PLEASE RSVP (in addition to using the registration link below) to clevine@palumbosoccer.org if you will be attending these events so we can better plan for social distancing

* if you are interested in all other teams, please contact Paul Atkinson, our Director of Coaching (patkinson@palumbosoccer.org)

Tryout info for the 7/16 date:

  • the 2012 boys team which will hold tryouts to create two travel teams at this age group.  
  • the 2007 and 2008 boys teams will combine to create 2 travel teams that will compete at the '07 level - A tryout will take place for these teams to determine the placement of our current players on the blue and white team
  • the 2006 team which had a large roster size due to the '06 players being used to supplement the '05 team. In this case, a tryout will be held to cut back the '06 team to a more standard roster size. (the 05 team consists of all players in high school who will not start playing club soccer until winter- after their fall school season is over). Tryout TBD

Travel Team tryouts are held in the Spring for the upcoming season (starting in August and ending in June). Once invitations to join a team are sent out, accepting the invitation binds the player’s family to pay the full cost for the Fall season (which is 50% of the total season cost).
There is no refund for the Fall season after a roster spot has been accepted.

Mid-Year – a player’s family is required to give 90 days notice via email before the first day of the Winter season (January 2) or Spring season (April 1) to receive a 50% refund for the
remaining seasons. The cost of the Winter season is 40% of the total season’s cost and the cost of the Spring season is 10% of the total season's cost.
