Shin guards MUST be worn to participate.
Players should not wear apparel with logos from their Select, Club, or other soccer team.

Q: What if my child cannot make all or any tryout sessions?
We like to see all kids at as many tryouts as possible, but also realize that schedules do not always work out. Please contact us and we will put you in touch with the coach to discuss any conflicts.
Q: 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.
Q: How do I find out if my child has made a team?
The goal of the club is to publish tryout results within 48 hours of the completion of the final tryout session for each age/gender. Coaches will contact the parent or guardian listed on the registration form to confirm their interest in playing with CCA. The final decision on player placement will be made by the respective Coach and Technical Director.
Q: How many players do you plan to accept?
Several of our existing teams may be adding players. We may also explore adding new teams. However, it is difficult to predict the number of players needed, number of total teams, and breakdown of age brackets until tryouts have been concluded.
Our focus is to provide boys and girls with a great playing experience at an affordable cost. We realize for kids to learn and develop, it requires commitment on behalf of players, coaches and parents. Thus, we are looking for competitive players and dedicated coaches. For Central California Aztecs (CCA) to field a team, we follow two basic guidelines:
I. Players have to be committed to learning and developing in the game of soccer.
II. Coaches must be passionate about developing soccer players and vetted by existing CCA staff.
We want consistency in both players and coaches. If we cannot meet these two requirements, we will not field a team just for the sake of growing the club and collecting funds.
Q: What does a soccer season look like?
The fall season usually runs from August to early November, while the spring season usually runs from mid-March to late May. Over the winter, indoor games and conditioning do occur. This helps children further develop their footwork, strategy play, and other identified areas.
During the fall and spring seasons, your child will practice two or three times a week, usually for two hours each evening. The frequency of practices will depend on the team members’ ages and coach’s recommendations.
Teams will also play in two to four soccer tournaments each fall and spring season. These tournaments take place over the weekend. Many of the tournaments we attend take place anywhere between Santa Clarita, Los Angeles, San Bernadino area, out-of-town tournaments will likely require an overnight stay.
