Boys 2004 Birth Year Tryout Information

For boys born in 2004, the tryout process can be a little confusing.  The following information is provided to help families understand how teams are formed for this particular age group

All 2004 players (boys) will attend tryouts in May as well as in October.

Current 7th graders- Tryouts May 8 & 10 and in October

  • All current 7th graders should attend Bu15 tryouts on May 8 and 10. 
  • Fall teams for these 2004 players will be formed based on the May tryouts.
  • For fall, we will have the Bu15 team/teams comprised of rising 8th graders and any freshman that choose NOT to play high school soccer.

Current 8th graders- Tryouts May 8 & 10 and in October

  • All current 8th graders should attend Bu15 tryouts on May 8 and 10 for an initial assessment.  At that point, players can reserve a spot for the winter/spring season with the club by placing a deposit.
  • These players who will be entering high school in the fall will most likely be playing fall soccer with their respective schools.

October Tryouts for all 2004 players

  • In October, once the high school season is wrapping up, we will have our second round of tryouts that 2004 players will be expected to attend for the formation of Bu15 teams for winter/spring. Those freshmen that already put a deposit down in May will have a spot on hold.
  • The purpose of the October tryouts will be to complete an additional assessment of all players after playing most of their fall club or high school seasons
  • The fall Bu15 squad will be reassessed at the October tryouts, which will also include all freshmen that played soccer for their respective high schools.
  • After the October tryout, new teams will be formed and players will be placed on specified teams. These teams will be a mixture of 8th graders and freshman players.
  • In November/December, our Bu15 teams, along with our other high school teams, will ramp up for the winter and then spring seasons.
