2018 PREMIER PROGRAM TRYOUTS
40 Years of Fantastic Youth Soccer
2017 was a magical year for Fusion SC! Club highlights included:
Livermore Fusion SC is an elite Premier Program in Northern California. With a coaching staff stacked full of talented people and a Technical staff who specialize in their respective genders. The Premier Program is a perfect place for the ambitious player to grow and achieve their goals.
As you maybe aware, youth soccer has had multiple changes over the past few years. First the amount of players per team was reduced to increase the technical ability of players. Next US Soccer changed the team formation calendar from the school year (August thru July), to the calendar year.
The final move is to change seasonal months for the younger age groups and have them align with the older age groups. Younger age groups (U5 through U14) currently start in February and run through December.
Starting June 2018, these age groups will now go from June through May the following year.
That leaves us with a gap this spring. So to accommodate the change we will have teams formed this winter and then play together for 3 seasons.
What does this mean for player evaluations for 2018?
Clubs are allowed to hold tryouts for all "their" current players this winter but can not hold tryouts for any player from another club until next May, if the clubs chooses to do so.
An additional rule NorCal Premier ( League governing body) added, is the rule of a tryout window. This is in place to ensure players start to see through commitments in clubs and every club holds their tryouts at the same time and the right time: The END of the year before.
Livermore Fusion SC will hold internal (Fusion Players Only) evaluations for Rec, Select and current Premier players in December 2017. During these evaluations the players will be offered placements on a team that will then play together for Spring 2018, Fall 2018 and Spring 2019. This will allow us to have all teams transition smoothly into the new soccer calendar for the following year. (2019-2020 year)
