Tryout Registration

Hello NPSC Families:

NPSC is always looking at ways in which we can provide a more enjoyable experience for our players while we continue to foster their development. In recent years we have required all our coaches to earn their New Jersey Youth Soccer (NJYS) F license, revamped our 1st and 2nd grade program to model the best practices of NJYS, US Soccer and the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), and changed our tryout methods so that players are assessed on the hard work and commitment they make over an entire season.

For the coming year, we want to institute another change that we believe will positively impact the development and enjoyment of our players. We will try to field as many teams as possible in the Mid-New Jersey Youth Soccer Association (MNJYSA) league. Two of the main reasons for this change are:

  1. In order to have players of ALL abilities flourish, we have adopted the well-researched “Ability-Based” philosophy of the NSCAA. The recreational teams that we have entered into the InterCounty Youth Soccer League (ICYSL) have suffered from ICYSL’s flighting process for years. Despite the club’s best efforts, many teams do not have their flights adjusted with proper diligence and frequency. Therefore, teams will have wildly fluctuating game experiences. Many teams can win 6-0 one week and lose 0-6 the next. Likewise many teams have finished 0-10 in one season and have not had a proper adjustment the next. In an ideal situation, every game should be close and teams that are “flighted” properly will have .500 records. The MNJYSA, while not perfect, makes a greater effort to place teams in appropriate flights. Therefore, the games are competitive regardless of a team’s level and the players have a more enjoyable/developmental experience. Please watch this presentation to learn more about the ability-based format.
  2. Over the past decade there has been a movement in US Soccer towards Small-Sided Games with substantial research on the merits, which we have links to below. The MNJYSA League allows for the registration of small-sided (8v8) all the way through U12. The benefits of playing small-sided soccer is overwhelming and NPSC wants as many teams moving in this direction as possible. Please take a moment to view this video, this presentation or read this document to learn more about the benefits of small-sided soccer.

The NPSC is not abandoning its dedication to recreational soccer. It will always be our focus to have options for players of all abilities and levels of commitment and we feel these changes will allow us to provide a better experience for all our players. It is important to note that MNJYSA does include teams as far as Princeton and occasionally may require further travel. Most games are no further than Edison where many of our InterCounty teams often play.

Due to these changes, the NPSC’s program names will change for the 2015/2016 seasons:

Select Program (formally ‘Competitive Travel’): This program is for the player who wants the most competitive program NPSC can offer. The Select player is committing to playing soccer in both the fall and spring seasons. It is assumed that soccer is the Select player’s first choice if conflicts arise. The NPSC believes children should participate in as many sports as possible and understand that conflicts will happen. We would encourage players to discuss conflicts with the team coaches and to always choose games over practices regardless of sport. NPSC Select teams will play in the MNJYSA league. Attending tryouts is required.

Travel Program (formally ‘Recreational Travel’): This program is for the player who wants to play soccer in either the fall and/or spring. These teams will play in either the MNJYSA or ICYSL leagues. Whenever possible U12 teams and younger will be placed in the MNJYSA league and play small-sided (8v8) soccer. Players choosing Travel Program soccer have the option of playing in the fall, spring or both. No matter what season a player is choosing to participate in, attending tryouts is recommended so that players can be placed properly. Players who do not wish to attend tryouts are welcome on Travel Program teams.

Tryouts for team placement will be held on Saturday, May 30 and Saturday, June 6. Please find the schedule here. You must register to attend tryouts. Registration is now open on the NPSC website. Just as a reminder, the majority of team placement scoring comes from the yearly assessment completed by our professional UK Elite team trainers. We need all of our players to attend their UK Elite training sessions and put forth their greatest effort so that each player has a proper evaluation.

Please do not hesitate to contact NPSC Board Members with any questions you may have.

Thank you
