Important: Tryout Results Will Be Posted On Website This Year
Please take note:
Unlike in the past, WMSC will not be notifying players of their team placement by individual email. Rather, we will be posting results for each age/gender group on our website by each player’s tryout number. Player names will not be used so it is imperative that you make note of the number your daughter/son is assigned at tryouts. (Suggestion: take a photo of your player with her/his number prominently displayed.) All tryout results for a given age/gender group will be simultaneously posted, by assigned team, in random order (i.e., they will not be in the order that they were ranked at tryouts). The tryout numbers for players who did not initially make a team will be posted as “wait-listed”. As the team formation process progresses players occasionally choose to decline their position on a given team, which gives other players an opportunity to move from the B team to the A team or from the wait list to a team. Should your player be in the position to move, our posted results will be updated and you will be notified via email ASAP. It is our hope that this new process will speed up team formation such that the process for each age/gender group will take less than a week rather than the 1-3 weeks it has taken in the past.
Free Goalkeeper Training Sessions for WMSC Travel Players
In recognition of the key role and unique training needs of goalkeepers, WMSC's goalkeeper development program will continue this spring season with training sessions held Wednesdays, 5:30-7:00, at Mosle Field, and Thursdays, 5:30-7:00, at Ralston Fields. All sessions will be led by specialized goalkeeper trainers.
All WMSC Travel goalkeepers, regardless of age/gender, will train at the same time but will be assigned to different trainers based on ability/experience and age. This differing level of training will allow us to continue development of our experienced and committed keepers while also working with players who have a beginning interest in goalkeeping.
As always, these sessions are free to all WMSC Travel players and there is no need to pre-register -- just turn up at Mosle or Ralston week to week during the spring season. Be sure to let your team trainer know if you will be attending the goalkeeper training instead of your regular team training, as attendance/commitment will be emphasized even more in this year's team formation process than in the past.
