The Academy Squads are selective, based upon tryouts to be held in May each year. These are Academy Squad specific tryouts, and are separate from SYSA BAYS evaluations. Decisions regarding placement are independent of SYSA BAYS evaluations, current or past BAYS team placements, and BAYS coach assessments. 

The Squads will hold additional goalkeeper specific tryouts for those players who wish to concentrate on the position.  Players with a goalkeeper concentration will commit to playing the position a minimum of 50% of the time.  Players with a goalkeeper concentration must attend both the goalkeeper tryouts and field player tryouts.
