2023 PAC SOCCER TRYOUTS DEC 12,13,15 

PAC Soccer will be located at West Metro Soccer Complex this coming season. Lexington County is charging PAC this year for the use of the fields, therefore we need to raise around $4000 to cover this cost.  All PAC Sports fees have increased $25 which are going towards the Bray Park Expansion Project, not towards our field costs.  Therefore, we are asking all players to try to contact companies or businesses that would give a tax-deductible donation to help us cover this extra expense.  Forms are located on the website under forms and policy.  

-Date: Dec 12, 13, 15 Try to come to all days.  Communicate with the Coach if you cannot make all the days so they can try to affectively evaluate your skill the days you are there.  Team placement is based on tryouts.

-Time: 6:00-8:00

-Location: West Metro Soccer Complex, 760 Old Barnwell Road, West Columbia SC 29170                                                     Across the road from the Pine Grove Baseball Complex

-Who: 6th-12th grade boys and girls; homeschool, private school with no soccer program, charter school, online public school, Midlands Middle College, (cannot be 19 before July 1, 2022, if 19 after July 1st, player can play) if unsure contact pacpanthers@windstream.net

-Shin Guards- all shin guards need to be NOCSAE certified. Check your existing shin guards and make sure the tag can be seen, if you cannot verify that they are certified you will need to get new shin guards. You can purchase these online ex. Soccer.com, or locally at DICKS or Academy Sports.

Policy for Dealing with Issues
-if your player has an issue with another play, please try to deal with the player his/her parent first
-if it cannot be resolved between players, arrange a time to discuss with the coach.
-if the coach cannot handle the situation, he will ask me to step in.
-Please note the 24 hour policy-no one will discuss issues with the coaches following the game. If you feel you need to talk with him, wait 24 hours, then email him to arrange a time to discuss the issue. There will always be a third party present or the meeting will not take place.
-no parent should ever address a referee, opposing team’s coach, players, or fans. Refs can and will make bad calls, parents can and will be obnoxious, however, we have a higher standard and our job is to cheer and encourage our players. The coaches will coach.
