RISE players are continuously evaluated over the course of each season. Players are consistently evaluated during training sessions and games by the coaching staff. For returning players, their team placement is based on a full year of consistent evaluation from the technical staff. Tryouts are designed to allow new players from outside of the club to be evaluated alongside current and returning players. We recommend that both new and returning players attend all tryout sessions in order to be evaluated as thoroughly as possible.

For our Youth Academy, Competitive and Premier teams, RISE uses the player placement or player tryout process (depending on the player’s age) to evaluate new players from outside of the club. During these sessions, the Coaching Staff is looking for new players who can make an immediate impact on existing teams and continuing to monitor the development progress of RISE players. We seek players who are good teammates, have a growth mindset and can help improve our teams and the players around them. It is imperative that players coming to RISE add value to the club and its’ culture.

Whether you are a new player to RISE or a returning player you MUST REGISTER ONLINE prior to attending any player placement or player tryout sessions. There is NO FEE to register for Player Placement or Tryouts.

  • Player Placement sessions are held for Youth Academy teams for players with Birth Years from 2014 (U7), 2013 (U8), 2012 (U9), and 2011 (U10)
  • Tryouts are held for Competitive teams for players with Birth Years from 2010 (U11), 2009 (U12), 2008 (U13), 2007 (U14), 2006 (U15), 2005 (U16), 2004 (U17), 2003 (U18) and 2002 (U19)
