West Orange United 2019-2020 Tryouts

West Orange United. F.C. invites boys and girls born between 2004 and 2012 to tryout for the Fall 2019-Spring 2020 travel soccer year.  There is no fee to tryout, but registration is required.  Further information about the WOUFC travel soccer program and the complete tryout schedule are below.

TRYOUTS

All players wishing to be considered for a 2019-2020 team must register for tryouts.  (This includes players currently on a WOUFC team.)  Players should register for their actual birth year, regardless of their grade or current team. Players must attend at least one tryout session, but are encouraged to attend both.  All tryouts are held at West Orange High School (Lincoln Field).  Please arrive 10 minutes before the start of the session to check in. Players should bring sneakers or cleats, shin guards, a ball and water.  Parents may watch from the bleachers or outside the gate. 

A complete tryout schedule and links to register are below. 

IMPORTANT:  We expect to communicate tryout results by email before the end of May.  Please ensure that the contact information associated with your Mountain Top account is correct and up-to-date.

ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT INFO.

•    West Orange United is a competitive travel soccer program.  We currently field 19 teams playing in three different leagues.

•    Travel soccer is a substantial commitment for both players and families.  Players are expected to play both fall and spring seasons.  Teams practice two evenings per week and play games each weekend.  Attendance at practices and games is mandatory.   Most players also participate in a winter indoor session in January and Feburary.  Details about the winter program, including cost, will be available in November.

•       Each season (fall and spring) consists of approx. 10 games, half played in West Orange, and half in other towns.  Travel time ranges from 10 minutes (Livingston, Verona, etc.) up to about an hour, with the average being about 40 minutes.  In the fall, most boys teams will play Saturdays and a few will play Sundays. All girls will play Sundays.  All teams play Sundays in the spring.  Make-up games can be scheduled Sat., Sun. or during the week (rarely).

•       We expect that fall practices will begin on Tuesday, September 3rd.  All teams will participate in the Essex Fall Tune-Up Tournament the weekend of September 6-8.  Teams will complete their fall season by Thanksgiving.   Spring practices will begin mid-March, and the spring season will wrap up early/mid-June.

•    WOUFC follows the U.S. Soccer player development model.  Each year teams are formed based on age and our trainers’ assessment of current ability level to provide the best possible environment for each player to develop his/her skills and understanding of the game. Team placement is not permanent and may change from year to year and occasionally season to season.  

•    Players not able to commit to the full year program or who wish to play locally in West Orange, should register for the Mountain Top fall soccer program.  In addition to weekly league play for children age 4 through 9th grade, Mountain Top offers weekly professional training sessions.  Like the travel program, Mountain Top also follows the US Soccer player development model, and provides an excellent opportunity for players to improve their skills.
