Tryout FAQs

 

Q: Do I need to register for pre-tryouts and/or tryouts if I already play for OPSC?

A: Yes, all players, both OPSC and non-OPSC players need to register.

 

Q: Why are pre-tryouts only one day?

A: We don’t want costs to be a factor in if you should come or not, plus the time commitment from parents.

 

Q: What should my player bring to tryouts?

A: Players should come ready to play for one hour with soccer cleats, shin guards and long socks. Please bring plenty of water, as it can get hot on turf. A soccer ball is not needed, soccer balls will be provided by the club.

 

Q: Where are tryouts?

A: Friday, Saturday and Sunday June 8-10, 2018 will be at Shawnee Mission East High School (7500 Mission Rd, Prairie Village, KS 66208).

 

Q: What happens if there is bad weather?

A: We will notify anyone registered for tryouts by email. We will also post updates on our Facebook page- facebook.com/ OverlandParkSoccerClub. If tryouts are delayed or need to be rescheduled, we will send out an email and post on Facebook.

 

Q: When will I find out if my son/daughter has made a team?

A: Coaches will begin to offer positions on their team starting immediately after the first day of tryouts. The top ranked team will offer positions first and so forth. With a lot of teams within an age group can take a while as teams get formed. For some teams this might happen until the last day of tryouts. OPSC will make every effort that your son/daughter gets placed on a team. There can be times when there are not enough players to form a team. Players selected by a coach will receive details from the coach or team manager on how to register.

 

Q: Who do I contact if I have questions?

A: Please email the director of coaching at timc@opsoccerclub.org or reach out to our office manager at info@opsoccerclub.org or text/call 913.280.5645.
