Frequently asked questions

How is a player selected for a KAFC team?


All current KAFC players must tryout each year along with the players new to the club. Players are evaluated by KAFC coaches.




When are tryouts held?


KAFC’s tryouts are a two-day event typically being held in February for High school aged boys and April-May for all other age groups. Due to COVID-19, tryouts for 2020 will be determined and announced by WYS.




Can my child tryout out and play up in age?


Any child that wants to play up in age must obtain permission from the Director of Coaching.




Can my child be a “training only” player?
