Tryout FAQs

What are the fees?

Tryout and ID Clinic registration fee will be $10.

Is there anything that I need to bring to tryouts?

Players must bring a pumped-up soccer ball with their name on it, shin guards, cleats, and water.

What happens after the tryout?

After the tryout period has been conducted the club will present the player and their families a tryout acceptance/denial letter via email. If the player is accepted they will be given the name of the coach and the team that they believe best suits the player's skill level and needs. They will also provide the parents with the player guide giving some basic information about the club, fee structure, parent and player requirements, scholarship opportunities, club benefits, and the next steps.

Before a player can participate in any practices or games they must accept the offer, register for the team and complete any league paperwork as laid out in the offer letter.

* All players must register and attend at least one tryout to be considered for a team *
