2020-2021 Emerald City FC Tryouts (Placement)

This is for boys with birth year 2006 through 2010, and girls with birth year 2002 through 2010. High School boys already had tryouts.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak this year, our tryout and team placement process will be much different from previous years:

  • Step 1: Register for Placement. Existing and new players can Register for Placement until April 30, 2020. During this time, existing and new players need to register with the club in their age group by birth year in order to be considered for placement on a team for the 2020-21 playing year. No fee will be asked for in order to register for placement. The registration link is HERE. Please follow it to the year the prospective player was born and register accordingly. If you are new to ECFC, you may need to create a new TeamSnap account.
  • Step 2: Discussion and Placement. Next, the directors and coaching staff will work together to discuss players and place players on teams. New players to the club will be tentatively placed in order to be evaluated and placed accordingly once we begin play.
  • Step 3: Roster Spot Offers.During this phase, coaches of assigned teams will call each registered player to offer an ECFC team roster spot to them, just as is done after a tryout process.
  • Step 4: Register for Team. We will send more communication on this when the time comes. After a player accepts an offer, they will then need to register (with a new link provided) for the specific team they are invited to join. Upon registering for a specific team, there will be a $200 registration fee. There will be no other mandatory payments required until later when the season is formalized.

Please email manager@emeraldcityfc.org if you have any questions.
