2017/2018 Travel Soccer Tryouts
Register for Travel Soccer Tryouts via the following links:
The Davidsonville Athletic Association holds annual open tryouts for our travel soccer program in the spring to form teams for the next soccer year (Fall-Spring 2017/2018). The goal of tryouts is the selection of players for travel teams within DAA. We are planning to field teams for all age groups starting with Boys/Girls U09 (birth year 2009 and older). Depending on numbers registered and talent-level we may field more than one team at a particular age group.
Tryouts will be held the week of June 5th (M-Th). Supplemental Tryouts (as needed) will be held the week of June 12th (M-Th).
The following coaches are planned for the 2017/18 season. As coaches are finalized, the list will be updated. Additional info on each coach can be found here.
Charlie Raphael - 2002, 2003, 2004 Boys & 2004 Girls
David Bukowski – 2006 Girls
Steven Macdonald - 2000, 2001, 2007 Boys
John Steele - 2006 Boys
Bob Gleeson - 2001/02 Girls
Danielle Piccirilli - 2007 Girls
Dakota Edwards - 2005, 2008 Boys & 2005 Girls
Travel Teams are selected on a competitive basis. Positions on a team MUST be earned. Just because a player played on a team last year does NOT guarantee him/her a place for the 2017/18 season. Tryouts are open to any player and are free of charge. Players may sign up for and participate in more than one age group to which they are age eligible.
Val Teixeira will lead the tryout evaluations. All tryout sessions will be conducted and assessments provided by impartial, highly trained, soccer professional/trainer(s). All final decisions on team placement will be made by the Travel Program Coordinator in conjunction with individual team head coaches. The independent assessments will serve as the basis for team selection. Players will be officially notified of their invitation to join a specific team via a computer generated e-mail.
