BASIC INFORMATION REGARDING THE PROGRAM AND TRYOUTS:
Two tryouts will be conducted in most age groups and participants will be evaluated by professional trainers. It is strongly recommended that each participant attend each tryout. The tryout fee is $40. This fee is reduced because we will NOT be providing tryout t-shirts. Instead your child will receive a tryout sticker at each tryout.
- Participants must wear shin guards and cleats to tryouts.
- Participants should wear any shirt appropriate for soccer EXCEPT a Castleford practice, tryout or game shirt.
- Arrive 15 minutes early to check in.
Please bring the following items to tryouts:
- Copy of the player’s birth certificate (only if player has not previously played on a WYSL team)
- Soccer ball
***Players must register in advance (and upload a photo to the registration system) in order to participate in a tryout. Tryout fees are non-refundable. Go to http://castlefordrovers.org/ to register for tryouts and upload a photo. The photo must be a Passport style head shot from the shoulders up only. You can take this with your personal phone or camera.
The BYSC In-house program is a for-fun, community developmental program focused on skills, sportsmanship, team play and a knowledge of the game. As it is often the first organized sport a child plays, we are intent on making it a fun experience for children and their families. It is also intended to develop travel soccer aptitude for those children who have the desire to transition to travel, which is more serious and more competitive.
The Pre-K and Kindergarten Age Groups have parent coached teams assisted by paid Professional Trainers. The Older Age Groups are trained by Professional Trainers - parents are welcome to offer assistance. The Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd Grade Players are eligible for one of two Programs - Saturday ONLY or Saturday + Midweek (Wed) Clinic.
By second grade, more dedicated players may choose our pre-travel program. To learn more about it, please click the pre-travel link at left.
To learn more details about how the in-house program is structured and run, please click on the handout link at the bottom of this page.
We are constantly tweaking our programs based on parent feedback and enrollment numbers, so please bear with us if anything changes.
