We are aware that many clubs are conducting tryouts and players and parents may have a lot of questions.
Before you commit to a club at or after tryouts, please consider the following:
- What are the specifics of the USC League? Have they shared them with your club, your team or you as parent? How will this affect the cost to the families (registration, uniforms, added travel)?
- If United Soccer Club representatives are so sure that STYSA will not be offering competitive soccer, why are they pressuring clubs, teams and parents to make a commitment quickly?
- Why are the United Soccer Club representatives now contacting clubs not initially invited to consider joining them?
- Teams that are considering changing clubs and have already qualified for STYSA Competitions in Fall 2015 will retain their spot as long as the team retains a core number of players (50% + 1) from the qualifying season, regardless of the club the team plays under. Teams earn their places in STYSA competitions, not clubs.
Regardless of the teams going to the USC League there still remain a large number of clubs that are loyal to STYSA and are ready to take advantage of any opportunities left open by clubs and teams that choose to leave.
