All players should wear proper soccer attire including shinguards.  Players are asked to bring an age-appropriate soccer ball (U12 and below size 4; U13 and above size 5)  and plenty of water.  Parents/players are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to the beginning of a tryout session to check the player in at the registration table, receive a tryout number and get directions to the correct field.
