2020-21 Team Formation

SUMMER 2020 TEAM FORMATION DATES, TIMES, & Locations

We will be holding **IN-PERSON** evaluations for all players interested in joining an FC Lincoln team for the 2020-21 club season. Players who were on an FC Lincoln team during the ending 2019-20 club season do not need to be evaluated for a 2020-21 team. This process applies only to those players who would be changing clubs. 

To participate in an **IN PERSON** evaluation, please do the following:

  1. Register for the **IN PERSON** evaluation session by completing the form link below.  There is no charge to be evaluated.
  2. If you receive an offer, you will have 4 days to accept or decline the offer.     

Evaluation Events!

Option 1: Sign-up and attend one of  our scheduled evaluation sessions. Sessions are for all birth years 2002 - 2010.

Option 2: Contact us to attend one of our regularly scheduled training sessions the week of July 6th - July 10th.

**New** Players

For those wishing to move to another club  

Communication: Starting July 2nd, all unregistered players and their parents/guardian may contact FC Lincoln to indicate that they may be interested in discussing possible Team Formation offers. Per NSS existing rules, parents can always initiate contact with a Club at any time (including prior to July 2nd) to seek general information, and the Club may respond to such initiated contact (including prior to July 2nd). 

You may use the link on this page to initiate contact with us at ANY TIME. An FC Lincoln coach or administrator will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible! 

Clubs may not openly reach out to players who have not previously made contact with them regarding registration for the 2020-2021 soccer year.  

Player Evaluations: In lieu of tryouts, clubs may facilitate evaluations of interested players in ways that directly follow the Governor’s Directed Health Measures at that time:

  • If we have entered the initial phases of our Return to Play process, small group training and evaluations through that training may be allowed, with other restrictions in accordance with the current DHMs.
  • If we have not yet entered our Return to Play process, clubs can create other ways, virtual in nature to evaluate interested players.  

Offers: Regardless of the format of communications and evaluations of new players all new offers must be in writing, must remain open, at minimum, until 11:59 pm on the 4th day following the date the offer is made, and must otherwise comply with the Temporary Policy (for example, offers made on Monday expire at 11:59 pm on Friday or a later date and time specified by the Club).  

Current/Returning Players

For those players wishing to Re-Register with your current club

Clubs can extend re-registration offers to players who are currently rostered to their teams starting June 1, 2020. Clubs will have the option to set offer acceptance deadlines before June 30th, but no sooner than four (4) days after the offer is made.  

  • For example, a re-registration offer extended on Tuesday June 2nd must remain open through at least 11:59 pm on Saturday June 6th.
  • Clubs can elect a longer period as well, but the period for acceptance must be at least 11:59 pm on the 4th day following the date on which the re-registration offer is made.  
  • Unless specifically set forth in the re-registration offer, the re-registration offer remains open through 11:59 pm on June 30th.
