The coaches selected to head the teams in an age group will have control of the player selections for their teams. The head coaches will base their decisions not only on two tryout sessions but will also factor in input from their previous head coach (if a coaching change has taken place) and the Directors. Additional coaches will serve as evaluators to assist the team coaches. While no evaluation system is perfect, Valley AFC believes that this is the best way to objectively select players for Xpress teams.
The Xpress intend to sponsor at least two teams in every age group, provided the pool of players supports it. Each team is assigned a highly qualified coach and has access to specialized coaching sessions (team training, technical training, goalkeeper training). Xpress teams play in competitive travel leagues, participate in strong tournaments and have the full support of the entire Valley AFC.
At the conclusion of each age group’s tryout period, individuals selected to Xpress teams will have their identification information posted on our website, and will be contacted by a Coach or Director. All players selected will need to go online to complete a player registration profile. At that time, the required deposit can be paid via credit card online, or brought to the Valley AFC Office. Failure to pay the required deposit will result in the player being removed from the team unless prior arrangements have been made with the Valley AFC Office.
