Tryouts and Expansion!
We are expanding our program for the first time in two years. Having secured additional first class field space, and recruited technically excellent coaches, that know how to play, and how to teach our technical brand of soccer, we have decided to add three teams to the program in 2016/17. Now is a great time to come join us. With at cost training and amazing coach-to-player ratios, we are a great alternative to the vanilla, big club, experience.
Our tryouts were amazingly successful this year. We took in excess of 50 new players into our program and expanded by four teams. We are sorry for all those players that did not get selected, but please keep in touch and remember that we have open tryouts all year round and slots do open up from time to time.
