    I heard that every year there is an trial in japan scouted by the j-league clubs.
    So I was wondering how does it work in j-league? Thoes each club create their own trial? or there is an special day where all the teams watch the players contact the best ones, like the Draft system in Mls.

    No need to bite his head off. It was a legitimate question. And who really bothers looking at those "sticky" threads anyway when they visit a forum? Especially one that have been dead for more than a year.

    honestly, guys, I'm curious to know too for example, and it's not because I want to try LOL
    and I don't know if things changed since that thread (I mean just in regard to how things are managed)

    Sorry I had trouble deciphering your English. Most clubs in the J-League have youth systems which develop a lot of their own players. Aside from those there are are top Footballing Universities in Japan much like the NCAA which feed the rest of the players. As you speak of the "Mls" or Major League Soccer you would draw a conclusion that open trials have about as much chance of players landing a spot with the team as the second coming of Christ. Hope that answers your "question".

    Thanks for the answer to my "question", but have the University teams any connection with the professional teams? Like some sort of youth team like kashiwa reysol sub 18 for example.

    Teams have youth programs at various age groups unlike the MLS which only usually has 1 or 2 age groups tops. Remember JLeague Teams are actually clubs, so development is a higher priority than leagues like the MLS which only see short term success as a main focus. The High schools and Universities in Japan I don't believe are connected to the teams but I could be wrong there. Certainly clubs are attracted to some schools in particular that turn out top athletes like they do in professional Baseball in Japan.

    There is a mass-trial held for uncontracted players and some hopefuls (not sure how they get in, sorry) during the off-season. I remember reading an article about it last (northern hemisphere) winter. About 200 players, only a handful get picked up.

    Entrants must be in the players' union.

    Lock this thread NOW!.

    The whole issue has been discussed in detail many MANY times before, and that is why the other thread was created. Go read it. That is the final word on this topic.

    As Vendo said, even to get in the "open" trials you have to be qualified by the players union. More importantly, in the 20 years of J.League history I know of exactly five players who were selected by teams through the open trials who ended up getting at least one J.League (J2) cap. All five were Japanese citizens, and none of them lasted longer than two seasons in the J2. The chances of a foreign player getting selected via the open trials is nowhere near as likely as the second coming of Christ, because at least in the case of Christ, it HAS happened once before.

    It is very very VERY rare for J.League teams to go outside their scouting organisations when selecting foreign players (ie the club didnt come looking for you, but you went looking for the club). If you are an experienced pro player in your own country, with a good, well-known agent and with at least some national team experience (at least at the youth level), then you MIGHT have a 1 in 1000 chance of getting a J.League club to consider you

    But of course, if that were the case then you wouldnt need to go looking for information about it on an internet forum.

    Now lock this thread and quit wasting our time!!!:mad:

    You're the one that wasted your own time by answering.
    The others who chose to answer CHOSE to and whether they considered it a waste is their own opinion.

    Calm down.

    I always quite liked the Japanese tryout threads, which I don't even think that this is one of.

    Found it quite interesting to see what sort of person thought they might be able to make it as a pro-footballer in Japan, with the more misguided and far-fetched the better.
    It was always very easy to see threads on that topic if I had wanted to avoid them.

    They weren't that common, and despite no hopes or aspirations of being anything other than a casual fan found out some quite interesting things about different clubs/players from time to time.

    The "problem" is that those people who actually know enough facts to respond eventually see so many misconceptions and inaccuracies posted that they finally get fed up, and have to post something to correct all the misinformation (eg. Vendo correcting the inaccurate comment that anyone can try out).

    The thread lasted two days with nobody responding, and that would have been just fine. Nobody would have complained.

    The reason why the locked thread exists in the first place is that this same cycle of misinformation, clarification, annoyance and then settling the matter has happened at least 40 or 50 times in the years since I joined BigSoccer . . . and those people who have been here for any length of time are tired of it. Why cant people just take the huge hint provided by a STICKY, LOCKED, 24-PAGE-LONG thread, and accept that the locked thread is the final word on the matter. Every comment made above this post has been made at least once before on the locked thread. Please show some environmental sensitivity and preserve precious megabits by not restating what has already been stated countless times in the past.

    (PS - the first post on the locked thread states specifically: "if you open a new thread on this topic, it will be locked and you will receive an infraction." Does anyone care to discuss the theme of consistency by moderators?)
