As we approach our first tryout this week, please note that our top priority and the most important consideration has and always will be the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, and families.

Please stay home if you are sick - we all love the game, but one sick child or family member could end the season for the entire Club. Please do your part!

Due to restrictions related to how many people can gather at/on the field at one time, we kindly request that parents stay in their cars and drop off their players for tryouts.

Please review and plan to follow the detailed instructions outlined below:

Arrival & Departure:

  • Please arrive 10 minutes before tryout to allow for check in and preparation  
  • Each player needs to arrive wearing a face covering and prepared to play (cleats on, shin guards in, hair up, no jewelry/earrings, etc.
  • Once players exit their cars they should head directly to the check-in tent, where they will be assigned, by the Coaches, to a training station.
  • Players should maintain 6-feet distance when walking to and from the field.
  • At the completion of each tryout, players should quickly gather up their ball & water bottle and return to the parking lot for pickup. No remaining on the field and social gathering.
  • There is no congregating allowed on or near any part of the field before, during, or after each tryout session. For this reason, we appreciate the timely pickup of players at the end of each session.
  • Parents must stay in their cars at all times (before, during and after each session)

Players will also be allowed to wear masks while training, but this will be a personal choice of the player’s parent or guardian. Any other individuals attending the training session are required to wear appropriate face coverings and follow all social distancing guidelines.
