Team Formation

Teams will be formed by Euro FC's Director of Coaching and Technical Director, and rosters will be announced during the final two weeks of February.

  • Euro FC's Competitive program does NOT use tryouts to form teams
  • Players aged 8U thru 19U are invited to register for tournament play
  • Ages may be combined at the discretion of the Directors
  • Competitive levels of the teams will be decided upon by the Directors prior to tournament registration


All Euro FC teams are coached by professional coaching staff provided by our coaching provider TetraBrazil, and selected by our Director of Coaching and Technical Director.  Some of the details of the Euro FC training program are as follows:

  • Teams will be coached according to the Club's curriculum.
  • 9U-12U teams will train on M/W or T/TH during the early practice.
  • 13U-19U teams train Monday through Thursday during either the early or late practice.
  • Training only options are available for players new to soccer, or those who wish not to participate in tournaments.
  • Attendance is strongly encouraged, and absences may affect playing time.


The Euro FC Competitive program is a training and tournament based program.  Below are some details regarding this program.

  • Tournaments are typically in the Twin Cities and held on the weekends.  
  • The new Euro uniform kit (details below) will be required to participate in tournaments.
  • Practice gear will be available for the players.  Wearing practice gear is strongly encouraged.  For the competitive program, practice colors are royal blue shirts, and royal blue or black shorts.
  • There is a Training Only option for players that do not want to, or can not commit to playing tournaments.  Training Only players will automatically be placed into Euro's guest player pool.
  • All teams will be registered for and participate in 4 tournaments, including the season ending USA Cup Weekend (9U-10U), or the USA Cup Week (11U - 19U).
  • Again this year - tournament fees for 4 tournaments will be collected at time of registration.  This is being done to:
    • Ensure a minimum number of tournaments for all teams
    • Simplify the job of team manager (no longer responsible for collecting tournament fees)
    • Ease the financial burden on families of tournament fees by allowing them to be paid as part of the registration's payment plan
    • Please Note: This year, we are NOT collecting USA Cup individual fees, and those fees will be payable directly to NSC for those players participating.
  • IF teams choose to participate in additional tournaments, they can work with their team manager to collect fees and register for additional tournaments, as done in previous seasons.
    • Coaching coverage will need to be coordinated with the club
    • Coaching coverage for additional tournaments cannot be guaranteed
  • Euro FC's Director of Coaching and Technical Director will select the the tournaments for teams to play in.
    • Not all teams will play in the same tournaments due to different age groups offered, and different competitive levels for various tournaments.
    • It is necessary for the Club to coordinate the tournaments teams will play in due to the complicated logistics and cost of coaching coverage.
  • Tournament Dates:  Below are the weekend dates that tournaments will be played for Summer 2019.  Some weekends may have different tournaments available to play in.  Which tournaments played in by each team will ultimately be determined by our Director of Coaching (DOC), in collaboration with team managers.  Two important points:

1.  The USA Cup has various restrictions on who can play the week and who can play the weekend.  All teams 11U level and above should plan to play the USA Cup Week, as the weekend is a C1 only tournament for the older ages.  All teams 10U and below should plan on playing the USA Cup Weekend.  These are default expectations for USA cup week, but individual teams can discuss week vs weekend, and request a variance.  This variance would have to be approved by the DOC.

2.  Each team will be able to pick between the weekend of May 25th-27th or May 31st- June 2nd.  We realize that time of year has more conflicts with vacation, spring school sports, and end of school year activities; therefore, we have built a little flexibility into the schedule here.  We have also avoided early season tournaments to lessen conflicts with end of school year activities.  If teams desire to play in tournaments earlier, they can request permission to register for an additional tournament via the DOC.  If coaching coverage is available, we will allow for this, but coaching travel expenses, food, hotels and tournament registrations will have to be paid by the teams in advance.

  • May 31 - June 2: St. Croix (9U - 17U)

Soccer team registration is determined by a birth year rule.  

The current soccer year is used to determine soccer age.  The current soccer year runs from August 1st to July 31st each year.  So the fall season of each year is the time when a player's soccer year advances.  The year used to determine soccer age for the upcoming session is the higher number of the current soccer year.  The current soccer year is 2018-2019 - please see MYSA's Birth Year Chart for details.  Essentially, you take the current soccer year and subtract the birth year of your child (eg.  a child born in 2014 gives 2019-2014=5.  5U would be the soccer age)

The result will give you the "U" soccer age the player can participate at.  The rules follow a soccer age and under participation guideline, i.e. 5U means soccer age players 5 and under can play on a team.  For the younger age groups, we try to keep kids on squads with the designated soccer age listed.  Occasionally players can play up a year, in the Tiny Tots program.  A player can never play "down" (at a lower soccer age) in tournament play, but may be allowed to do this in the Mini Kicks and Tiny Tots programs.  As a rule, teams in these programs are formed based on age, but players move around a bit based on need to fill team slots.
