TRYOUTS IN MAY, CHECK HERE FOR UPDATES ON TIMES AND DATES. CONTACT US FOR DETAILS: firstname.lastname@example.org
Below are details during normal tryout for a full year. Tryout process and payment for spring only will be different and the fee will be adjusted. Reach out to discuss: email@example.com
Offers and Acceptances. We hope to send team offers the week after tryouts. Within a short period of time after receiving an offer, Alliance will require an acceptance and a $100 non-refundable deposit. The deposit will go toward the balance of the team fee.
Fees. The balance of the team fee can be paid when you accept a team offer (if your child makes a team), but it is not required at the time of acceptance. The balance will be due during registration at the beginning of June. In some circumstances, Alliance will offer a payment plan paid by credit card. Team fees, these amounts include the $100 deposit – thus subtract $100 from these amounts for the balance due after payment of the deposit: (1) $680 for non-high school teams (birth year 2006 and younger); and (2) $580 for the high school teams. Please note, depending on our ability to offer play during the summer, we may be revising team fees.
The fee is for one full year of Alliance team play, including: (1) August pre-season training; (2) Fall outdoor practice and games; (3) winter indoor practice and games; (4) spring outdoor practice and games; and (5) one tournament.
Teams. Teams are constructed based on birth year, as required by US Soccer and US Club Soccer. Some exceptions are made based on a player’s skill and development and team dynamic. For a listing of this year’s current teams visit here.
We hope to host clinics in Oak Park parks for Alliance players of all ages, included in team fee. If allowed, one week of summer clinics will be offered for High School Alliance players, included in team fee. We do not intend to rush this process, we want to play, we want to be outside, and we want to abide by all rules for the safety of our players, coaches, and the community.
We will hope to begin hosting clinics when the various governing bodies and entities determine it is safe to re-open and play. We do not intend to rush this process, we want to play, we want to be outside, and we want to abide by all rules for the safety of our players, coaches, and the community.
We have hosted this clinic for the past several years.
Prep Skills Clinic for High School Boys Tryouts! If allowed, we will host one week of high school trial prep in July/August to boys tryouts out for high school, included in team fee. We do not intend to rush this process, we want to play, we want to be outside, and we want to abide by all rules for the safety of our players, coaches, and the community. We have offered this clinic for the past several years.
Summer Scrimmages. The club offers weekly summer scrimmages throughout the summer at Oak Park parks. Included in fee. We will begin doing scrimmages when the various governing bodies and entities determine it is safe to re-open and play. We do not intend to rush this process, we want to play, we want to be outside, and we want to abide by all rules for the safety of our players, coaches, and the community. We have offered scrimmages for multiple years.
Practices. Teams practice generally, 2 times a week in the fall, 1 time a week in the winter, and 2 times a week in the spring. There are some exceptions to this and some teams may offer more than this minimum. There will be club wide goalie clinics.
Fall and Spring outdoor practices will take place locally. Winter indoor practices will take place nearby – for example Berwyn, Hillside, and Oak Park.
Games. Fall and spring outdoor games take place locally in Oak Park, River Forest, Melrose Park, Berwyn, and Cicero (half of all games) and the away games will take place generally in the Chicago metro area. Occasionally there are games near Rockford or Kankakee, but these games are not the norm. The majority of the “away” games are in the Chicago area.
Tournament. The majority of the tournaments are in the Chicago area. However, 2003 teams and older will do College Show case tournaments.
