Competitive teams may approach players beginning the first Monday after the last day of the playoffs until the player has accepted an invitation from a competitive team or they have been rostered to a recreational team and it is within two weeks of the start of seasonal play with the prior approval of the Vice President of Recreational Program and consultation with the Club Registrar regarding the impact to recreational team.
Once a player has accepted an invitation from any team, a Player Release Form will be required in order for another coach, team or club representative to approach the player. Approach means any contact with a player, including but not limited to inviting the player to practice or tryout, talking to the player about changing teams, or any other form of recruitment initiated by the coach or team representatives. Violation of this rule may result in a disciplinary hearing and suspension of coaching privileges for the involved party(ies). However, if a team is disbanded prior to the start of seasonal play, players may be released or reassigned without requesting a transfer.
Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Trainers and/or any team representative may not request or allow players other than ones on their team roster to practice or participate in any soccer activities unless it is with the prior knowledge and consent of the player’s primary coach.
Congratulations to those that made one of our select teams. We are excited and can't wait to get the new season kicked off after the summer break.
For those that didn't not make a team. Please hold out for a spot. In the event that a player or 2 does not register, we will be looking to fill these roster spots.
ATTENTION: Rosters are subject to change in the event that players do not register within 48 hours. Roster spots are only guaranteed when the team the are assigned is complete.
00 and 01 Boys Teams: There are a number of 01 boys that we anticipate playing onto the 00 Boys team. We will continue to evaluate and also use the player pass system to give the player opportunities.
Will be following up with information for their teams.
FC Thunder hosts Select Team tryouts following the Spring Soccer Season. During tryout sessions, FC Thunder Director of Coaching (DOC) and professional trainers evaluate players using age group-specific United States Soccer Federation (USSF) guidelines that include:
Upon completion of the tryout sessions, the Director of Coaching and trainers collaborate to determine team placement, where applicable.
Players are required to try out for their age-specific groups. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Director of Coaching.
Parent and Player Commitment Agreement
FC Thunder will offer a player a spot on a Select Team after tryouts have concluded. If a player accepts a spot on a FC Thunder Select Team, he/she is required to complete a Parent and Player Commitment Agreement which reflects his/her commitment for a full seasonal year.
During the aforementioned time period, players accepting spots are required to play exclusively for the FC Thunder Select Team (with the exception of school coordinated sports); thus, players should not play for more than one team (despite level of play) at the same time in any league unless written authorization (eg, Club Player Pass) is provided by the Director of Coaching.
FC Thunder Select and Academy teams will have a designated webpage located within the club website (see the “Teams” page). Team managers (or designees) will be responsible for maintaining the webpage with team-specific information including: current events, and practice session, game, and tournament schedules.
• First and Last Name
• Phone Number (of any kind)
• Name of School
• Uniform Number
• Last Name Only
• Team Picture*
Team managers (or designees) should contact the FC Thunder webmaster to request write access to the team-specific webpage; recommend one person per team allowed write access.
The FC Thunder Webmaster, at his/her discretion, may request revision to content of webpages and/or may revise accordingly.
