2016-2017 Tryout Registration Instructions

By Staff , 05/07/16, 2:15PM EDT


Chattanooga FC Academy (CFCA) is pleased to announce its upcoming tryout and evaluation sessions for 1998-2008 birth year players. CFCA is offering a week of tryout options at several venue partners across the city as we continue building a club that all of the region can be proud of. 

Participants should arrive 30 minutes early to submit paperwork. A parent/guardian should accompany them to registration but plan to keep a distance of at least 50 feet during the tryouts.

All participants should bring a properly-inflated ball (size 4 for 2008-2005 birth years; size 5 for 2004 and older, shin guards and water or sports drink).
Each player will receive a CFCA shirt to keep. A $25 non-refundable tryout fee will be charged. Only one fee is charged, regardless of whether they attend one or both days.
All athletes who want to be considered for placement on a roster must be registered prior to attending tryouts. This is the same for current, former, and new players. All parents must provide a signed copy of the Waiver & Medical Release Form. If you are new to CFCA, a copy of the player’s birth certificate will be required. No proof of age document is required for existing members.

Click the REGISTRATION tab on the upper right. Do not use the Login link on the left.

If you are not adding a new player continue to the page where you are able to select an existing player already in the system.

Make sure all information is updated, particularly the grade your child will be entering in the fall.

Choose the program your child is interested in.

Travel Competitive is for players aspiring to be a part of CFCA’s Premier or Elite team. Teams will train and compete at a high but appropriate level. Out of town travel will be involved, but league and tournament play will follow a much better format with the creation of the Volunteer State League.
Local Select is a program that is designed to offer a higher training and game level than recreation soccer. The program does not carry the expense or travel of the Travel Competitive program. Teams will compete locally in some tournament play.
CIDP is for 2009 and 2010 birth years offering an accelerated level of training for players above the rec level. It stands for Chattanooga Identification and Development Program.
Complete Registration process, print receipt and forms, and bring copies to tryouts.
