Nemesis FC: Tryouts!

It's hard to believe but it is that time of the year again...

Open tryouts for Nemesis FC 96/97 and Nemesis FC Dominion for the upcoming winter indoor seasons (Winter I & Winter II) and the 2013 spring outdoor season will be held during the next two weeks. The tryout schedule is as follows...

  • Monday, June 4th from 6:30p to 8:00p (Weatherby Lake),
  • Tuesday, June 5th from 6:30p to 8:00p (Weatherby Lake),
  • Thursday, June 7th from 6:30 to 8:00p (Weatherby Lake),

*The Weatherby Lake field is located at 8230 NW Potomac Avenue, Weatherby Lake, MO 64152. New players will need to fill out a short information form (forms available at try-out or via email).

U15 players may also attend the weekend KC Blaze tryouts where we will be conducting tryouts and evaluating players...

  • Saturday, June 9th from 6:00p to 7:00p (WMSL),
  • Sunday, June 10th from 5:00p to 6:00p (WMSL).

*ALL players will need to pre-register prior to these tryouts; Click here to register.

Attending all of the scheduled try-outs is not required; Try to make as many as you can. Obviously, the more you show up, the more likely you are to make an impression and get "noticed". There is no fee to try-out.

To be clear, this is an Open Try-Out; ALL rosters spots are up for competition. Roster spots will be offered throughout our try-out period (6/4 through 6/18). The final rosters for both teams will be announced and posted on June 18th. Once you are offered a roster spot, you will need to pay a $30 deposit to secure your spot on the team (credited toward your Winter I session fees). This is done to protect the team by requiring a monetary commitment; If a player accepts a roster spot but later backs out, the deposit is retained.

We will practice once a week throughout the winter (beginning in November), leading up to the spring season. To continue their growth over the winter months, players are expected to participate in winter league play. This last winter proved that this is an important time and that a measurable increase in individual and team skill can be achieved. Winter I fees will be due around mid-October with the season kicking off in November. Paperwork and fees for the spring outdoor season will be due in January. A uniform order will be placed in early October to ensure delivery by the start of the games. Information on that will be sent out closer to that time. Both teams MAY also play in a couple of November tournaments (H.I.T. and the College Showcase) to begin coming together as a team earlier.

Players are expected to Primary Roster with their respective "Nemesis" team. Select players will also have the opportunity to practice and/or play with the U17 Nomads or U19 Reign for more advanced coaching and college preparation. These potential players will be identified and given information about the options available to us. We will be adding a trainer(s) to our coaching team to give the boys better technical training to continue their advancement as individuals and as a team. We will continue to send our goalies to Keeper School so that they receive advanced, position specific training, regularly. Indoor practices will be held at TAZ; We will continue to practice at Weatherby Lake in the spring (Tuesday's and Thursday's). Individual and small group training is also available (fees paid to trainer).

They may also play at the KC Soccer Dome in each session (8 games) in the "HS Boys B Division". They will participate in 2 or 3 indoor tournaments. Dominion will play at Heartland in the spring in either Division 1 or 2, depending on seeding. They will participate in 4 or 5 tournaments during the spring season. State Cup is a possibility if the team comes together as expected.

They may also play in the Sports Lodge "High School Boys" indoor league during Winter I and Winter II; It is a combined 12 game season from November to March. This will be determined by interest.
