It's that time of year again... 2017-2018 Travel Soccer Tryouts will take place on the following weekends:

  • Primary Tryout Weekend - Friday, March 31 and Saturday, April 1
  • Makeup Tryout Weekend - Friday, April 7 and Saturday, April 8

It is highly encouraged that as many players as possible make their age specific Primary Tryout Weekend session, as these will be pure travel team tryout formats.  Players will all be competing and playing together in the same environment.  The Makeup Tryout Weekend will consist of players being incorporated into an age-appropriate existing team's regular training environment.

If anyone needs makeup tryout weekend information, please ask, and we'll get you that info.
