What is Summer Select? Just a quick overview of the program!
Q: What is Summer Select?
A: Summer Select is a program rebooted by SJGSL (SJYS) in 2017 as a supplemental summer program for players in South Jersey. This will be our second year offering select opportunities to boys players also.
Q: Who is eligible to tryout?
A: Players register for posted tryouts to be held in December. Tryouts are FREE and are open to all players in SJGSL and SJSL. New this year, if your club plays in the SJ leagues but your child’s team left for better competition, your child is eligible to participate.
Q: What ages can tryout?
A: Age groups for 2022 are 2008 – 2013, there is also potential for a high school age if there is adequate quality and numbers.
Q: How many teams per age?
A: Generally, there is one (1) team per age, however it is determined by the number of players trying out. Last summer the 2009 girls team has so many quality players, we created two highly successful teams.
Q: How often does the team practice?
A: The teams generally train once a week, starting in May and continuing for 12-14 training sessions through the last tournament. Last summer most teams began in March or April and most teams held more than 20 training sessions during the program, and some teams trained two times per week once the season finished.
Q: What is the time commitment?
A: Teams practice once weekly, but the location and time is determined by the coach and team once formed. The teams play three (3) summer tournaments during June and July which are also determined by the coach and team based on availability. And we ask that all selected players consider their availability when accepting the position. Some teams train more than once weekly once the spring season is finished.
Q: What is the cost to accepted players?
A: The fee for accepted players is $400. For that players get, a player pass, training, three tournaments, a complete NIKE kit (colors change yearly), and a training top. Plus goalkeeper specific training weekly, for all Summer Select goalkeepers.
