TRYOUTS POSTED FOR FALL 2016 TEAMS

TRYOUT SCHEDULE CHANGES WILL BE PRINTED IN RED FOR THE AGE GROUPS BELOW

TRYOUTS AT Hillside Park Turf Field or Stroney Field which is one just above the turf field

 Abington SC will be holding tryouts for fall competitive teams starting in May.  We are the longest standing youth travel soccer club in Lackawanna County,  with 40 years of providing competitive soccer programs for boys and girls. Please check the birthdates and be sure to try out for your appropriate age group.   If you are interested in trying out for one of the teams and can't make the dates listed, or they are not yet listed, please contact the person listed for that age group or send an email to abtravelsoc@yahoo.com.

TRYOUT DATES WILL BE UPDATED, SO PLEASE CHECK BACK &  MAKE CONTACT WITH THE PERSON LISTED for your age group

Directions to the field ...... please see the Handout section on the left of the page for directions to Hillside Park Turf Field - the Stroney Field is just above the turf field in the park.  Check your age group location.

What to bring to the tryout..... bring a ball, wear shinguards and water

What to do if the weather is questionable on the day of the tryout?.....call or text  the contact person

AGE GROUP CHANGES :  US Youth Soccer and the leagues that are part of US Youth Soccer have changed the age groups effective fall 2016 for the leagues we play in.  We no longer will be using the August 1 through July 31 birthdates, but will now be grouping age groups by callendar year, January 1 through December 31.  This creates some challenges for existing teams, and you will notice that some age groups will tryout with a couple of combinations (such as U18 at 1999 & 2000 and U17 at 2000 and 2001). A player born in 2000 would have the option to tryout for both teams or choose only one to tryout for if this is their preference.  We hope to form single year teams where possible but if existing teams want to stay together there may be combined birth year teams. Age group tryouts are combined for convenience of the coaches forming teams and may be 2 separate teams. Please contact the person listed with any questions..

Players should try to make all tryouts if at all possible.  If you have conflicts, be sure to contact the age group coordinator or contact . If no contact is listed yet, it should be soon.  If not, send an email to abtravelsoc@yahoo.com.
