When are Juniors Interest Meetings?

  •  Wednesday May 15th 730-830PM at the McLean Community Center (MCC) – Community Hall A
  • Meeting Presentation is posted at the top of this page.

Can we attend only one tryout?

  • Players should attend as many tryouts as possible to give themselves the best opportunity to be noticed and selected for the pool.  

What are the skills, traits, and characteristics you look for at tryouts?

  • We look for players who are creative and confident with the ball at their feet and willing to try various dribbling moves to beat a defender.  We also look very closely for the focused and disciplined player who is able to take instruction.
  • Note: Players who detract from the tryout experience of other trialists will be removed from the tryout and will not be invited back to any subsequent tryouts.

How many players are selected?

  • The Juniors program does not have a quota of players.

What do we need to wear or bring to the Juniors tryout?

  • A white t-shirt (this will be written on with a permanent marker, shirt must be tucked in).
  • Inflated soccer ball.  Balls that are not inflated will be punted.
  • Soccer socks and Shin guards - Socks must cover the shinguards.
  • Water.
  • Players must carry their own equipment (water, ball, etc.) to the field themselves.

I have some additional questions about Juniors, who should I contact?
