Select Tryout General Information

NOTE: Due to COVID-19 tryout dates have been pushed back to July 13th-21st by WYSA

Until we get closer to the actual tryouts dates, parameters of tryouts could change based on current conditions from COVID-19. 

If you are not able to attend tryouts during this time frame (due to injury or being out of town) still register and note that in your registration. 

All players with 2003-2011 birth years are welcome to tryout for an Fond du Lac Phoenix Select team.  Any player with 2012 birth year will need permission to tryout from our President, Chad Collett. 

Registration for tryouts are now open. Please read all information for the 2019-2021 Age Group requirements to find your appropriate time to tryout. 

Each age group will have at least two tryout sessions they can attend. They do not need to attend both, but attending more than provides coaches a better chance to evaluate players.

Birth Year and Season Matrix

When determining the age group for a season, the year the season ends should be used for determining the birth year. Also note that the format “U followed by age” really means that age and younger.

If going into 8th Grade, your tryout level is U14. If going into High School, then U15-18 range would be your tryout level.


Age Chart by Birth Year and Seasonal Year

Use the chart below to determine your appropriate age group. The Fond du Lac Soccer Association is a member of the Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association who follows US Soccer age guidelines for teams. It is based on calendar birth year (not grade level) so teams may consist of players in two different grade levels. Please note the U teams in yellow are our select level age groups.
