REPRESENTATIVE/TRAVEL

KSC Representative (Travel) Program provides an opportunity for qualified players to train and compete at a higher level of competition with players of similar abilities. KSC provides licensed professional coaches to provide quality instruction that challenges each player and to instill a love and respect for the game. We are committed to the ideals of fair play, sportsmanship, teamwork, and the development of character. We strive to ensure that every player who goes through the Representative program, achieves his or her  highest potential, both on and off the field. 

Teams are formed by age groups and they represent Kirkwood Soccer Club in Regional League Play, Tournaments, State and National Competitions, allowing players to reach their fullest potential. Identification of these players is through a carefully managed tryout process. The program is designed to attain both Player and Human Development.

Player Development: Development of the individual player within a team setting, attempting to maximize the soccer potential of all our players with age-appropriate training

Human Development: Using soccer as a microcosm of life to instill qualities such as cooperation, competition, leadership, discipline, hardwork and a healthy lifestyle

PLAYER SELECTION (TRYOUTS)

KSC conducts open tryouts in an environment designed for player safety while fostering quality evaluations. All players must participate in the tryout process (including returning players) and receive an evaluation to be eligible for a team roster spot. All players will be evaluated based on predetermined soccer attributes demonstrated during tryouts. The intent of the open tryout process is to roster the best players available in each age group to form the best teams possible. KSC carries up to three teams in each age-group. The difference in teams are based on players strength and weaknesses.
