Competitive Player Pool - PLEASE REGISTER

Due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we are forced to find alternate and creative ways to form our competitive teams; traditional in-person, large scale tryouts are logistically not feasible. First and foremost, we need to ascertain an accurate representation of the number of players interested in playing for the Fall Super Liga Season. Thus, we are asking parents to register their children into an "OSNK United Competitive Player Pool." CLICK HERE

This process is time-sensitive in nature, so we are requesting any and all players intending on playing competitive soccer at OSNK United for 2020-2021 to register at your very first convenience at the link below. This does not formally commit your child to a team placement or require payment, but it will accomplish the following:

  1. Allow us to quantitatively measure the interest, intention, and availability of both formerly rostered OSS/NKSA competitive players AND NEW players interested in playing competitive soccer at OSNK United in each age group.

  2. Enable all members to be covered by insurance through SRI.

Once we have an understanding of the number of participants in each age group, we can begin working to formulate teams in said groups. Factors will include (to name just a few): player statistics in each age group, player evaluations, confirmed coaching commitments, and coach's feedback. Because of these unique and unprecedented times, we remain mindful and supportive of legacy teams from both organizations and will be taking the configuration and dynamics of these teams into account during team formation. With that said, fundamental factors such as enrollment/registration numbers and the skill and experience make up of those players may ultimately determine player placement and final team formation. Rest assured that in situations requiring additional guidance and support when determining the most suitable playing and developmental environment for a player, we will seek input and insight from that player's former coach.

We will provide more information on registration fees and payment schedules for the 2020/2021 Super Liga Season in the coming weeks.

We are excited about the prospect of getting our players back on the field once conditions allow and encourage you to register your child as soon as possible by using the link here:
