Register Before Your Tryout

Please make sure you register before you tryout. There are a number of reasons why we need players to register:

  • It shows a commitment of wanting to play for Cheltenham
  • Helps us anticipate turnout and manage to that
  • If we need to reschedule the tryout (due to weather, etc.) we have the ability to contact you and give an update
  • Waivers are signed online as part of the registration process and all players need to have a signed waiver prior to participating in tryouts
  • If your child is selected for the team, and have not registered/paid, our volunteer coaches are responsible for making sure your child gets registered and paid.  We'd like our volunteers to focus on the kids and not sending registration reminders.

If you want to register to tryout, BUT something is getting in your way, please contact us at TravelSoccer@CheltenhamSports.org.  We understand that things happen.  Let's work something out.

What if I Didn't Register, Can My Player Still Come to Tryout?

Yes, but please do your best to register.  If you do not, you will need to be prepared to sign a waiver when you arrive before your son or daughter tries out.
