Message from Directors of Coaching
Dear Soccer Player and Families,
Tryouts are upon us already. Whether you are a veteran of Vikings FC or an individual interested in exploring our soccer programs, tryouts are always an exciting and often stressful time. Each year, the level of competition gets tougher and tougher. Last year presented tremendous challenges to our club due to the transition into the birth year mandate where all teams were to be formed based on the birth year of a player, rather than their grade. Now that we are settled in, we feel that the 2017 team formation process will be smoother with less confusion.
Often we get questions about whether or not players can "play up" an age group. The answer is simple, yes. At Vikings FC, we do our best to form viable teams starting at U14/U15 and working our way down all the way to our developmental U7 groups. Depending on our team needs, players may be invited to play up and fill out rosters or depending on the ability of a player, he/she may be asked to challenge themselves up an age group. This is all at the discretion of the Directors of Coaching in conjunction with the Vikings Board of Directors. Hugo Miraldo (Boys Director) and Joe Albanese (Girls Director) are always available to answer questions during the process.
To say we are excited is an understatement. Never have we had such a great and energized training staff, supported by an amazing new Board of Directors in transition. Young parent leaders are stepping up to take the reigns from individuals who have seen our club grow in leaps and bounds in terms of quality. It is very hard to put into words how appreciative we all are of our parent leaders who work tirelessly for our community soccer programs.
