GLEN ROCK SHOOTING STARS
ANNUAL OPEN TRY OUTS
Thank you for your interest in the
Glen Rock Shooting Stars!
Glen Rock Shooting Stars Soccer Club is a non-profit organization administered by Glen Rock parents. The club was formed in the mid 70’s and today is made up of over 250 boys and girls (aged 7-18yrs old) along with 50 parent volunteers. Teams are trained by professional trainers, with UK Elite being the club’s primary training partner.
One of the club’s primary goals is to provide children with the opportunity to participate in a travel soccer program where they can develop and improve their soccer skills in fun but competitive environment and learn the virtues of hard work, respect, honesty, self-control, teamwork and sportsmanship. The Club also strives to promote the game in the Borough of Glen Rock and help develop talent for the Middle School and High School Soccer Teams.
Tryouts (mainly run by UK Elite) are held every spring for the following season (September-June). Attendance at tryouts is mandatory for all interested children. Teams train two days a week for 90 minutes each session and are invited to attend weekly skills and goalkeeping training sponsored by the club. They will play approximately 10 games in the Fall season (Sept – Nov) and 10 in the Spring season (March – June). All Shooting Stars teams will be playing in a Columbus Day weekend tournament in 2013. Additional tournaments are possible as each team sees fit.
The cost of Glen Rock Shooting Stars Soccer Club is composed of two separate fees: Club Fee and an additional Team Fee.
Club Fee The Club fee for the Fall and Spring season will be $280 and can only be paid via credit card. This fee is only one portion of the expense of Shooting Stars and will be payable upon notification of being selected for a team. This initial fee is intended to cover league registration fees, Club sponsored events including special skills and goal keeper sessions & clinics, one Club Sponsored Fall Tournament game day trainers (up to limit), insurance, field rental, lining & improvements, field light rental, supplies and administrative expenses. Uniforms must be purchased in addition to these fees.
Team Fees Each team will incur additional costs of approximately $470 to $500 per player (total for Fall and Spring). Teams that play in leagues other than Northern Counties will incur higher costs. The variation in team costs is due to many factors including, the size of the roster, usage of paid trainers, number of tournaments entered and other team specific activities (such as winter training). Off season activities are expected to be voluntary.
Financial Hardship A player will not be denied participation based on financial hardship. If finances are a concern, please contact the GRSS President, Declan Daly at Declansoccer@gmail.com.
