Deciding on a club? Please read about Ohio South's Player's Right to Choose. Keep in mind Clubs cannot "Require that a player immediately commits to joining that team, club or association of teams at the conclusion of the tryouts." (18.3.5). You have time to look around, consider your options, attend other club tryouts, and the right to choose your club and team, so come visit us at Cincinnati West Soccer Club to see what we have to offer. You will be impressed. With over 60 teams, join the over 700 other CWSC players and families that come back year after year to CWSC because of our player, team, and family-friendly philosophy.
Player check-in 30 minutes prior to your session.

We offer different levels for all players. We offer teams that play in the lower level of GCSL up to the highest level of OSSL/MRL. There is a place for everyone in our Club! We have some players that want to stay together and others who want to play at the Elite Level with advanced training/coaching. We offer top level trainers and coaches that are licensed, have many years of experience coaching at a high level (including High School and College) as well as former college and even professional players! We have a great track record of placing players into the college program of their choice to continue their academic and athletic careers. Our goal is to fit the needs of all players!
CWSC offers all this at an affordable price. Our fees are significantly lower than other clubs in the Greater Cincinnati Area. How is this possible? We simply do not have overhead as a club. We are also a non-profit organization, where all of our money goes back to the players and providing them with the tools and resources they need to be successful.
How do I register, and where is the schedule?
The CWSC Tryout Schedule has been posted on our website and the Tryout application is open. Please visit www.Cincinnatiwestsoccer.com to register! It's best to register online at least 10 hours before your child’s first tryout so they will be on the original tryout evaluation sheet and don’t have to be an add-on.
What if I can’t make all of the tryout dates?
Please make sure you register your child even if your child can not attend the tryouts. All players must be registered in order to be selected for a team. We recommend that the player attend all sessions for their age group. However, one tryout session is better than none! The more sessions they can make the better as it will be more beneficial for the player and the evaluators. If a player can’t make any of the sessions, please email our Director of Coaching, Kevin Spraul at: firstname.lastname@example.org
What team am I trying out for?
All players will be trying out for the highest level team in their age group. Players born in 2002 or earlier are eligible to play up a year. Coaches and evaluators will place players on the team that best fits their talent.
What if I need to change something on my child's application?
If you need to change anything on your application just email email@example.com with the change, DO NOT submit another application.
How will I know if I made a team or not?
There is a process when coaches make selections. All Players will be notified one way or another via email or phone call. Offers can start as early as the conclusion of the 1st session. Please allow us up to 6 days following the last tryout session to be notified.
What if I don’t want my child playing on the team that offered my child a position?
You have to!!! There is no way around it, we are forcing your child to play on a team they don’t want to play on!!!! :) No, but seriously we would never force someone to play on a team they didn’t feel was the right fit for their kid. You can simply tell the coach, thanks, but no thanks, you feel your child is a better suited on a lower team. We encourage and think it is in the best interest of a child's development to play on the highest level team possible.
Once I receive my offer, how long do we have till we have to decide?
Due to the high volume of children interested in playing for CWSC, we allow families up to 24 hours to make a decision. Unfortunately, once that time frame expires, we will move to the next player.
What if we are trying out at other clubs, and can’t make a decision within 24 hours?
We understand that there are many options out there that may be a good fit for your child and we appreciate that CWSC was one of those options. Our goal is to find players and supportive families who believe in our model of player development, our coaches, and our approach to youth club soccer as a whole. Unfortunately, in order to be fair to all players, we are unable to extend this time frame if your family isn’t ready to make a decision.
What happens when we accept an offer?
Once all team offers are completed and the team is formalized, the Head Coach or Team Admin will reach out to the team to welcome you and ask for a $75 deposit to secure your spot on the team. Those deposits will be sent to the Team Admin or the Head Coach, whichever handles the team finances. This deposit will be a down payment for your upcoming Team fees and this deposit is non-refundable.
How much are club/team fees?
Fees vary for every age group and team. Total cost per season depends on the league and tournaments your team plays in, where you train, and if you have a club staff member for training. If you have additional questions about expected costs, please email our Director of Coaching, Kevin Spraul: firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT TO EXPECT AT OUR TRYOUTS:
The Director of Coaching, Director of Player Development and the CWSC training staff run tryouts with our CWSC coaches assisting and evaluating players at the appropriate age group. While players are encouraged to compete vigorously and do their best, the staff and coaches make the ‘tryout atmosphere’ as relaxed as possible so players are comfortable. The Director of Coaching, our training staff and coaches all collaborate to evaluate each player, with the specific age group coaches putting together the rosters with input from the Director of Coaching. Coaches will notify all players, inviting players on teams within the next week after the final tryout session for each age group. We will attempt to place all players at our tryouts on a team in CWSC.
The goal of the club is to develop players to their fullest potential and desire. Each player will be placed in an environment to maximize learning and development. This means that player movement between teams is encouraged, because at different stages of their development, players will benefit from different levels of speed and intensity in regards to training. It is important that players train and compete against other players of like focus and ability to ensure a proper rate of individual player and team development. However, CWSC does not force players to move up to the next level team should they be selected to do so through the tryout process. The decision to move forward to a higher level team is totally up to the player and her/his parents. Regardless of placement, every CWSC player receives appropriate training based upon his or her developmental needs.
For any questions about our tryouts, contact our Director of Coaching, Kevin Spraul
