Arsenal Colorado will be holding Birth Year Trainings (BYT) to prepare for the 2023/24 seasonal year. These sessions are to aid in the player identification process for the coaching staff prior to our official tryout dates May 30 and May 31.

Players who are currently involved in our recreational program, PDL or players outside the club are welcome to register to attend the sessions. (birth years 2005-2013)

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.
