Tryout Details
Tryouts are FREE and we encourage everyone who is interested in the program to attend. Registration for tryouts is done online from the link above. Please make sure all information is accurate, as we will use this information for communication purposes throughout the process.

Due to COVID-19, we are strictly following the suggested guidelines provided by our local officials and health department along with ASA's Return-To-Play Phase Plan & Guidelines to provide the safest possible environment for our kids to participate in. We ask that everyone please review those guidelines before attending tryouts and follow the Player and Parent Requirements for Safe Participation as stated by ASA while attending tryouts. We are currently in Phase 2, and practicing social distancing of 6 feet on and off the field.

In efforts to help with traffic flow and limit large gatherings during tryouts, we also ask that everyone arrive no earlier than 20 minutes before your tryout time. Once you arrived, please check your child in at the Pavillion to receive the next steps. Once your tryout is complete, we ask that you please exit the park in a timely manner so that the next group may arrive safely.

All players should bring a ball, plenty of water, wear a white or light-colored shirt, soccer cleats, and shin guards for all sessions. Parents are NOT ALLOWED on the fields during tryout sessions. The tryout process can be very stressful for a child and parent, and we have found it to be a less stressful experience for the child when mom and dad are out of view. We do though, invite all parents to watch at a distance to see the quality of our staff and program. We encourage everyone to attend both tryout dates for their age group. It is simple. The more time we have to evaluate your child, the better the evaluation will be. Please see age groups, dates and times below.

If you are unable to attend a tryout or tryouts, please contact us @ sean@arlingtonsocceracademy.com or call 901-603-1119.

Tryout Synopsis

  • Tryouts are open to everyone. We are a US Soccer Sanctioned Organization and a current member of Tennessee Soccer.
  • Players are evaluated on skill, athleticism, attitude, and ability.
  • The number of teams formed in any age group depends on the number of qualified players in attendance for that age group.
  • At least one Arlington Soccer Academy staff coach and administrator will attend tryout sessions and be available to answer any questions you may have.
  • No guarantees are given or implied that a player will be selected for any team from year to year. No guarantees are given or implied that a player will play for a specific coach from year to year. If a schedule conflict with tryouts exists, the parents can arrange for other opportunities to try out.
  • Coaches will notify all players who attended tryouts of their status no later than 72 hours after the conclusion of the final tryout session. Players will be notified as early as possible, however, additional time may be necessary for some teams, to ensure that the best possible roster decisions are made.
  • Players should make every effort to attend all tryout sessions and should communicate any scheduling conflicts with the coach or administrator that is conducting those specific age group tryouts.
  • Final player selections are made without regard to race, religion, creed, color, national or ethnic origin. The Arlington Soccer Academy Coaching Staff has complete and autonomous authority over player evaluation and selection.  The Arlington Soccer Academy Administrators and Team Managers assist only in an administrative capacity.

The ASA organization is committed to forming as many age-specific teams as qualified player numbers allow, in an effort to provide all players an opportunity to play competitive soccer. In the event, there are not enough qualified players to form a complete age-specific team, the coaches and Executive Director will pursue options including double-rostering of players or age combinations in an effort to provide those players an opportunity to participate in the competitive program.

Team rosters are formed based on the coach’s assessment of the individual player’s current level. Young players progress at different rates; therefore, as the level of development changes, the coach may reorganize players and teams so that players can progress at a more accelerated rate.
