The Premier Soccer Club for Northeast Georgia

Select 13U-19U

Select programs, called Athena for girls and Classic for boys, are designed for boys in the U13 - U19 age groups who desire a highly competitive level of play. We are fully staffed with professional coaches who have the experience and training to work with young players looking to improve their individual skills and develop higher level team dynamics.  

Select teams train twice weekly and play weekend matches against teams from other clubs around the Georgia area. Additionally, teams may choose to participate in various local or regional tournaments.

Open tryouts are held each year in May/June according to the schedule provided by Georgia Soccer. Positions on Select teams are awarded based on evaluation at tryouts of a players skills and game knowledge. The skills, attitude and potential each player exhibits at these tryouts are considered when team positions are offered. Not every player who attends tryouts will be offered a team position. 

Time Commitment
Most select teams will practice two days a week with higher level teams training a third day.  

By accepting a place on a select team roster, a player commits to play the full seasonal year, June through May. For 13U and 14U players, this comprises the fall and the spring season. For 15U through 19U, there is only one season of play in the fall.

Evaluations for 13U - 19U teams are held in May and June each year for the coming soccer seasonal year.  Information on registering for evaluations and tryouts can be found under the Tryouts link above.  Recreational players can join Rapids FC select programs at any time during the year.  As long as you are not registered with another competitive program you are free to tryout for Rapids FC.   Select players must obtain permission from their current club before any discussions about playing opportunities are held once they accept a position on a competitive team.

Teams participate in 1 or 2 tournaments a season. All teams must participate to one pre-season and one-post season events. Teams can decide to do more than 2 tournaments a season. 

Fees associated with pre- and post-season tournaments are not included in the registration fee. Teams must register according to the procedures published by the hosting clubs and on the dates specified.
