Kingston Clippers 2018/19 Identification Sessions

Player Identification Sessions Information

What is the difference between and Identification Session and a Tryout?

The Identification Camp is an opportunity for players to demonstrate their interest in playing for the Kingston Clippers Soccer Club in the summer of 2019. A tryout is a high-risk, often one or two opportunity, chance to prove yourself to evaluators.

Why an Identification Session and not a tryout?

Coaches, at this point in the season, know their players well. In many cases, rosters could be selected in consultation with and approval by the Club Head Coach without putting this year’s players through a tryout. Players outside of the Club still need an avenue into the Club – so we need to give them that chance.

Next Steps

Offers for positions with the Kingston Clippers Junior Gaels summer teams will be made following this identification sessions. Players selected are encouraged to participate in Fall and Winter Training programs and will be required to pay a deposit to hold their roster position.

Do players have to register?

Yes. To speed up the process, players must register before their session. See the registration link below:

My Child was born in 2001 or 2002. What do they do?

YOB 2002 and 2001 who do not have to attend an identification camp will be invited to participate in Fall and Winter Programming and this will lead to the formation of teams in February 2019 based on levels of participation.
 

Should my child play development or competitive soccer?

All parents need to ask whether their child (and their family) should play soccer at a higher level. Click here to see a description of the commitment required to enjoy high level soccer.
