  2. Register well in advance of tryout dates to assist our evaluators in preparation for each session.

It is highly recommended that players attend both sessions for their age group. If a player is unable to do so, please notify a staff member and/or evaluator at check-in.

  • Session One involves a technical carousel where every player has the opportunity to showcase their technical ability, followed by small sided games.
  • Session Two involves games for understanding (9v9). This is a great opportunity for players to showcase their knowledge of the game and how they apply their technical skills into competition.

What if I am sick, injured or if I have to miss tryouts?

We understand there is always a chance of missing tryouts. Please reach out to us so we can work with you. Most likely we can schedule a different time for your player to be assessed.

What do coaches look for during tryout sessions?

All players will be evaluated based on the MRFC Pillars of Individual Development (Game, Ball, Body, Mind and the 5th Pillar) which encompass the players ability to outplay their opponent, eagerness to learn and love for the game. MRFC Staff is committed to a continuous development pathway, therefore returning players MRFC are more familiar with that individual players development journey and will consider not just the tryout dates.

What do I bring to tryouts?

We ask that players not wear club branded apparel. Bring a water bottle and weather appropriate gear; wear shin guards and cleats.

Do returning players need to try out?

Yes. All players who would like to be considered on a premier team need to attend a tryout.

Is there a sibling discount?

Yes! After registering the first player, each additional sibling will receive a $100 discount when registering at the same time. We understand some tryouts are earlier than others so please reach out to us if you’re having to wait to register to receive a discount.
