Travel Tryouts

Travel Tryouts

VYS Travel provides opportunities for players to participate in high quality, competitive soccer to help them reach personal goals and to develop as players to reach their full soccer potential. All our professional coaches work collectively via the VYS Coaching Philosophy and Style to provide players with the proper tools and instruction to enable them to foster technically, tactically, physically, and psychologically.

Two tryouts per age group will be held. Players should attend both tryout dates. If you are unable to attend both tryouts, please contact the Director of Coaching for your appropriate age group: Kevin James U9-U12: kjames@vys.org or Michel Vanderhart U13-U19: mvanderhart@vys.org

Please arrive 20-30 minutes before the start of the tryout.

Inclement Weather Guidelines

In case of rain or lightning, please check our website at www.vys.org to see if the tryout fields are open. Decisions will be made as early as possible and be notified through appropriate channels. After 3 pm, it will be the Tryout Director in consultation with VYS staff that make the decision whether to hold the tryout. Lightning: When lightning occurs, and is seen before or during a tryout, everyone must leave the field and go to their vehicles immediately. The tryout may resume after 30 minutes since the last lightning strike. It is the tryout Director in consultation with VYS staff to decide whether to continue or cancel the tryout after the 30 minutes.
