About Our Tryouts
Our Annual OPEN Tryouts for the 2015-16 Soccer Year will be held in early Spring.
Last year's Tryout Schedule by Age Group
Our "OPEN" tryouts are held in April and early May for the following Soccer year, which begins in August. The year-long soccer season for Travel begins in August and ends in June, with a short Winter break after the Fall season as well as after the Spring season in July.
Players are required to register for our tryouts online, or parents can email us to register your child the day of tryouts. Players attempting to register at the fields must show up at least 30 minutes prior to the tryout, and are not guaranteed a spot at tryouts. The online process is highly encouraged, and will streamline your experience.
The tryouts are typically 2 evening sessions in the same week, consisting of individual exercises, small sided games and scrimmages.
Players will receive a numbered Tryout Shirt with your registration fee of $10. **
