Travel Tryout Information

Tryout Registration: All players interested in trying out for a travel must register PRIOR to attending the tryout.  Walk-up registrations will not be accepted.  Please log into your account to register.

Players are to register with their correct age group only. Players are to attend their correct birth year/age group for tryouts.  If a player would like to 'play-up' (in the next age group), you must indicate that when completing the registration and the player must attend both age group tryouts.  For example, if your player was born in 2012 and would like to tryout for the 2011 team, he/she must attend both the 2012 AND 2011 tryout.

Attire: All players must wear shin guards and cleats to the tryouts.  No jewelry (with the exception of medical id bracelets/necklaces) of any kind is allowed.  Please make sure players remove all jewelry prior to attending the tryouts.  MLBTB SC and trainers are not responsible for lost or misplaced items of any kind.

Venue: Tryouts are conducted by our training partner, Soccer Alliance and will be held at RVA Fieldds in Boonton Township @ 353 Powerville Rd.
Parents may watch tryouts from the designated spectator area only and are not permitted to be on the field or sidelines.  Only players, trainers and MLBTB SC travel committee members are permitted to be on the soccer fields during tryouts. 

The Try-outs will be held in April/May. (Date and times will be posted on our website). All evaluations will be conducted by an outside professional soccer training organization. The tryouts will consist of skill assessments and scrimmages according to age groups and gender.

Tryout/Team Notification/Team Formation: Tryouts are a critical aspect of team formation and therefore mandatory for all interested players.  In addition to tryout results, team formation will rely on input from prior season's professional trainer evaluations and coach.  Players new to travel soccer will be evaluated solely by tryout results.  Notification of selection will be made at the conclusion of the Spring Season, near the end of June. Once a player is notified, it is expected that your child will join the team. This acceptance will indicate participants’ and parents’ willingness to fulfill the commitments required.

Parents should understand that a large number of children may tryout for a limited number of roster spots. This may result in some children not being selected for a team. The roster size is set by the state so we do not have the option to exceed a certain number of players per team. Also, the traveling soccer program may not be appropriate for every child. Please be mindful of these facts before the try-out process. Remember, the MLBTBSC recreation program is a wonderful alternative that will continue to build your child’s skills.

Out of Town Players – While our preference is to have our travel teams be 100% Mountain Lakes, Boonton and Boonton Twp players, the reality is that we might not be able to field teams in certain age groups. As a contingency our by laws allow for up to 4 out of town players on travel teams.
