The basis of tryouts is to identify and group players of like ability. The process is not perfect as players grow, develop and mature at different rates, but our procedure takes this into consideration by supporting multiple teams at each age group. Typically, tryouts can be a stressful period for players and families. In attempt to combat this, the club begins its player identification process early and does not discount a player’s history within the Arsenal Colorado program. Players are evaluated on their technical abilities, tactical capabilities, psychological traits and overall physical attributes.
