Torpedoes Goals:

Our goal is to provide players with an environment in which they can improve their soccer skills, encourage a love of the game and most importantly to have fun. 

Tryout Procedure

Every effort should be made to attend the scheduled tryout session. If you cannot attend please advise the Head Coach (for existing players) or our Director of Coaching (new players) to schedule an evaluation.

  • There is no guaranteed spot on any team from year to year. Players are placed on a team and bound to that team for the duration of the subsequent fall-spring soccer season.

  • Independent trainers run tryouts and make assessments.

  • Players will be judged on athletic ability, speed and coordination, soccer aptitude, field awareness, attitude and other considerations.

  • The Torpedoes Board makes final determinations on rosters proposed by the trainers.

  • Tryout results will be emailed to players after tryouts.  We ask parents/players to accept/decline the position within 72 hours.

Structure of Teams
  • Teams are not divided up by ability until U9.  Teams will be play 4 vs. 4 during the fall at u8, with occasional 7 vs. 7 scrimmages, depending on the team.  During the spring, teams will either play 4 vs. 4 or 7 vs. 7, at the trainer's discretion.

  • U9 & U10 - Up to three teams of 10 players (maximum 12).  We expect to carry an “A Team” (Red), a “B Team” (White) and a “C” Team (Black). These teams play 7v7 on a small sided field.

  • U11 & U12 - Up to three teams of 12 players (maximum 14).  We expect to carry an “A Team” (Red), a “B Team” (White) and a “C” Team (Black). These teams play 9v9 on a small sided field.·      

  • Full-sided (U13 – U14) - Generally a maximum of two teams are formed with 16 to 18 players rostered on each team.  We carry an “A Team” (Red team) and a “B Team” (White team).  These teams play 11v11 on a full-sized field.

EDP Teams:

Our EDP teams are for advanced players who wish to put in a larger commitment to soccer. EDP teams will practice 3 times per week, play in the Eastern Development Program League, and play in higher level tournaments.

Facilities

We are proud of our excellent facilities, which include:

Estimated Fees
Practices

Players are expected to attend two practices per week during the fall season (mid-August to November) and spring season (mid-March to mid-June). Two practices per week will also be held during the winter (we understand conflicts with other sports are a possibility).Coaches will try to avoid conflicts as much as possible. 

Games

NCSA Teams: Boys play on Saturdays in Fall and Sundays in Spring.  Girls play on Sundays in the fall and spring.

EDP Teams: Games are scheduled by the team trainer while working with the opposing team. Most will be on Saturday or Sunday.

Tournaments

Teams attend two to three tournaments per year.  Typical tournament weekends are Labor Day Weekend (or the weekend before), Columbus Day Weekend (mandatory), and Memorial Day Weekend (mandatory).  U7 and U8 teams are exempted from mandatory participation in tournaments. Additionally many age groups form teams that play in summer tournaments. 

Conflicting Sports Policy

Players are expected to attend every scheduled Torpedoes practice and game.  If a player misses a practice or game due to a conflict with another sport during the fall season, the coach may reduce the player’s game time.  Excessive absence may result in a player’s expulsion from the Torpedoes.  The Torpedoes do not have a rule barring a player from playing soccer and another sport in the fall, but the club strongly suggests that the parents give a great deal of thought to whether playing multiple sports in the fall is a good idea for their child, particularly in the light of the commitment necessary to be a Torpedoes player.
