What to bring: The player should bring an age appropriate ball, water bottle, shin guards, cleats, and a positive attitude.
What criteria is evaluated: Players will be evaluated by a series of instructors. Skills such as ball movement, shooting and passing are evaluated by a series of drills. Attitude, speed, and on field confidence are also factors that could factor into the evaluation process.
