VYS Travel Tryouts

VYS 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 Technical Staff for your appropriate age group. Players should arrive for check-in 30 mins prior to the first tryout they attend to confirm attendance and pick up a number.

Tryout Schedule

For rising U8 (birth year 2011) players, tryouts will run from May 6th thru May 20th, 2018. These young players will be considered as "playing up" and will be grouped with the rising U9 (birth year 2010) players.

All rising U9 (birth year 2010) players, tryouts will run from May 6th thru May 20th, 2018. 

For all current travel players, tryouts will run from May 7th thru May 17th, 2018. We have arranged for tryouts to occur during usual age-group practice times to alleviate any stress on the players and parents.

For VYS House (Recreation) players U10-U16 interested in trying out for VYS Travel for the 2018-19 season, we are hosting House Player Pre-Tryouts on May 4th. This Pre-Tryout session will give House players an opportunity to be evaluated by our Travel Coaches in a low-pressure environment before attending Travel Tryouts which will begin May 7th.

For VYS House players U17 and older, tryouts will begin May 7th and run thru May 20th. No pre-tryout needed.

It is highly recommended that players attend as many tryout sessions as possible for purposes of visibility to the evaluation staff and commitment to the try-out process.

Players can choose to attend other age group tryouts as well as their own age group. We ask that you send an email to the appropriate DOC if your player decides to attend other age group tryouts. Also, players who attend other age group tryouts will be evaluated against others in that specific age group.
