Tryout Information

Neenah Soccer Club tryouts will be held in June for our competitive (11U-19U) teams.  The tryout window is established by WYSA.  The 2021-2022 soccer year runs from August 1st, 2021 to July 31st, 2022. 

Tryout Information:

  • The age group for your child to tryout for is based on a his/her birth year.
  • Players are expected to tryout at their age group level, but may also tryout an age group above.
  • All age group levels will have two days for tryouts.  Players should plan to attend both tryout dates.
  • The tryout fee is $25.  If you sign up to tryout at more than one age level you will be charged for both age groups.  Please contact Mandy Fleege for a refund for one of your tryout fees.
  • If you are unable to attend the tryout dates listed for your age group please contact Cesar Rizzo.

2021-2022 Classic Tryout Policy

11U-19U
Tryouts will be conducted by the Director of Coaching along with team and age group coaches and club personnel. There will be two days of tryouts for each age group. The dates for each age group tryout are listed above.

Players may start checking in 30 minutes before the evaluation is scheduled to begin and will be assigned reversible numbered pinnies as they arrive.

During the tryouts, players will participate in small group activities as well as an on-field scrimmage. Parents may observe the evaluations from a distance. During the evaluations, they should not interact with the players or evaluators in any way.

If the player is interested in goalkeeping, please notify staff at tryout check-in.

In the event that a tryout is cancelled due to inclement weather, the make-up time for that tryout will be announced.  

Player’s equipment for tryouts should include a pair of shorts, a white t-shirt, soccer shoes, shin guards, a properly inflated and sized ball with their name on it, and a personalized water bottle. (To avoid bias, we ask that they not wear their current uniforms – players will be identified by number during the evaluation.)

If you have questions about our tryout process please contact our DOC, Cesar Rizzo.

Player Age Eligibility

To be eligible to participate in tryouts for a classic team, a player must meet the following age requirements:

Age Group

Birth Year

11U

2011/2012

12U

2010

13U

2009

14U

16U

17U

2005

18/19U

2004/2003

Players in the 10U and 11U age groups are eligible to try out for the 11U age group teams. NSC strongly recommends that players trying out for 11U have played at least one season of 9/10U Recreational soccer or have participated in the 10U Academy program prior to trying out for the 11U age group.  

NSC Policy for Playing Up an Age Group for 11U-14U
A player may not "play up" more than two years above his or her actual age group.  A player must score in the top 25% of an older age group in order to play up along with the Director of Coaching assessment and recommendation.  Exceptions may be made to evenly distribute players between certain age groups in order to maximize the number of teams the club is able to form at each age group.

NSC Policy for Playing Up an Age Group for 15U and older
A player may "play up" based on their skill. There is not a limit on how many years a player can play up, but the general guideline is that a player must be in the top 50% of the age group they are trying to “play up”.  (Minor exceptions may be made to evenly distribute players between certain age groups in order to maximize the number of teams the club is able to form at each age group.)

Registration Process

Online registration is now open!

Team Selection Process

Every effort will be made to ensure there is no conflict of interest during evaluations. Evaluators and members of the Team Selection Committee will not participate in player evaluations if they have a child or coach a team in that age group.

Players will be evaluated by the Director of Coaching, age group Master Coaches and team coaches.  The coaches will meet with the Team Selection Committee to determine the team rosters. 

The Team Selection Committee consists of the Club President, Vice Presidents, Classic Director and Director of Coaching. If any committee member has a personal interest with a player in a specific age group, they recuse themselves. A replacement will be determined by the Board of Directors as a suitable replacement.

Team Selection Committee
President – Mike Jones
Vice President - Soccer– Lars Nordang
Classic Director – Josh Acker
Director of Coaching- Cesar Rizzo
