IMPORTANT TRYOUT INFORMATION – PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE MESSAGE
Tryout dates, times, and locations can change so we recommend checking our website and/or social media to verify before heading to your tryout. Schedules are on the Paragon Futbol website under tryouts.
If you still need to register for the 2023-2024 tryout please click here to register.
Q: How do I register for tryouts?
ALL soccer athletes MUST COMPLETE the tryout registration online before participating in the tryout process.
Please register online at least 24 hours in advance to ensure that the soccer athlete is in the system and that we have your information to notify you after the tryout process. A Registration Steps document on the Tryouts page will walk you through the process. Each soccer athlete should attend both tryout days. If you are unable to attend both days, please reach out to the Program Director.
Q: Can my child play up an age group?
Any player playing up will be at the discretion of their respective director. All players need to register and attend the tryout for their correct age group.
Q: What should I wear and bring to tryouts?
Please come prepared with a fully inflated soccer ball, proper footwear, shin guards, and plenty of water.
Q: We will not be able to attend tryouts or are new to the area and missed tryouts. Is there a process in place to allow for an alternate tryout?
Yes! If you cannot attend tryouts or missed the tryout dates, please register, and then contact firstname.lastname@example.org & state you wish to try out so arrangements can be made. We also hold supplemental tryouts throughout the year. Roster openings may be limited after the initial tryout period.
Q: What are the differences between Academy and Premier?
Our Academy provides a highly competitive environment for higher-level soccer athletes. This program provides those athletes with the best local training offered by our qualified and professional staff. Our Academy teams play at the highest possible level providing showcase opportunities to College, Professional, and National level programs.
The Premier Program provides the opportunity for players to play other sports or have other interests outside of soccer. This program is designed to be flexible, convenient, and affordable.
Q: If I try out for a program and don’t make it, can I try out for another program?
Yes. If you don’t make an Academy team, we strongly encourage you to try out for a Premier team, attending tryouts for at least one day.
Q: If my child doesn't make the top team, can they move up during the year?
Yes, there may be opportunities to move up throughout the year as long as the coach/director feels it is in the best interest of the player’s development. There may also be opportunities to guest play across all levels.
Q: What can I expect after tryouts?
After tryouts, you can expect communication from the club in the form of an email. This will either be an acceptance email, offering your child a position on a team, or an email letting you know that they should try out for a different program. Players who are offered positions on a team may also receive a phone call from their coach. All communication will come within 24-48 hours of the end of the last tryout. You will then have 24 hours to either accept or decline your email before your spot is offered to another child.
Q: What are the next steps if my child makes a team?
If you are new to the club, you will receive more information regarding your uniform ordering in your confirmation email.
If you are part of the Academy or Premier Programs, you will receive the link to Demosphere to register your child in the state system in your confirmation email as well.
