This is NOT a "Win at all cost" team. Our objective is based on progress throughout the season and is focused on player development. We, the coaching staff, believe in a phased approach to the long-term development of our team and want to expose your son to a higher level of play. Our overall goal is developing his fundamental soccer skills and instilling good sportsmanship, all while having fun and building friendships with teammates. We will always encourage and support our teammates on and off the field. We will respect the game of soccer and its officials and we will ALWAYS expect good sportsmanship from our coaches, players, and spectators.
 The Cobras 99 hold tryouts in May and June with a minimum of three posted dates. After the team has been picked, we typically have one practice per week in July and two per week in August (typically lasting approximately 1 1/2 hour each leading up to our first game in September. There is also a financial commitment ($175 - $250) to cover uniforms ($60.00), equipment, referee and league fees that are required.
