Frequently Asked Questions about ELITE Soccer

Club Philosophy

The PMSC Elite program is for players who want to advance to the next level of their game. We require a 1 year commitment to playing (fall and spring seasons). We expect players to attend all practices, tournaments, games, and team trainings that the elite program provides. When making the decision to try out or not for an elite team, please consider whether your child and family can make this commitment to the higher fees, and a higher level commitment to soccer itself. We emphasize building self-confidence, good sportsmanship, team playing, and 100% effort given by players at all times. We want the kids to have fun while they are doing this but they need to have a level of commitment as well.

Season

The program consists of an annual tryout in the spring for the following year, which is a fall season and spring season. The fall season consists of 8 games and playoffs at the end of the season. The spring season consists of 6-8 games but no playoffs. Games are played on Saturday and/or Sundays, they can play both days in a weekend, this does not happen every weekend. They will not have more than 8 games per season. U13 and above teams may not play in a Fall league due to kids playing on school teams, this will be decided on a team by team basis, after tryouts when the roster has been decided. Most teams play in the LANCO Youth Soccer League.

Uniforms

The Elite team uniform consists of two jerseys, shorts, and two pair of socks. This cost is NOT included in the registration amount.

Tournaments

Elite teams will participate in 2 tournament per season. Tournaments are picked by each team's head coach, normally before the season's league play begins. 

Indoor

All Elite teams will be participating in an indoor training and/or a winter season. Each coach will determine what the team participates in based on what their team needs to work on over the winter. This is played at one of the local indoor arenas.

Financials

Cost is approximately $500 plus uniform cost for the entire year for U12 age teams and below. That price includes: Fall & Spring Seasons, 2 tournaments, team equipment, field paint and maintenance. You may have extra out of pocket cost for an extra tournament each season if you child's team goes to an extra tournament. The U13 and above individual price will vary per team depending on if the team is a indoor/spring only team or also playing a fall league or fall tournaments, challenger cups, state cups, or other events. This will all be finalized after tryouts once the coaches determine what is best for the team.

Tryout Procedures

See the Try-Out page for procedures.

If you missed tryouts for your child, please contact the elite coordinator ASAP. Your child may be considered, but ONLY to round out a team roster if the positions are available. For more information contact the elite coordinator (see contact us page).

Rosters

All age brackets U9-U12 will have a maximum roster of 14 players. U13 and above teams will have a roster between 16-18 players. All rosters, no matter what age group, are approved by the board members prior to acceptance being sent out. 

Coaches

Head coaches for any PMSC Elite team must be a USSF licensed coach at the minimum of an 'E' license. The club will pay for this licensing if you commit to at least one year of coaching afterward. A coach and asst. coach will be chosen every year, even if the coach was coaching for the previous year, they still have to re-apply the next season. The PMSC Board Members will review all coaches’ applications. We will then proceed with interviews to make our decision.

For any other questions, please contact the Elite Coordinator (see "contact us" page above).
