Where: South High School Stadium (3131 19th Avenue South Minneapolis, MN 55407)
When: August 14th-16th from 10am – 12pm (We will be starting promptly at 10am. You should be there at least 15 minutes beforehand to get your equipment on, get water, use the bathroom, etc.)
What to Bring: Water, Cleats, Socks, Shin Guards (You must wear shin guards during try-outs and practices), Tennis Shoes, and Gloves (for goalkeepers).

Players MUST be registered, have a current physical available, and have all paperwork filled out in order to be able to step onto the field on August 14th. There will be absolutely no exceptions. We are a no-cut program and highly encourage all players interested to come try out! There is no requirement of skill level or playing experience to play on a team! Get your friends to come try out with you! Players should bring cleats, shin guards, running shoes, and a water bottle to each day of tryouts.

Tips to help you be the most successful you can be at tryouts:

  • Start getting in shape NOW! Players should be able to complete a three-mile run at least twice a week comfortably.
  • Be technically sound on the ball by the time the season starts. Attending summer training sessions will help with this. Players should spend 5-10 minutes juggling every day as well.
  • If able, WATCH SOCCER! Go watch your friend’s games. Watch any professional games you can. Watch highlight reels on youtube. Learn from anyone you can!

    • Always working their hardest at practices and games
    • Hungry for improvement
    • Willingness to dig deep and believe that the boundaries of what can be achieved can always be pushed further
  • Varsity players are respectful to their teammates, coach, and school equipment
    • Positive attitude, respectful communication, able to receive constructive criticism, able to listen correctly
