Why join the Hurricanes family?

  • Year round commitment to players - Academy and select receive training opportunities all year with indoor training from January to spring included in with their registration. This last winter saw all players age 7 to 17 receive opportunities for turf time once a week.
  • Two team training sessions per week in season with a 3rd technical session offered to all teams. Goalkeeper training is also offered, seldom found in clubs in this area.
  • All levels of play welcomed. The club ranges from rec level age 3 to Midwest Regional League play for high schoolers. The club is proud to promote the love of the game for anyone wishing to play and at the same time providing high level training for our most serious and talented of players. We are a multi level club but at our heart we are a community.
  • More than just a sports club. Many of our teams are very tightly knit: They train together and socialize together. Experiences with this club will shape their lives going forward and we do our best to make the experience as fulfilling as possible. From backyard bbq's to weekend retreats to weekly yoga sessions, our families are our club and our club is a family.
  • Each select team has a tournament fund that allows up to 4 tournaments between fall and spring: No other clubs offer that amount.
  • Our fields are second to none. With 10 fields at Akzo Nobel and 7 at Spring Green nobody in the area or state can offer the same. The village of Howard takes great pride in the upkeep of the fields and we are able to practice weeks earlier than most clubs in the spring.
  • Opportunities for our athletes beyond soccer play. With our junior coaching initiative and our referee program we offer an avenue for the kids to mentor younger players, see the game in a different light, learn the value of volunteering their time and growing as a person.
  • Licensed coaches with high quality trainers added regularly. Under the guidance of DOC Eric Gebhard the club is hard at work adding to our coaching staff with young area college and professional players.

Alternative Tryout Dates:

If your son or daughter is unable to make the above tryout dates assigned to their age group, please contact Scott Frisch at scottingb@gmail.com to come up with an alternative tryout date. Thank you!


Can't Make Tryouts?

The best case scenario is for a player to be evaluated with the players they are competing for team placement. While not ideal, if a player is unable to attend the regularly scheduled tryout times they have a couple options:

  • Attend a make-up day, which can be used for those players who have conflicts with their scheduled tryout. (Make-up days listed in schedule above)
  • Attend a tryout for a similar age group.

Email Scott Frisch if you plan to attend one of the alternate Tryout Dates. 

Please make every attempt to attend the regularly scheduled tryout times.


The Tryout Process

  • Players should bring a water bottle and ball with them to the tryout.
  • Each age bracket will have 2 days of tryouts. Day 1 will be small sided games. Day 2 will be 9v9 or 11v11, depending on the age group.  
  • During tryout sessions, players will be evaluated on four key areas: 
    • Psycholgical
    • Technical
    • Tactical
    • Athletic Ability

Timeline

The following dates were decided by our governing leagues, East Central Soccer and Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association (WYSA)

  • May 17th = Open promotion: Period two weeks prior to the first allowable tryout date in which a representative of the club may initiate contact with the parent(s) of a player to promote the club.
  • May 31st = First allowable date of tryouts for U11 - U14 teams
  • June 7th = First allowable date of tryouts for U15+ teams
  • June 14th = First date that offers can be made at noon for U11 - U14 teams.
  • June 21st = First date that offers can be made at noon for U15+ teams.

Offers to Play/Team Assignments

  • The first date an offer can be made to a player is June 15, 2018 at noon (for U11-U13 players) and June 22nd at noon (for U14+players) 
  • A member of the United Hurricanes Board will send an email at noon on those dates to notify players.  Players offered a spot have 24 hours to respond via email if they accept or decline.  If no response is received after 24 hours, the club can then offer that spot to a player on the waiting list. All players will be contacted regardless of result.

Tryout selection will be based on three inputs:

  1. Tryout Personnel will include Challenger Coaches and other Assistant Evaluators - Assistant Evaluators will be derived from UH coaches who do not have a vested interest in the team they are evaluating
  2. Current Select Coach Input - Select Coaches will be asked to fill out an evaluation form on every player and these evaluations will be strongly considered in the team formation process
  3. Board - Team Formation Meetings -Any Board member with a vested interest in a team being evaluated, will step out of the room for their team formation

Expected Commitment

  • The regular competitive soccer season takes place in the spring.  Practices begin in early April and games begin the last week of April or first week of May.  Each team typically has one league game per week until the end of June.
  • Teams also have the option of playing a fall soccer season (when available).  After teams are formed following tryouts, each team will be surveyed to gauge interest if the team would like to play in the fall.
  • Teams practice twice a week during the season. 
  • United Hurricanes Club teams typically attend 3-4 tournaments (the entry fee for the tournaments is built into the registration fee). 
  • The club also offers winter training sessions (beginning in January) in which players can get extra touches on the ball. Teams usually have 1-2 training sessions per week during January through March.  Indoor Leagues and Futsol are available during the winter months.  The winter training program is encouraged but not required.
