Players are expected to attend both days.

Players must register for Tryouts
Register NOW on Team Snap.

Make sure to complete the Medical Release Waiver form when registering and bring with you to tryouts.

For tryouts players should not wear their team uniforms, or any t-shirt that relates to a specific group, organization, or local team. Players should wear a plain white t-shirt and dress appropriate for soccer and the weather. If a player wears a team jersey or t-shirt they will be asked to change. This is so our tryouts are a fair opportunity for all kids trying out. If possible, they should also bring a soccer ball.
