Travel Tryouts for 2018-2019 Teams

PVSC is currently transitioning away from fielding Travel Teams.  We do still plan to field teams for boys U11 and U12 teams (birth years 2007 and 2008).  Tryout registration for these two teams is now open online, please register by logging into your PVSC account or creating one if you do not have one.

If you are not eligible for the U11 or U12 boys teams, we encourage you to attend Tryouts with our partner soccer club, FC Providence.  Our clubs will combine their resources and work together to provide a comprehensive soccer program for the players in the area.

If you have any questions please contact our Director of Travel Soccer, Leon Kanopka.

Online registration through our website is required for tryouts and can be done through your PVSC account (or creating one if you do not have one).  There is no cost to tryout.

All players attending tryouts are required to register for tryouts.  Registration and tryout participation is free.

Participants are strongly encouraged to register online for tryouts prior to the tryouts.  Online registration is available by first registering for the website (if you haven't done so already) and then choosing the Travel Soccer Tryouts 2018-2019 program for your child under the "My Account" link.  Paper registrations will be available at each Tryout to those who cannot register online at the Tryouts.

Required Items for Tryouts

All participants must bring the following to each tryout:

  1. Registration form (completed online or hard copy)
  2. Shin guards (covered by soccer socks)
  3. Cleats or other acceptable footwear
  4. Soccer ball
  5. Water or drinks


A few general tips and advice for participants:

  1. Please arrive at least 20 minutes early for each tryout to register and warm-up.
  2. Every player must attend at least one tryout session, but are encouraged to attend all if possible.
  3. Give it your best effort at each tryout and have fun!

After Tryouts

  1. Following the final tryout, coaches and staff meet to create rosters based on their evaluations.
  2. Once rosters are finalized head coaches from each age group will contact each player who tried out.
  3. Players will be contacted within one week after the last tryout

How are Players Evaluated?

Tryouts are structured to allow coaches and staff to evaluate participants in relaxed setting. Participants are encouraged to showcase all of their talents, including not only their technical abilities, but also their athletic ability and how they play the game.

Coaches will evaluate players at tryouts based on four primary criteria: 
o Physical Ability - speed, stamina, strength, agility, coordination, etc. 
o Technical Ability - How a player performs the various skills of the game (dribbling, shooting, passing,
receiving, etc.) 
o Tactical Ability - Decision Making. Being able to think on a field and make quick, intelligent decisions on
offense, defense and transition. 
o Psychological Ability - How much the player enjoys playing, enjoys competition, is able to handle the
stress that comes with competing, etc. 

In order for coaches to properly evaluate players, PVSC STRONGLY ASKS all parents to refrain from coaching their child during the tryout process. The coaches need to be able to see players in action, working on their own, thinking on their own and solving the problems of the game. If a player instead is simply following instructions from Daddy or Mommy, then the coaches will assume the player has no ability to think on the field. It is therefore in each child's interest for parents to simply stay out of the way and remain quiet on the sidelines while they are playing.
