TRYOUT INFORMATION 2021-22
Thank you for your interest in Nashville United Soccer Academy (NUSA)
TRYOUT REGISTRATION FOR 2021-22 IS NOW OPEN
TRYOUTS take place each Spring for the competitive soccer season Aug 1 thru July 31
TRYOUTS are not only NUSA’s evaluation of a player’s talents, but they are also a chance for the parent to find a program that is the best fit for their son or daughter. It is important that you believe in the organization's structure, mission, vision and philosophy and ultimately find a place where your soccer player will be challenged, have FUN, and want to play!
NUSA firmly believes our academy training structure, which resembles many professional youth academies, is the best for developing young players. We want players and families to support and embrace the developmental process as they learn and grow within our organization.
We limit the size of both our Lower and Upper Academies. This keeps our Competitive Academies focused on individual player development, maintaining consistency throughout our organization and putting our players first!
WHAT TO EXPECT AT TRYOUTS:
Players will receive an ID number at the registration table when they check in. They will be asked to pin the number on their shirt and wear them to each day of tryouts. Players will be evaluated by several coaches during the process. Players will play many small sided games and be asked to play in different combinations of players. We ask that players listen, work hard, and have fun! Relax and do your best.
**While it is not mandatory to attend every tryout session, it is highly encouraged. NUSA coaches want to properly evaluate players over multiple nights and as a club, we do limit the size (number of players) in all the competitive academies to ensure quality and consistency.**
WHAT TO WEAR:
Dark shorts, white or light colored t-shirt (no soccer club logos), shin guards and cleats
WHAT TO BRING:
Each player will receive a pin-on ID number that will be used for all tryouts. Please keep this number and wear it each night.
