Tuesday – June 1st  – 5:45pm to 7:15pm on Field 1

This message is for the attention incoming Grade 7/8 players for the Fall 2021/Spring 2022 Season.

HYSA will be holding a goalie assessment session for incoming grade 7 & 8 players only;

(i.e. if s/he will be in grade 7 or 8 starting next fall, they can attend the goalie assessment session)

HYSA does not conduct goalie assessments for grade 4 through 6 travel teams.

The goalie assessment is not a tryout but a way for your player to indicate
their willingness to play the position as well as to provide the age group
coordinators with an additional data point during select and travel team

HYSA believes youth players need to continue to develop as field players to
develop foot skills and field awareness.  As such, HYSA discourages players
to become full time goalies at the youth level.  It is HYSA’s policy that
for players that are interested in focusing on the goalie position, that
they have an opportunity to play both as a goalie and as a field player on
any team.

Please note any player that attends the goalie assessment must still attend
the 7th and 8th grade field player tryouts on May 25th and June 4th. Travel
team placement will primarily depend on the players evaluation during the
field player tryouts.

It is also important to note that players who do not attend the assessment
will still have an opportunity to play goalie during the season at the
discretion of their coach.

Goalie assessments will be run by Ethan Roberts – former collegiate
goalkeeper at Goucher College. Please reach out to Ethan if you plan on
attending. (email:  )
