New Prague Soccer Club Families,

Girls – 2011, 2012, & 2013
If your player is on the 15U Premier team, assessments do not apply to your player.
If your female player has a birth year of 2006 & 2007, they do not need to attend assessments. Based on registration numbers, their team is set If you want your player to be assessed, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and this can be discussed further.
If your player is a returning player and has a uniform from the previous season, have them wear one of their uniforms and bring the other.
Based on numbers and groupings, we will have players slip on their second jersey if needed in order to make even numbers. If you do not have a previous uniform, we will have numbered pinnies for them to slip on. These are very limited in quantity, so we ask that returning players wear their jerseys.
If you are unable to make the assigned assessment, please email the club at: email@example.com. A reminder that assessments will not be the only factor in determining a player’s placement. The team formation committee will be using coaching feedback, prior skill ratings, and the overall registration numbers to determine teams. We will make every effort to ensure that players are placed in accordance to their experience and skill level.
Unfortunately, we are facing the possibility of having to cut players this year. Our ability to ensure that teams are fielded at the correct level and appropriately rostered is determined by player numbers. Several age groups are facing limited numbers that make it challenging to roster two full teams. Attending assessments will help the club have as much information as possible in making these decisions. Please know that we plan to exhaust all other options before resorting to player cuts.
To avoid cutting players, the New Prague Soccer Club is seeking additional registrations for Boys in the following years: 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2012, & 2013. Space is first come, first serve.
Players do need to wear masks while attending the assessments, as well as wear all appropriate equipment: shin guards, cleats, etc. They also need to have their own water bottle and can bring their own ball. Make sure that they have a way to keep their things together. Concession stands will not be open, and the drinking fountains will be turned off.
Due to restrictions of the facility, parents are not able to come in and watch the assessments. You will have to remain in your vehicle in the parking lot or come back at 6:30 to pick up your player. We will be checking everyone in at the entrance of the Field House and will track attendance.
The address of the facility is: 3601 W 145th St., Burnsville, MN 55306.
Entrance into the Field House is through Golf entrance doors, going through the up ramp, counter-clockwise as you go into the dome.
We ask that groups put their stuff in an open space on North/East/South sides (but not East, where they enter). We will have staff help players as they enter, but let them know beforehand.
Players will exit through the emergency exits on the north side of the Field House, straight into sidewalk/parking lot where you can pick them up.
You must RVSP to the assessment date that your player will be attending – you will be able to submit more than one form if you have multiple players. The RSVP form is linked here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1me6gJdIcQ5fkzuF0uXBz2Pu9Us__OAKnld0kg2_X_QM/edit
Please email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
