RULES FOR LTFC TRYOUTS
Please make sure to pre-register for tryouts at lakelandtropicsfc.org. Create an account (if you don’t already have a Blue Sombrero account) and keep your information on file as you will be required to login after tryouts. Decisions on trying out at an age group + will be made based off of recommendations from your current age group coach and reviewed by the technical staff for final approval.
Notify the administrators of any medical conditions that may limit your son’s or daughter’s ability to tryout. You will be required to produce your tryout request form signed by the techincal director to proceed.
Parents/Guardians and spectators are required to stay away from the tryout areas. Parents are not allowed to talk to any of the coaches or evaluators during the tryout process. Please direct any questions you may have to the tryout administrators in the registration tent. We firmly believe it is in your child’s best interest to be having fun, playing and showing their skills without the pressure of having parents involved in the activities.
Our goal is to finalize all of our teams on the field as soon as possible, and most teams will be completed by the end of tryouts on Sunday. We understand the sensitivity of the tryout process and we also understand that there is no “perfect” way to inform our players and families, but over the years we do know that it is important to get through the process as quickly as possible. You will be notified through email regarding player placement.
If your child is offered a position, you must be prepared to accept or decline at that point. A “maybe” answer is equivalent to a “no.”
A non-refundable commitment payment will also be due at the time your son/daughter is selected. Please reference Player Dues on page 9 for the amount, as it’s based on team age.
In the week following tryouts, you will meet with your team and handle any miscellaneous items and get your team plan for the year. If you cannot attend that meeting, please let your coach know so you can get all of the needed information.
