Summer Academy Tryouts Set for March 12th - 16th

Our Youth Academy serves as a world class soccer development tool for players that are looking to progress to the college and professional levels of soccer. The academy also serves as our "farm system" for our professional men's team that plays in the National League of Professional Futsal and our soon to come semi-pro women's team.  - Jeremy Klepal

Common Questions: 

My player has additional soccer training/games during the summer. Will the schedules conflict? While we cannot guarantee that there will not be schedule conflicts, we do however do our best to work training schedules around conflicts. Because we have access everyday of the week to training facilities we have quite a bit of freedom to adjust schedules. 

My player cannot make any of the tryout days. Is there another tryout option? We strongly encourage players to attend tryouts during the tryout week. However if a conflict is unavoidable, than we are happy to make accommodations for that player. Please fill out he registration form and select the "I can't make tryouts form"
