Fall Travel Soccer Evaluations

Dear NASA Parents,

** Players MUST be registered to participate in evaluations.  If you are a club player, please use your specific NASA gotsoccer account and not any other club affiliated gotsoccer account. **

Please read the following message thoroughly and carefully.  In addition, please reference Section 4 of NASA's Travel Policy to understand the process of creating travel teams and the role evaluations play in the process, including the need to attend evaluations.

Fall Registration is now open and player evaluations will take place per the schedule at the bottom of this email based on your child's age group.  The registration link is also located at the bottom of this note.

All players who register will play travel soccer in the fall, presuming there are enough spots.  Please register early to secure a spot on a team.  Your child MUST participate in evaluations for an opportunity to be on a select travel team .  There are at least two select travel teams in each age group.  One all grade team for 5th grade and one all grade team for 6th grade.  The same applies to 7 th and 8 th graders playing in the U14 age group.  Select team players are chosen by the select team coaches.  Players not placed on select travel teams will be placed on travel teams by the travel directors.

Although a player does not need to be evaluated to play travel soccer, we encourage all players to be evaluated so NASA can create teams with players at a similar stage in their soccer development and, in turn, place these teams in groups with opponents at a similar level.

If your child is currently on a select team they must be evaluated for the opportunity to remain on that team.  Being on a select team now is not a guarantee that the player will stay on that team.   Each year players are evaluated and selected to play on the select teams.  Some players develop later and some players peak earlier. 

If your child is currently injured, please let your designated Travel Director know as soon as possible via their e-mails; boystravel@nasoccer.com or girlstravel@nasoccer.com.

Your child MUST be registered in order to be evaluated.  You will receive additional messages about registration but we encourage you to register now using either the individual or family login credentials at the bottom of this email presuming they have not become your club gotsoccer account in which case you will need to create a NEW NASA account in gotsoccer.

IMPORTANT ITEMS TO NOTE FOR EVALUATIONS

  • Please have a copy of your child's birth certificate at check-in so we can verify the DOB used during registration.  We will not be retaining any birth certificates as part of this process.  If any are left behind, NASA will shred them.
  • 5 th and 7 th graders will have pictures (head shots) taken at evaluations.  These are used for the ID cards our league (ECYSA) requires for all players.
  • If your child or children have an August birth date and want to play up with their grade level peers, please contact the registrar about this at registrar@nasoccer.com ; do not change their date of birth on the registration.
  • Arrive in soccer attire with cleats, shin guards, ball and water bottle.
  • NO CLUB attire will be allowed.  Players wearing Club team apparel will NOT be allowed to participate in the evaluations, thus eliminating them for select team consideration.
  • NO team identity attire (team t-shirts, shorts, socks, etc.)
  • BE ON TIME and arrive early!  We have a short amount of time to evaluate a lot of players.

Fall 2016 Registration:  https://www.gotsport.com/asp/application/reg/Default.asp?ProgramID=48323&Type=PLAYER

*Note: The player fees for all travel levels are the same as last year ~ $120 (Early), $160 (Regular) and $210 (Late).  The purpose of the fee is to cover the operating expenses such as field maintenance, equipment costs, developmental programs, MYSA required player insurance, ECYSA required field fees, CDT costs and referee fees.  The player fees assure that NASA is positioned to operate a quality program for our children.  And in keeping with our goal of making this an affordable activity for all children, we offer an early registration discount for those who want to take advantage of it.
