Evolution Program Overview

PROGRAM DETAILS

The Fusion Evolution program has been designed for players throughout the U9 thru U15 age groups that want to take the next step towards raising their competitive level, with Club and professional coach support. The Evolution program runs only in the Fall season, which starts the first week in August and ends mid-November.

EVERY player must tryout and there is NO guarantee that players make the team, regardless of registration. Players will be placed after an assessment from the professional coaches.

NOTE: If a player is not placed on an Evolution team, all fees paid to that point will either be refunded or a discount code will be provided for them to be applied towards the recommended program cost. 

Each age group will have a limit of one team, per gender.

Each team will be made up of approximately 11-12 players for the U9 and U10 teams, approximately 12-13 players for the U11 and U12 teams, and 16-18 players for the U13+ teams. 

U9 Thru U12

Teams will be fully coached by our Professional Fusion Premier staff with up to two selected parent volunteer assistant coaches. Teams will practice twice per week and participate in 8-10 weekend league games during the season with their professional coach. Games will be played in Livermore as well as surrounding cities within the Bay Area. Teams will also participate in 1 tournament, to be determined by the Club based on the level of play.

U13 thru U15

Teams will be coached by a selected parent volunteer and will also receive 16+ professionally coached training sessions from a Fusion professional coach during the season. Teams practice at least twice per week, once with the professional coach and a minimum of once with the parent coach. 8-10 weekend league games will be played in addition to 1 tournament, to be determined by the Club based on the level of play. Games will be played in Livermore as well as surrounding cities within the Bay Area.

U16 thru U19

Players in these age groups will participate in a traveling Fall Regional Soccer league under NorCal Premier in the Super Rec Division. 8-10 weekend league games will be played in addition to 1 tournament, to be determined by the Club based on the level of play.

Players in these age groups must register for the Fall Regional League via the link on the Fall Rec Information page. Tryouts will not be held for these age groups.

TEAM PLACEMENT

Teams within the program will play under NorCal Premier at the level of Silver or below. As the teams are formed, Fusion will determine the appropriate level of play for each team and register them for that level.

The Evolution program will have 1 team per age group/gender depending on enrollment and skill level.  

TRYOUTS

Every player within the U9-U15 age groups MUST try out for the Evolution program to be evaluated for placement. There is NO guarantee that players make the team, regardless of registration. Evolution and Premier program players will attend the same tryouts as outlined on our Premier Tryout Information Page, which typically take place in mid-late May.

Refund Policy - Evo

We understand that circumstances may change between registration in the Spring and the start of the soccer season in the Fall.  Cancelations, relocation, injuries, change in schedule or interests are some examples. There are administrative costs that the organization incurs with registration and planning for the season (administrative, staff, insurance, equipment, etc.). Therefore, the refund amount is reduced the longer you wait to cancel your registration and apply for a refund.

This information is as follows:

Requests submitted thru May 31st = Full Refund, minus $25 admin fee

Requests submitted between June 1st through June 30th = 70% refund

Requests submitted between July 1st through July 14th = 50% refund

Requests submitted as of July 15th = No refund unless the program is cancelled.

 

If the program is cancelled, and never started, a full refund will be given minus a $25 admin fee (per player). 

If the program begins, and is cancelled at any time during the season, a prorated refund will be given based on the amount of time the program was active.

Why an admin fee? Staff members must be paid to prepare for the running of the programs throughout the year. In addition, league and insurance fees are paid for each player upon completion of their registration to participate in the program. The admin fee is to cover these costs and ensure no debt is created.
