2024/25 Savannah Competitive Tryout Information

Tryouts are FREE, and we enthusiastically encourage all interested individuals to attend. Signing up for tryouts is conveniently done online through the provided link. It's important to double-check all information for accuracy, as we'll rely on it for communication throughout the process.

We kindly request that everyone arrive 15-20 minutes before their scheduled tryout time. Upon arrival, please check in with your child to receive further instructions.

All players are required to bring a ball and an ample supply of water, as well as to wear a white or light-colored shirt, soccer cleats, and shin guards for all sessions. During tryout sessions, parents are strictly prohibited from entering the fields. We've observed that the tryout process can be less stressful for children when their parents are out of sight. However, we extend a warm invitation to all parents to observe from a distance, allowing them to witness the quality of our staff and program. We strongly encourage attendance at all tryout dates. It's straightforward: the more time we have to assess your child, the more accurate the evaluation will be.

If you are unable to attend a tryout or tryouts, please contact us @ sean@tnsocceracademy.com or call 901-603-1119.

2024-25 Savannah Cost Breakdown


Payment of Club Fees

  • Payment for the Deposit and Annual Club Dues must be made online by CC or by ACH through our club TeamSnap account. Deposits are non-refundable.

  • Payment options for Annual Club Dues are as follows: Paid in full, or installment plan. If choosing an installment plan, the remaining balance will be charged over 2 payments based on age group.

  • To remain in good standing with TSA, payment of the registration fee, club dues, and team fees must be received on or before their due date. A player is considered past due when either one of these payments is not received on the due date. For accounts that are one (1) month past due, there will be a $10.00 late fee. For accounts that are over 1 month past due, the player card will be pulled and a $20.00 reinstatement fee will be charged to return the player card plus the owed payment.

  • TSA reserves the right to hold the player card of any player whose team or club account is past due and suspend the player from any and all team and club activities including all training, skills, games, and tournaments until the past due balance is paid.

  • Players with outstanding balances from the prior season will NOT be issued a player card for the current season until this balance has been paid in full.

  • Any player that requests a release and has a past-due balance for either club or team fees will not be granted a release from TSA until all outstanding fees have been paid.
    All club fees are non-refundable.


Refund Policy

Players who commit and register for any TSA program, are then placed into the program based on this initial commitment. They assume a “spot” in the program that may not allow another player to participate. TSA then prepares an operational budget and begins organizational planning based on this commitment. This refund policy is in place to protect the players, the team, the coach, and the overall program. A policy through Regsaver (a 3rd party company not associated with TSA) is offered during the online registration process. Covered items include Illness, Injury (on or off the field), Uninhabitable Residence, Active Military Service (parents/guardian), Job Layoff (parents/guardian), Traffic Accident, Airline/Train/Bus Delay or cancellation. TSA does not receive any of the proceeds from these sales nor do we process claims. All claims are filed directly between the policyholder and insurer, as TSA does not oversee any of the insurance claim and approval process.

  • Club Deposits - Deposits are non-refundable
  • Annual Club Payments – Club payments are non-refundable.
  • MSSF Registration Fees – Not refundable through TSA. Once the league season has started, any refunds would have to be processed through MSSF.
  • Credit card processing fees are non-refundable.
  • Team Fees – Future team fees may be waived at the time of departure if all outstanding fees including club fees have been paid.
  • Uniform Fees – Not refundable through TSA. Once a uniform has been ordered, any refund request would go through Soccer.com.

Financial Aid

Financial assistance is available for those members who complete the Financial Aid Application and submit the required documentation supporting the need for financial assistance. Financial aid only covers the costs associated with Annual Club Fees and does not cover any costs associated with team fees or uniforms. All financial aid recipients must remain in good financial standing with the club, including team fees, follow the code of conduct, and attendance to training and games.


Long-Term Injury/Illness

Any TSA player who sustains a long-term injury and is unable to participate with their team for a period of more than 45 days, will be eligible to waive the fees associated with the amount of time unplayable. To apply for the waiver, participants must provide a signed medical report from a physician treating the injured or sick player.

Tryout Tips

Tryouts can induce significant stress for both young athletes and their parents. However, alleviating some of this stress is possible through proper preparation. Below, you'll find tips on what coaches will be assessing, and what they won't, during tryouts, which can aid in better readiness for your child. Remember, your child's technical abilities won't magically improve during tryouts, but these suggestions can enhance their success in crucial areas.

Encourage your child to approach tryouts with a positive mindset, prepared to exert effort and enjoy the process. It's essential that parents avoid burdening their child with undue pressure, as this can hinder their performance. Your behavior before and during tryouts can significantly influence your child's demeanor and performance. If you display nervousness, they may mirror it. Overloading them with information on the way to tryouts can be distracting, as can constant pacing and observation during the tryout process. These actions could adversely affect their performance and detract from their enjoyment of the experience. Our recommendation is to discuss the tips below with your child beforehand, ensuring they understand the expectations, and then support them in working hard and, above all, having fun.

Positive Behaviors

  • Players who focus and listen to the coaches
  • Players who have a positive attitude
  • Players who are respectful and encouraging
  • Players who are always moving/running without being told
  • Players who always compete without being told
  • Players who will physically challenge for the ball
  • Players who want the ball
  • Players who are confident & creative with the ball
  • Players who always work hard to win the ball

Negative Behaviors

  • Players who do not listen to the coaches
  • Players who have a negative attitude
  • Players who are not respectful and encouraging
  • Players who are always standing around
  • Players who do not compete
  • Players who do not physically challenge for the ball
  • Players who do not want the ball
  • Players who avoid the ball
  • Players who do not work hard to win the ball

Tryout Synopsis

Tryouts are inclusive events, open to all. Our organization holds a US Soccer Sanction and is a current member of Tennessee Soccer. During tryouts, players are evaluated on their skill, athleticism, attitude, and overall ability. The formation of teams within each age group depends on the number of qualified players present.

Each tryout session is attended by at least one Academy staff coach and administrator, who are available to address any inquiries. It's important to note that selection for a team or specific coach is not guaranteed from year to year. Should a scheduling conflict arise, parents can explore alternative tryout opportunities.

Following tryouts, coaches aim to notify all participants of their status within 48 hours of the final session's conclusion, although some teams may require additional time for thorough roster decisions. Players are encouraged to attend all tryout sessions and communicate any conflicts with the coach or administrator.

Final player selections are made without bias, considering factors such as race, color, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, political beliefs, or financial status. The Academy Coaching Staff holds full authority over player evaluation and selection, with administrative support from Academy Administrators.

Team rosters are constructed according to the coach's assessment of each player's current level, recognizing that young players develop at varying rates. As players progress, teams may be reorganized to support accelerated development.

Our commitment is to form age-specific teams based on the number of qualified players, ensuring opportunities for all to engage in competitive soccer. In cases where there aren't enough qualified players for a complete team, options such as double-rostering or age combinations may be explored to facilitate participation in the competitive program.
