Tryouts will be comprised of 2 sessions grouped by age/gender and are based on the player’s birth year.
Online registration for the tryout sessions is strongly recommended. Please register your player(s) well in advance of the tryout dates. This will assist our evaluators in preparing for each session and speed up the check-in process. There is NO fee to attend tryouts. Please CLICK HERE to register now. Upon completion of the online registration, you will receive a confirmation email with a waiver form attached that must be signed by a parent and presented at check-in.
It is highly recommended that players attend both sessions for their age group. If a player is unable to do so, please notify a staff member and/or evaluator at check-in.
Session 1 will involve a technical carousel so every player has the opportunity to showcase their technical ability which will then be followed by small sided games (4v4).
Session 2 will involve games for understanding (9v9) which will showcase the players' knowledge of the game and how they apply their technical skills in a competition.
- Plan to arrive 30 minutes before your session start-time, allowing time for traffic and parking; the registration booth will be open 30 minutes before each session.
- Bring your signed waiver form. Players will not be permitted on the field without a form signed by a parent.
