What is Interplay you ask?  Interplay is a program that competes against other AYSO regions in the Bay Area as well US Club Soccer programs in primarily Northern California. This past year our teams competed in the Bay Area Fall Soccer League formed by AYSO Area 2C to explore the idea of competing against more competitive teams from the surrounding AYSO and CYSL program.  See our Interplay Page for more information.

Select and Interplay Tryout Dates 2016

After a fair amount of discussion we have made the decision to hold the select and interplay tryouts at the same time. Because of the timing of the Interplay season which primarily plays on Sundays we are moving the tryouts into November and are planning on holding them on the following dates and times.

***PLEASE NOTE LOCATION CHANGE TO COLLEGE PARK TURF FOR SUNDAY NOVEMBER 6th***

  • Sunday November 6th
    • 2004 and up from 1:00pm to 2:15pm at College Park Turf
    • 2005 and 2006 from 2:15pm to 3:30pm at College Park Turf
    • 2007 and 2008 from 3:30pm to 5:00pm at College Park Turf
  • Saturday November 12th
    • 2004 and up from 12:00pm to 1:15pm at Hidden Lakes Turf
    • 2005 and 2006 from 1:30pm to 2:45pm at Hidden Lakes Turf
    • 2007 and 2008 from 3:00pm to 4:15pm at Hidden Lakes Turf
  • Sunday November 13th
    • 2004 and up from 12:00pm to 1:15pm at Hidden Lakes Turf
    • 2005 and 2006 from 1:30pm to 2:45pm at Hidden Lakes Turf
    • 2007 and 2008 from 3:00pm to 4:15pm at Hidden Lakes Turf
  • Saturday November 19th

    • 2004 and up from 2:00pm to 4:00pm at Hidden Lakes Turf

For players, please apply here

Times and location of the tryouts need to be determined though we will trying to use Hidden Lakes field as much as possible in the same relative time tables as currently posted on the Select and Interplay page.

The rationale for this decision is that it gives players form house and Interplay equal opportunity to compete to play on Interplay or select teams and avoids the confusion from last year whereby players were selected to play on both teams and had conflicting priorities.  This message is going out to both Interplay and select coaches – we will use one coach sign up form where it will be amended to add whether you’d like to be considered for select/interplay or both.  If you have already submitted an application I will just add your preference to the data that already exists.

On the plus side, the added time between now and tryouts give us the ability to recruit additional players.

Much like last year we will look to have Interplay selection on Saturday November 19th while it is a few days later we will look to complete the select draft on Sunday November 20th with player announcements happening shortly thereafter.

A note will go out to all players indicating the change in timing and promoting that they sign up and come and tryout.  However, you will be their most impactful source of encouragement so please make an effort to spread the word to your players. We will provide an electronic copy of a flyer for you to distribute in the next day or so.

Select/Interplay Coordinators

Silent Saturdays are coming! September 24 is our first one of the season.

What does that mean? Silent Saturday is designed to give the players an opportunity to play a game in a quiet, peaceful environment. This includes ANY coaching from coaches and especially the sideline for U10 and up. U6 and U8 parents are asked not to coach or cheer. You can make a game strategy up and give your players their location on the field then sit back and enjoy the game.

Support your team on Silent Saturday in a creative way! Have your parents and families wear your team colors, bring rally towels, make banners – sign – flags with players names on them. Just no noise. Get siblings involved! Get together and make a plan as a team on how you’ll encourage and support your players and team on the two Silent Saturdays this season.
Silent Saturday is for everyone – including our kids and parents. If you think you are going to have a hard time keeping your sideline quiet, bring a bag of suckers and hand one to every person on the sideline BEFORE the game. Let them know this is to help them if they start feeling the urge to scream, pop that sucker in their mouth! It’s a light hearted reminder that everyone needs to be quiet for one game.
This link from another AYSO region is a good read and explains the process perfectly. Please take a moment to read it through. Silent Saturday – Coach Advice
