You can download
the registration form in advance and bring along to the tryout.
Players MUST tryout on age appropriate teams if they aren't already on a currently established team. If it is deemed by the evaluating coaches that a player should be playing in a more competitive environment, they may be recommended to tryout with an older age group. This, however, will be with the agreement with the player and parents.
The goal of the Club is to field teams in all age groups for both boys and girls. This will only be possible if all interested players throughout St. Mary's County attend the tryouts. We strongly encourage all players throughout St. Mary's County that are interested in competitive soccer to attend both tryouts identified.
Players will be notified via U.S. Mail as to the decision of the coaching staff.
Updates as of June 5, 2004
Several high school aged teams have elected to sit out the fall season and therefore, will not hold tryouts until Nov. 2004 (Please see More information on travel soccer for Fall 2004 for those teams that will hold June tryouts). The following is a summary of those age groups that will not tryout in June:
U17 and above boys
U16, U17 and U19 girls
If you require further clarification please dont hesitate contacting us.
Also, many have asked if they must attend both tryouts. It is highly encouraged that each player attends both tryouts to ensure a fair evaluation of their ability. Additionally, all players that are currently in the area must tryout to be eligible for selection. If you do not tryout you cannot be evaluated and therefore, will not be selected. Players moving into the area after the June tryout dates will be put in touch with the appropriate age group coach so that a tryout can be arranged.
