Signature OPEN Tryouts for Fall 2016 – April 24th & May1st

So … what is the Signature League?

The LNYSA Signature Program was created for recreational league players who wish to have additional developmental opportunities and to play in a more competitive soccer environment. Signature is a natural progression, or transition, for players wishing to play at a higher level, while retaining many of the benefits of a recreational schedule at a low cost.

PLEASE REGISTER BELOW BEFORE ATTENDING TRYOUTS ON APRIL 24th & MAY 1st!

 

Practices begin in mid-July. The season duration is similar to the LNYSA recreational program. Teams begin matches at the beginning of September and finish their season with a tournament that concludes in mid-December.

This season, Signature teams will be formed under the new US Soccer Youth Development Guideline. Instead of using the August 1st cut-off date, teams will be formed according to the players’ birth year. Previously formed Signature teams will have some flexibility in creating competitive teams that also keep reasonable continuity of their past roster make-up; in addition, rational requests to ‘play-up’ will be approved in order to maintain continuity. Also note, the new age bracket change will provide the opportunity to form additional teams in each age bracket. In summary, the program will adopt the best strategy for each team and age bracket, based on their own merits.

Players are selected via a thorough tryout process that is standardized for all age brackets. While only one tryout is required, it is strongly suggested that a candidate attend both tryout dates for maximum exposure to the coaching staff. The LNYSA Signature Director will conduct a parent orientation before each age bracket tryout to answer further questions.

All players who plan to attend Signature tryouts (including returning players) must register using the form below in order to attend Signature tryouts.  Tryouts will be held at Bear Brand Park on Sunday, April 24th and Sunday, May 1st.
