Tryouts

General Information

CGA tryouts 2020/2021 are organized to reveal competence in a variety of individual skills as well as small group and team performance. Although players will be evaluated by their technical, tactical, physical and psychosocial abilities, these evaluations are just a guideline. Past performances, commitment to the team and player development may become considerations. Tryouts will be conducted in Pocatello, Idaho Falls and Teton Valley.

Pre-Tryouts Process

  • CGA will host an Open House event in each community, before tryouts, for people to find out more about the club
  • Advanced registration is requested for administrative and on-field planning purposes
  • All players must register whether you are a current CGA player or new to CGA

Day of Tryouts Process

  • Players need to check in at the fields with CGA representative before taking the field
  • Players are responsible for their own gear (cleats, socks, shorts, gloves, ball)
  • CGA will provide a tryout identification number for new players attending our club tryouts
  • Current club players should wear red uniform jersey (jersey number will be the tryout identification)

Post-Tryouts Process

  • Players are encouraged to attend multiple tryout locations for the opportunity to be seen more
  • Ideally all teams will be finalized within 5-10 days of the final tryout
  • If you are offered an invitation to be part of a team player needs to commit at this time or take a decision within 48 hours
