William and Mary Men's Club Soccer
The A-Team is a travel intensive, commitment oriented club for the more-than-casual player. When you attend "try-outs" you are essentially trying out for the A-Team. The team will consist of around 25 or so members, though that number is subject to change based on what we see during tryout. Although we have lost some seniors, please note that EVERYONE (besides the captains and myself) will be trying out. I say this to new guys wondering how many/which spots are available, as well as to "returning" players who think they will cruise through tryouts. Every year is an opportunity to maximize the strength of our squad and further our success. A-Team members, once chosen, are expected to attend every practice, express willingness to train independently or with team members after normal practice hours (schedule permitting), and most importantly, attend games.
The B-Team is a more casual level of commitment, and we pride ourselves on drawing enough skill to make the claim that the B-Team is by no means notches below the level of the A-Team in talent. While tryouts are for making the A-Team, being on the B-team does not exclude you from competing against other schools, or quite frankly from moving up to the A-Team at some point to help us out. That being said, the B-Team tends to be a larger team, less commitment oriented, and more for serving the interests of equal playing time.
