RDA East Tryouts

RDA EAST TRYOUTS - 2020-2021

REGISTER HERE -  (Not current RDA players)

Goalkeepers should also sign up this way and email James Meara / Sterling Flunder directly indicating that the player is a GK.

We have now opened dates for the tryout process for the 2020-2021 season. While we're still not 100 percent sure we'll be able to have the tryouts starting June 1, we wanted to get a plan in place. If we must move the dates back, we will, but it's important that an interested player registers for one of the dates. We will be in constant communication with all families throughout the process.

Below you will see the following images and Information:

As an extra layer to the 2020-2021 RDA Tryout process, we have put together a video for prospective RDA players to work on at home and submit. With the uncertainty provided by COVID-19, we want to give an opportunity for players to work on the exercises at home and submit as a highlight video. This is not mandated / required and is up to the individual player if they choose to submit. This does not replace the in-person tryouts that we have scheduled for June, but rather adds a layer to the overall process. There is nothing that can compare to seeing a player in action, but this will go a long way to provide our staff with an insight into the technical competence of the prospective player.

The video does include some advanced exercises, so we ask that the prospective player does his or her best with what is showcased. If the prospective player is unable to do it all, that is okay, we ask that the player does what they can and send in the video for our staff to review.

- Parents must submit the video 
- No video will be used in any Riverhounds marketing

Once you submit the video, the RDA staff will view and provide feedback to you. This will start the communication between the family and staff and will allow us to be honest and transparent in the feedback provided. This will also give the family an indication on whether the staff sees the prospective player as a potential fit for the RDA.

When videotaping, please have the camera horizontal and make sure it is a clear picture. All entries will need to be emailed to the following contacts in the East:
