CUSA Tryout Registration​


Tryout registration is open. 

Tryouts in Ohio are taking a different form this year.

Players must register for tryouts in order to receive an offer from CUSA.

Even if you are already a CUSA player you must register above in order to be eligible to receive an offer for the 2021 season.

On May 26th, CUSA are permitted, and will do so, to offer current existing CUSA players, spots on a CUSA team for the 2021 season.


If you are a player from outside of CUSA but are not currently registered to an Ohio South Competitive club, then you may also receive an offer on May 26th. 

On May 29th CUSA may offer spots for the 2021 season to ANY player regardless of what club, if any, they are currently registered with.

Q: Why are the tryout procedures being changed?

A: Given the current Ohio Department of Health restrictions on Mass Gatherings, the Ohio South BOD wanted to develop tryout protocols that will permit clubs, teams, players, and parents a process for moving forward towards the 2020-2021 season.


Q: What happens if the Ohio Department of Health loosens their restrictions on Mass Gatherings and clubs are permitted to hold physical tryouts? Do the new recommendations still apply?


A: Should the Ohio Department of Health loosen their restrictions on Mass Gatherings to the point that clubs are permitted to physically host tryouts, the Ohio South BOD’s will review its tryout recommendations and amend accordingly.

Tryout Frequently Asked Questions

What should my player bring to tryouts?

Please bring a soccer ball, a water bottle, shin guards, and soccer cleats.

How long do I have to decide if I want to accept a roster spot?

For Summer tryouts, we would expect acceptances the same night otherwise we will have to offer spots to other players.

For Winter tryouts, as teams are already formed, this is a more relaxed process with a week or two being the norm. 

Are teams already preselected?

Tryouts are open and each player is given the chance to make the most appropriate team.

Will my team have a professional or parent coach for the season?

Your team will have professional trainers and a professional head coach.

What will happen after tryouts?

for Summer Tryouts, you will likely receive an offer the first or second night which you will be expected to accept or decline that night. Based upon this decision you will receive paperwork and begin the registration process. 

For Winter Tryouts, the club may invite your child to train with a specific team during the following weeks to properly observe them, from there a decision will be made and you will be notified by the Age Group Director of Coaching.

Who can I contact if I have other questions?
