Tryout & Player Selection Philosophy

Pinecrest Premier Soccer Club is interested in serious soccer players who are dedicated to soccer and committed to excellence. Please click here for full information on the competitive program. Tryouts are held once a year immediately following the conclusion of the Florida State Cup Tournament. Players must tryout for their calendar birth year age group only.


The appropriate age group coaches have control of the player selections for their teams, with final approval from the DOC. Additional coaches may serve as evaluators to assist the team coaches. Our coaches have been carefully selected, and the coaching assessment of players is what Pinecrest Premier  relies on for player selection. These trained coaches are looking to pick the BEST possible players to create the best possible team.

Individual players selected to Pinecrest Premier Competitive Teams will be notified at the conclusion of the tryout process. A confirmation and commitment by the player to join PPSC will be required at that time. After a coach has all of that team’s player commitments, the Official Tryout Player Selections will be posted on the website’s tryout information page.  The selections will be posted by player bib number, not by player name.
