OSS Competitive Soccer focuses on the development of technical skills at young ages to enable the player to compete at their highest potential and attain their personal goals.
In order to join a Competitive team your child must be at least 9 years of age to participate in Competitive Tryouts. Tryouts are held in June.
At tryouts, each child will receive an evaluation from Ocean State Coaches and 2 Higher Level evaluators.
Children will be evaluated on foot/ball handling, speed /agility, shooting, offence-defense performance, goalie skills, one touch, game awareness etc…
Competitive Coordinator and OSS Coaches will meet and review tryout evaluations. Scores are used to best place players according to their skill sets outlined in the OSS Policies and Procedures.
OSS teams practices two (2) days per week and have one (1) game either on a Saturday or Sunday. Teams may participate in several leagues such as:
RI Superliga, Massachusetts Premier League (Maple) and New England Premier (NEP). Teams also, take part in the National Youth Soccer Championship Series (RI State Cup and RI Presidents Cup) and various tournaments in RI, MA and NH
