Formation of Teams

PSC offers boys and girls, ages seven to nineteen the opportunity to train and play for our academy program and competitive teams. The Academy Program allows boys and girls ages seven and eight to train and experience game play in Jamborees.

Typically at the younger ages (non-academy age) teams may be formed to balance the development of player skills. The makeup of these teams will be determined by the Soccer Club to maximize development of all youth selected for all teams. When more than one team is formed in a particular age group, players will be divided into two or even three teams. The "A" teams will be formed with those who are better prepared to compete physically, mentally and in terms of skill development. The "B" and or "C" teams shall be formed out of the remaining players and shall be developmental teams. If there are insufficient players at some ages, age groups may be combined to form a team. Placement of those teams will be governed by WMYSA rules.

We have found many parents and players feel they need to play for the "A" team because those are the only teams with quality coaches. This is not the philosophy of the PSC. We take pride in not just the development of our players, but our coaching staff as well. Parents are strongly urged to remember all players develop at different rates, and being placed on the "B" or "C" team is also a great opportunity to grow and develop, especially when attitudes are positive and the focus is on fun and development at a healthy pace. There are many examples of youth who played on "B" and "C" teams who became excellent players, including several Portage youth who eventually made the "A" teams playing at premier, MRL and have gone on to earn All-Division and All-District status on their high school teams. Please visit our alumni page to read a more.


Guideline:

Players are expected to participate in both nights of their age group tryout

Players who cannot make a scheduled tryout time should contact Dana Pope well BEFORE the tryout date for further information regarding a supplemental tryout.

Parents will not be allowed at the fields during the tryouts. After registering the player all parents must return to the parking lot or concession stand area until the conclusion of the tryout. Some parental involvement may be required to collect data; however, parents may not volunteer for the age group which includes their child.

Children may tryout at an advanced age group only if they meet the criteria as set forth in the Club's policy which can be found on this website.

Other important information is also available on the Admin page, including notification of results after tryouts. It is very important you enter the parent/contact phone number and email addresses on the on-line registration form you fill out. If you're going to be out of town after tryouts, leave alternate contact information with Dana Pope. Be sure to include the child's name and age group with the contact information.

The PSC Code of Ethics will be followed by all players, parents, and coache
