It is important that evaluation criteria are transparent so that each player/parent fully understands the professional coaches’ recommendation for placement within the ASA travel or other programs. At tryouts, players will be evaluated on the following, among other things:

  • Speed: Technical speed, pure speed, and speed of execution and/or speed of thought
  • Technique: First touch/passing skills under pressure
  • Character: Work-rate, coachability, desire (Do they work off the ball? Do they enjoy the game and have a love for the sport?)
