Premier Team Formation

USA Premier Team Formation for 2020/21

USA Soccer Club welcomes all soccer athletes who want to play Premier Fall 2020 and/or Spring 2021!  

This year we are supporting Premier Teams at the following levels:

U19 Girls - Coach Jason Hunter
U15 Boys - Coach Wade Schuemann
U15 Girls - Coach Kirk Sautter
U14 Girls - Coach Jim Theis
U13 Boys - Coach Juan-Elias Gonzales

If you have questions about joining the team, please contact Wade Schuemann, the USA Directory of Coach Development at [email protected]

In continued response to the COVID-19 circumstances, we will not be holding 'normal' open tryouts for the 2020/2021 competition year. Teams will be organized based on players that register for 'tryouts' through this website AND the GVSA website. Returning players will be extended roster spots on June 1st. Players that are new to USA will be extended roster spots on June 13 for premier teams.

In the end, USA will stay committed to our mission of "in the best interest of the kids". We will do everything in our effort to create teams that are competitive and poised for strong development. We will absolutely ensure their safety. In the end, we will all continue to work together as families, coaches, and administrators to achieve the best that we can. If you have any questions about the Club or the process for joining please email: [email protected]


GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Starting things out right for next year starts with getting our teams organized and our players registered in a timely manner.  Please stay posted for emails and website posts from coaches and club staff.  Please respond to the requests for information and action items within the given deadlines.  This odd 'tryout' season demands short deadlines in order to get organized and ultimately back on the field as soon as possible. 
  • To help ease financial strains, we are keeping the same fee structure as last year with zero increases! The table with the age group/team fees is posted on the Club website.  Remember, if you chose to have your Spring Season Refund applied to next year, the Club fees will be further reduced by that amount.
  • To further help financially, we are going to keep our uniforms for another year! This year was to be a new uniform year, but we will be pushing that off until the 2021/22 year.  Uniform pieces (and full kits) should be available for those that 'sized out' of their old uniforms and for new players.  Availability may be limited from the manufacture but we will work through that as we face it ... we felt the savings is worth the potential challenges.

ACTION ITEM  2) BY SUNDAY, JUNE 14, go to the GVSA website at www.gvsoccer.org and register your player for ' tryouts'.  Yes, we know there are no tryouts but this is the first official step within the league for being on a team.  Again, every player that wants to play USA Soccer next year must complete this step.

  • go to www.gvsoccer.org.
  • locate the "Tryout Registration" link in the middle of the home page

Over the course of the next several days after we get your information (after the 5/18 deadline), the coaches and club operations staff will start the process of team formation.  Coaches from each age group will meet together (via online meetings) to organize teams based on the 'return commitments' made by each USA family.  ON MONDAY, JUNE 1, COACHES WILL CONTACT FAMILIES TO EXTEND OFFERS FOR THE 2020/21 COMPETITION YEAR!  Because communication will be flowing quickly, the offers for most players may be by email rather than phone calls.  Once you get an offer for your player there are a few more steps needed to make it all official for the 2020/21 season.  Beyond these steps, the next team formation functions will be the inclusion of players that are currently not part of USA.  This will be completed on Saturday, June 13.

Not having tryouts will create team formation complexities.  Without tryouts to see returning and new players together at the same time (and with the added challenge of the timing gap between the offers for returning players and those to new players), coaches will be in a position of forming teams without essential information.  As such, the teams organized for the June 1 offers are likely to be partially formed.  This will allow coaches the necessary flexibility to add new players or adjust the 6/1 rosters. 
Although the need for roster adjustments will certainly be unsettling, it may be essential to ensure that each player is on a team to give them best opportunity to develop and grow.  If roster adjustments are found to beneficial or necessary, it may be possible to have this completed based on players actually working out together as an age group.  These age group workouts will likely occur after June 16 (based on compliance with league directives and state association guidelines) in small groups.  The workouts will give age group coaches a chance to physically see the players individually and as small groups. This will provide the essential information this was lost without tryouts.
