Reminder

For both tryouts and training sessions kids should not wear their team uniforms, or any t-shirt that relates to a specific group, organization, or local team.  Kids should wear a plain t-shirt and dress appropriate for 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 to training and tryouts.
