JUNIOR & SENIOR TRYOUTS (2003-2011)

Our Junior & Senior programs are our most competitive formats.  

Our Junior teams compete in a Fall, Winter, & Spring range playing in a 9v9 (11U & 12U) or 11v11 (13U & 14U) format.  These players will be focusing on improving their decisions with the ball, improving their ability to move the ball, and understanding the tactical nuances of the game. 

At the Senior tier, our players are focusing on performance and competition.  These players (15U-19U) will train in a Winter & Spring model that closely imitates an environment that players will see during collegiate soccer.

Tryouts will be held June 14-17.
