Welcome to Our Club

This year is quite a bit different from a tryout perspective. Per the Michigan State Youth Soccer Association and the Grand Valley Soccer Association guidelines in the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic, no club is holding an in-person tryout to determine teams for the 2020/21 season. Instead, Lakeshore Select can secure commitments from current players (those registered for the 2019/20 season) beginning June 1, 2020 for the 2020/21 season. We can also secure commitments from new players and/or players who played with a different club during the last season, beginning June 15, 2020.


If you have a player that currently plays for Lakeshore SC, please use the registration form below to express your interest in playing for Lakeshore SC for 2020/21. You may submit this now. We will select teams from the list and ask for commitments on or after 06/01/20. 

If you have a player who would be new to Lakeshore SC and would like to talk to one of our club representatives about joining Lakeshore SC, please use the form below to register your interest and we will contact you. You may submit this any time, but you cannot commit before 06/15/20.

Select Tryouts

Format and Guidelines

  1. Tryouts for each group will be ONE date/time, unless the player has been pre-approved to play up. In that case, the player will need to tryout out both nights in both age groups. 

  2. Selection Criteria: The Independent and Coach Evaluations of each player contribute almost exclusively to the selection of teams based on soccer ability. The rank-order list is used to select approximately half of the team, while the remainder is selected at the coach's discretion, subject to additional criteria. This table summarizes the required number of selections based on the rank-order list at each age group.

  3. Coaches can then draw from the list of tryout candidates as they deem appropriate to fill out the roster, with the caveat that selections should be within 5 places of the GVSA maximum roster size limit from the ranked list. For example, the maximum roster for U11 is 16, so selections should be from the top 21 ranked players.

  4. Please pre-register for tryouts by following the link on the "Register Now" button at the top of this page.
