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 2022-2023 soccer year runs from August 1st, 2022 to July 31st, 2023. 

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.
  • All age group levels will have two days for tryouts.  Players should plan to attend both tryout dates.
  • The tryout fee is $25.
  • Neenah Soccer Club will look to create the most competitive teams possible at the high school age group (15U-19U) for both boys and girls. This means we plan to merge and mix age groups to get the most competitive and talented players in those age ranges playing together creating a playing and training environment more akin to high school soccer. This also means when the actual high school teams are in season (boys in the fall and girls in the spring) the club teams will not be playing. We will create as many teams as we can with the players who accept and will plan to have most of the teams play State League.
  • If you are unable to attend the tryout dates listed for your age group please contact Sean Breitzman.

2022-2023 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, Sean Breitzman.

A player may not "play up" more than one year 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 16U and older teams
2004-2007 Boys will tryout together, NSC Coaching staff will build the most competitive teams, regardless of age. We will make as many teams as possible.

2004-2007 Girls will tryout together, NSC Coaching staff will build the most competitive teams, regardless of age. We will make as many teams as possible.

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. 

If any committee member has a personal interest with a player in a specific age group, they recuse themselves.

Team Selection Committee

President – Mike Jones
Vice President - Soccer – Lars Nordang
Classic Director – Josh Acker

Director of Coaching – Sean Breitzman
