2018/19 ACS Classic Soccer Tryouts




AC Sandhills Classic Soccer is a dynamic of the Athletic Club which allows our athletes to compete at a higher level in the sport of soccer. 

Our Classic Soccer Program is the highest level of soccer available to the Sandhills area and ACS is proud to have a culture that encourages development of not only soccer players, but young adults. The AC Sandhills Soccer Curriculum is one that focuses on six main areas through all age groups; Technical Ability, Tactical Decision Making, Physical Fitness, Psycho-social Understanding, Principles of Play and last but not least FUN! Through these six specific focuses, AC Sandhills is able to create a foundation for the younger players in the program and build on that to make the players into well rounded athletes and individuals who enjoy working with their teams and have fun.

AC Sandhills Classic Soccer plays in multiple leagues around the state, and compete in both local, region and state wide tournaments and showcases. It is our goal to afford the opportunity of every player at AC Sandhills to reach their goals. Whether that be to compete at the next level or not, we want to make sure we layout the correct path to success.  

Players will try out in their age group.

 ACS Tryout Information


Where do I go when I arrive at Morganton Soccer Complex?
Players will check in at the concession stand, where they will
receive their numbered tryout t-shirt and will be directed to the field (by birth year).

Parents: After checking in your player, please remain on top of the hill throughout the tryout. 

What do the players need to bring to tryouts? All players need to bring a ball (size 4 for birth years 2010 to 2007 and size 5 for all other
years), shin guards, and water to all sessions.

When will the Coaches assignments be made public? The coaching assignments will be made public just prior to tryouts. We want to
make sure that we have the best coach with each team, so we will be evaluating based on sign-ups for tryouts.

The Tryout: Each participant will tryout within their birth year and will be led/evaluated by members of the coaching staff.  The participants will be led through a dynamic warm-up, a series of dribbling skills, one versus one and two versus two situations, small sided games and a variety of specialty skills such as finishing and goalkeeping.  Player evaluation will be based on the following areas: quality of first touch, physical speed, technical speed, game awareness, fitness, individual and group defending and attacking, coach-ability and more.

Selection Process: The coaches will meet after the tryouts each day to discuss the player’s performances and that day’s rankings. When
developing the teams, we will take in consideration the overall needs of the team, player history, team history and chemistry.

We will make every effort to place each player on an age appropriate team best suited for their development and experience and appropriate for their age. Placement in a suitable level of competition is critical to player development and to their overall enjoyment of the sport.

The Director of Soccer will have final approval over the rosters for each team.
