MYS Juniors Tryout Schedule - 2020
We normally have tryouts in May for Juniors, but due to the pandemic we are taking recommendations from coaches and also interest from parents.
If you think your child would like to participate in Juniors please reach out to Jamil Faryadi at jamil.faryadi@mcleansoccer.org.
Please note the Juniors program is for rising U8s (current U7s), who are all born in the 2013 birth year.
 
MYS Juniors Program

The Juniors program is a year-long, pre-travel training program for a select group of focused, engaged players who love to play soccer. Players are introduced to a deliberate training environment, which focuses on player autonomy & creativity. The coaches focus on nurturing a genuine enjoyment of the game and pose the game of soccer as a game of decision-making and problem-solving.

Juniors train twice during the week, and play inner-squad "Game Days" on Saturdays in the fall and spring. The players also train once a week on Sunday afternoons in the winter, in conjunction with the Ballmasters program. Session I of Ballmasters is included in the total fee for the Juniors Program. Details on our Ballmasters program are located on our Training and Camps page. For more information on registration and fees, please visit our Registration and Fees page.
