What to expect at our tryouts:
We hope everyone is doing well during this unprecedented time. We want to let everyone know what to expect with our Club Tryouts for the 2020-2021 season. As you can imagine, with all of the restrictions by the State of Ohio, tryouts will look a little different this year.
Tryout Registration will be up and running Monday, May 4 on cincinnatiwestsoccer.com. We are moving our registration platform to Demosphere. It is extremely important that you recover your imported account in Demosphere. This is important for several reasons; the account contains prior information that will shorten registration time, it will reduce duplicates in our system, and will contain rolled over Age/ID Verification status for players (it is not necessary to upload a new birth certificate). Note that the User ID referred to in this document is the same username (email) you used in Stack. If you played for CWSC last year and forget your username, please email Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send it to you. She will need your child's name, year of birth, and team name or head coach name when you send the email.
Per Ohio South’s recommendation and guidance, our tryouts are slated to be “Virtual.”
What is the plan for CWSC tryouts?
Due to the extension of the State of Ohio’s stay at home order through the end of May, our tryouts will look a little different this year. Coaches have been evaluating their players throughout the Fall/Winter/Spring and communicating with the other coaches in their age group, as well as the club directors, about player placement. Our Coaches will select teams based on these overall evaluations and communication amongst one another. We have also altered our tryout application for non-CWSC players, to have a better understanding of where those players would fit in our program.
How/When will I be contacted about team placement?
Everyone must register for tryouts via Demosphere before you can be considered or placed on a CWSC team. The club may begin making offers to current CWSC players and recreational players on May 26. Please keep in mind it may take a few days to receive your offer. All non-CWSC players (those currently affiliated with a different club) will begin receiving offers May 29. The club will send you an email via Demosphere. This email will notify you of team placement, and you must accept or decline this email offer prior to the deadline set forth in that email. If you hit "Accept" on your offer, you will be directed to fill out the proper registration forms as well as make a non-refundable deposit that will go toward your club fee. The registration form and payment must be completed for us to see that you have accepted.
Who are all the coaches for the Fall 20 / Spring 21 seasons?
Coaching assignments will be posted as we get closer to May 26. Our goal is to let everyone know who is coaching our teams prior to the tryout offer dates.
Once I've accepted, filled out registration forms, and paid the club fee deposit, what happens next?
Once all roster spots for that team are accepted, the Head Coach will be in touch via email.
