03-7/31/04) age group is holding a tryout session on Saturday January 19 from 4:30 - 5:30.
Location: Hillsdale High School Football Field  
Alameda de las Pulgas and 31st in San Mateo

In the fall, GSC fielded teams in Gold, Silver, and Bronze in U9 Norcal. GSC 03G Red made it to the State Top 8 in the Norcal State Cup.  

This is a great group of girls with some fantastic coaches. The age group has fully implemented the Fiorentina curriculum with its emphasis on psychomotor, agility, coordination, footwork, etc. At this age it is all about developing skills and athleticism. Definitely an emphasis on possession, passing, etc. as they get older. The head coach for 03G is Nick Dye. I can't believe how much my daughter has learned from him already.

Andres Deza (Coach of the top ranked De Anza Force 98 ECNL team, which started out as a Gryphons team) is GSC's Director of Coaching, so for people on this board, that should tell you everything you need to know about the style of play that is taught at GSC. As a bonus, our girls often practice at the same time they do, so we get to marvel at the very best soccer playing girls around!

This team currently has girls coming from San Francisco to Los Altos. If you've got a U9 girl and are anywhere near the Peninsula, you should definitely bring her out.
