Select Tryouts

ATTENTION VSA FAMILIES: 
Any player who was registered with VSA during 2019-2020 in any program can have the $25 tryout registration fee waived.
We communicated a coupon code to all members on Tuesday, May 26th at 9am for this purpose.
The code is good for one tryout registration, but if you need more, just email Bre.
If you cannot find that email and code, please email our Director of Member Services, Bre Haberl-Kellogg.

As a result of the return to play date (July 6th) and phased-in conditions, the “tryouts” process many clubs hold for 11U-19U age groups in June will be placed by an alternate process called “Team Selection.”

There are no conditions or timelines under which tryouts or anything resembling a tryout will be allowed for the Fall 2020 season.  This includes (but not limited to) a request for or submission of anything virtually or via video to/from a player.

Registration Listing

2020-2021 VSA Select

Select soccer is for players who wish to be in a more structured environment with players of similar commitment levels, technical, and/or physical abilities.
 
June 17th is the invite to play date (formerly known as bid day) for all age groups (2010 {11U} - 2002 {19U}) and both genders.
 
Tryout procedure dictates that you only have 12 hours to respond (8:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M.). 
 
All teams are coached by the VSA Professional Coaching staff. Coaching assignments are announced at tryouts. All professional coaches have experience playing and/or coaching soccer at a high level and an emphasis is placed on continuing education throughout the coaches’ tenure with our club.
 
In-Person Training - 3 times a week in the Fall and Spring and ~9-10 sessions in the winter between the beginning of January through the beginning of March
  • Seasons
  • Fall                           Early August through mid-November
  • Winter                         January through mid-March
  • Spring/Summer               Late March through late June

Virtual Training - If the situation merits and we are unable to train in person we will continue to train virtually until the restrictions are lifted or that specific season comes to an end. We also understand that virtual training is not like in-person training however we do feel that the players can receive the same value, which is laid out below:
 
Fall & Spring (Training Sessions)
  • 2 - 30-minute sessions a per week with your training group / team
  • 1 - 30-minute player meeting each week
  • 1 - 30-minute individual (1:1) training session every 2 weeks (twice a month)
 
Winter (Training Sessions)
  • 1 - 30-minute sessions a per week with your training group / team
  • 1 - 30-minute player meeting each week
  • 1 - 30-minute individual (1:1) training session every month (once a month)
 
Games: ISL games* on weekends versus other select teams from Iowa and possibly Nebraska; 2-4 tournaments (usually in-state with a stronger likelihood of out-of-state travel for older teams) per season. Some teams may participate in NPL as they get older and/or reach higher levels of team success.
 
Travel: Most league games take place in the metro area with some travel requirements taking teams to larger neighboring cities (for example, Cedar Rapids) within the state. No overnight accommodations are necessary for league games. Travel to out-of-town tournaments generally requires a minimum one-night stay.
 
Fees for Tournaments: For this year, all tournament fees are not included in the annual fee. We will collect for tournaments on a pay as we go system. If you accept a roster spot, then you must pay before you attend. If you decommit then you may still be charged for attendance and could be charged a cancellation fee. Same goes for NPL and for the winter indoor league
