One recurring question from parents is “...when is the right time to consider a move to competitive soccer?” Moving to a competitive soccer team is a per‐player consideration and can happen at many different ages. For some, the desire to focus on soccer, to build on individual skills and advance to the next level, to play longer each year and to attend tournaments, may feel like the logical next step in their development. Many families find that the rec level offers a broad spectrum of competition and years of development opportunities for their child. But for those ready or considering a move to (or within) the competitive system, we provide detailed information regarding the annual soccer tryout window which will occur each spring.
