There is no way around the fact that tryouts can be stressful. We will do our best to take care of your player and to make the tryout process as fun and fair as possible. At Blue Knights Soccer Club we have dozens of teams that compete at all playing levels, therefore giving as many players as possible the opportunity to find a team that best suits their needs. We encourage you to come out and experience the process.
Whether you're coming from recreational soccer or starting directly at the club level, here is some basic information on the steps we go through to assemble our teams. Tryouts will be held over a two day time period for all age groups. Upon arrival, players will check-in and be directed to the appropriate coach. Over the next 90 minutes everyone will participate in a series of drills and games while coaches observe and take detailed notes. Players are not just evaluated on their soccer skills, they are also scored on their athleticism, general attitude, listening skills and effort. Because Blue Knights is a developmental club, we look for player potential as much as existing skills.
Within 48 hours of the last day of tryouts, offers will be made to select players. The registration process will be completed online for those who accept their placement on a team.
