Open Tryout FAQs

Who should tryout for Rush Soccer?

Competitive soccer requires much more of a commitment than recreational soccer. Competitive soccer players need to be focused and highly motivated. They must possess a strong desire to learn the game from experienced coaches and to surround themselves with other focused and highly motivated players.

How do I sign up for tryouts?

Please fill out the waiver form as well as player/parent code of conduct forms above. Bring them to the check in tent at the field on the day your child’s age group is playing. Printing forms and having them ready will help us expedite the registration process at the field, however we will have copies available if you need to fill them out there.

Will a session ever get cancelled due to weather?

We live in Hilo….any weather is possible. While it would take extreme weather to cancel any of our sessions, this has happened in the past.  Please know that while cancelling a session is extremely rare, player safety comes first. In the event that a training session is cancelled, team managers will attempt to contact all registered players. For this reason, it is important that the email address and phone number you put on the registration form is the best one to contact you with. 

What if I am sick or have to miss tryouts?

In the case of all unavoidable conflicts, please contact the team head coach or the age group director. He/she will advise you on how best to proceed.

What do coaches look for during tryouts?

All players will be evaluated based on their technical and tactical ability as well as their physical abilities. Players who exhibit a strong work ethic and who display a respect for the game, coaches and fellow players will show well.

What do I need to bring?

All players should bring:

  • soccer cleats,
  • shin guards,
  • a water bottle,
  • an appropriately sized soccer ball and
  • weather-appropriate training clothes. 

Returning RUSH players: Please wear your club uniform or training gear!

Please be sure to print, sign and bring your medical release/liability waiver as well as player and parent codes of conduct  with you to the first session.
