What are Partnership Teams?

A partnership team means that there are players from both clubs on the roster to tighten the range of playing level on a team.  This will make the Partnership teams more successful than a home club team might have been in the past; whereas “successful” means a better overall soccer experience.  

 

 Tryouts are listed by home club and partnership.

  • Players that are U12(2008) and older only need to attend one of the two tryouts but must attend BOTH tryout days.
  • Each age group U10 - U15 could potentially have two (2) Partnership teams at varying playing levels (formerly C1/C2/C3 now MFL, League 1, Black and Blue) , but ONLY if it makes sense for that age group.
  • The second Partnership team will be based on the number of players who participate in the Partnership tryouts
  • Example:
  • The top 14 players evaluated for an age/level roster are all from the same club.  Then that team will stay as a home club roster.
  • The top 28 players evaluated for an age/level roster are all of equal skill/development level.  If 14 are from 1 club and the other 14 from the other club then 2 home club teams are made. There would be no “experience” benefit to create a “partnership” team assuming all positions are covered equally. 
  • 14 players attend a partnership tryout, and leave 7 players at each club without a team.  A partnership team will not be formed, and each club will have a home team
  • If you are not placed on a Partnership team, you will then be placed on a home club team. You are not in jeopardy of not being placed on a team.
  • Not everyone who attends a Partnership tryout will be placed on a Partnership team.
  •  If you do not want your child placed on a roster with a different club’s players regardless of the reason or best fit, then you would sign up for your club specific tryout. 
  • Understand that your child may end up on a roster below (or above) their playing level if that is all the home club has to offer. 

 

Regardless of which tryout your child attends, they will be placed on a roster AND you will be given the opportunity to change your mind. 

 

Fees are now based on the age/level of the team not the home club of the roster or whether or not it is a partnership team. 

 

The difference for a PARENT between playing on a Partnership team vs a  Home Club is the distance to practice and games. 

 

The difference for the PLAYER is the quality of experience.
