Instructions

Please use the form below to register players for placement with CDO Soccer Club.

For families signing up multiple players, the form will need to be submitted for each player individually.  Use the 'check boxes' to select the age groups of the tryout session(s) that players will be attending.  All players should plan to attend sessions in their true age group and notify coaches if they are attempting to "play up", as there are guidelines from USSF that may limit the number of players whom can play out of birth year format.

With this in mind, players should plan to attend a minimum of one placement sessions within their birth year format to allow coaches the best opportunity to observe and place them accurately on an appropriate team. The current placement schedule can be found at here.

Out of respect for all players participating in the process, please communicate clearly with coaches on accepting or declining positions with the club, as this has a negative effect in our ability to add players and form teams.

Additional Information

In 2016, the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) mandated a change in how teams are formed, switching from a “school year” calendar, (August – July), to the “birth year” calendar, (January – December).

In addition, as part of the new player development initiatives, there are now guidelines on the number of players who can play in an older age group ‘between formats’. The rationale for this guideline is to ensure the majority of players are involved in age appropriate, small sided games for a longer period of their early soccer years. For several seasons, CDO Soccer Club has been taking a proactive-progressive approach in adopting initiatives like small sided formats to further the development of the players in the club and therefore welcomes this initiative by US Soccer.

More information on the new playing formats, game durations, and basic rules, can be seen by clicking on the following link "2019-2020 Playing Formats"

What began in the 2016-2017 season and will continue in 2019-20, our teams will continue to limit play “out of age/format”. That means that an entire team of younger age should not "play up" if it means they have to change game format (e.g. a U10 7v7 team attempting to play at U11 9v9).

NOTE: It is possible that this schedule can change so please double check the times and field location prior to attending a tryout session.
