*Please make sure to only register for ONE program!*
Step 1: Register.
Step 2: Check the Tryout Calendar.
> The tryout calendar is posted above. Check dates, times, and age groups to be sure your player attends the appropriate sessions for their designated age and program. Players who are currently playing up should attend tryouts with their current team unless directed otherwise. Chesapeake United has 2 dates set for youth players and 1 date set for senior players with rain out dates planned in advance. It is strongly suggested that players attend all sessions for their respective age groups. In the event that your player is unable to attend both sessions, please contact Info@ChesapeakeUnited.com.
Step 3: Attend Tryouts.
> Players should arrive for their tryout 20-30 minutes ahead of time to ensure proper time for check-in and warm-ups. Be sure to visit the check-in table to get your number when you arrive. Tryouts will start promptly at the times scheduled.
Step 4: Receive Player Placement.
> At the conclusion of tryouts, staff and team coaches will meet to discuss player placements. Once player placement meetings have concluded and all players have been assigned, team assignments will be sent out via email. When you receive this placement, you will have 48 hours to accept your position.
Step 5: Team Meetings & Ordering Uniforms
> When player acceptance is complete and teams are officially formed, you will be contacted by your team coach who will schedule an introductory meeting with the team to discuss summer plans and the start of the fall season. Competitive teams and coaches will also have a meeting as a club with the Technical Director after team meetings are complete. All players should wait for an indication from the club that it is time to order uniforms prior to doing so.
Step 6: Starting Training & Games
> Training will begin in August and games will begin in September with potential for a pre-season tournament in August.
PLAYERS SHOULD ATTEND BOTH TRYOUT DATES FOR THE COMPETITIVE PROGRAM. If your player is unable to attend both sessions, please contact Info@ChesapeakeUnited.com.
