Arlington Travel Soccer (ATS) is geared toward growing and developing premier level teams and players. The staff, coaches, and developmental programs are of the highest quality. ATS makes a year-long commitment to our professional coaching staff and to our players. We expect ATS players and families to make the same full-year commitment.

ATS holds annual age-group open tryouts in the spring to form teams for the next soccer year (fall-spring). The goal of these tryouts is the selection of players for all teams within ATS. To fund the ATS program, each player pays a club fee to play on a travel team. This player fee covers ATS’s salaries, league participation and referee fees, portions of the ASA’s administrative expenses, State and National registration fees, player insurance, player development programs and other Travel Program expenses. Additionally, players need to pay team fees.

Travel Tryout Criteria & Format

  please read


  Travel Soccer Tryout Format 2016-2017


How are players evaluated and selected for travel teams? Players are evaluated using several criteria. The three most important areas of evaluation are technical ability, speed and character.

  1. Technical:
    • Can a player handle the ball technically under pressure and in tight spaces?
  2. Speed:
    1. Pure Speed—Is the player fast from point A to B?
    2. Technical Speed—Can the player handle the ball under pressure?
    3. Tactical Speed—Can the player make fast decisions with and without the ball?
  3. Character:
    1. Does the player like to compete?
    2. Is he/she a positive influence on the group?
    3. Does the player possess a high work rate?
    4. Does the player bring passion and energy to the game?

Players are evaluated in these and other areas and, if selected, placed on teams that best meet each player’s developmental needs. Players that are not selected for the travel soccer program will be provided with information on other Arlington soccer programs and teams.
