Overview of Program:
Part 1: Tryouts (May 2010)
Tryouts will happen the week of May 13. Final times and dates will be announced later.
All players entering Capital FC’s HS Competitive Program must participate in tryouts. CFC Staff Coaches evaluate players based on technical ability, insight into the game (decision making), physical ability, and personality. Coaches meet after each day of tryouts to discuss what they have seen in the players and make decisions based both on ability and potential.
Following the tryouts, an organizational meeting will be held to go over details for the year on Tuesday, May 21, at McCulloch Stadium starting at 7pm.
Part 2: Summer Component (June-August)
Players begin training at least twice per week (90 minute sessions) starting mid-June. Players will continue to train through July.
Capital FC teams will participate in at least three tournaments through the summer – Capital Cup (last weekend of June) and two others (usually July and August). Additionally, most teams will organize friendly games as the coach sees fit for the development of the team.
Teams will be organized to play in at least one showcase tournament to give players who desire to play in college an opportunity to be seen by college coaches.
Part 3: Fall Component (August – beginning of November)
HS Players return to their schools to participate in school soccer programs during this time.
Part 4: Winter/Spring Component (December-April)
Teams begin to train again outside on city turf fields starting in mid-November/early December (depending on field availability). Games for OYSA’s Winter League begin in January/February, concluding with State/President’s/Founder’s Cup play (depending on level of team) in April and the first weekend of May.
Games and training will conclude in April or the first weekend of May, depending on how far each team makes it in their respective tournaments. Players will then be asked to move on to competitive program tryouts for the following year, taking place the second week of May.
