Club soccer tryouts in St. Louis are controlled by Missouri Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) who establish the rules regarding when and how tryouts can be conducted. In 2017, following years of discontent regarding recruiting efforts that occurred outside formal channels, the organization modified the rules regarding tryouts and recruiting. There is a special dispensation this year however. You can find a link and the current directives at the bottom of this story. Club Soccer Tryouts in St. Louis

MISSOURISOCCER.ORG Tryout Information
NOTICE: Regarding Kick-Arounds, ID Camps, Academy Sessions or whatever other crazy names that people make up for any session held prior to your District’s official tryout date. As of August 1st, 2017 the MYSA Board adopted a change that allowed participation in organized activities within other clubs. This allows advertising of these sessions to the general public and for a player to attend and be given general information about the club and its programming. This is done without the need of a signed Permission To Participate document.
AT NO TIME can a coach or club specifically target a player or team with its advertising or sales pitch and absolutely no offer of a roster spot can be offered, or monies collected, prior to the first day of tryouts. Targeting specific individuals or groups is recruiting and the rules against such still apply.
Parents & Players should carefully review all documentation that are to be signed as you may be held financially responsible for certain payments to clubs once signed regardless of your participation. A player that wishes to move to another club prior to tryouts, or outside of the tryout period, will be required to pay the appropriate transfer fee prior to such a move.
No competitive club or team can require payments be made to them from a current player prior to tryouts to “save a spot” nor is a player held to any commitment made before the date or without the proper execution of club documents for the new seasonal year.
These rules only apply to Competitive players & teams. Recreational teams cannot limit their players in any way from attending or participating in any events or activities that they should choose. All rules and notices for these matters can be found on the “Forms & Downloads” page that is accessed through the Player & Team Admin tab at the top of the website.
