  • All new AND returning players must try out to be considered and you must register in advance. Registration is free!
  • The tentative tryout schedule is above. Dates/Times are subject to change. Be sure to check back periodically up until the day before tryouts for any updates/changes to the schedule.
  • Tryouts for U15 and older age groups will take place at existing team practices. 
  • We recognize community and religious events take place at this time of year which is why we schedule two days of tryouts. While attendance at both tryout days is recommended, especially for new players, it is not required. The highest score from the two days will be used for those players who attend both days. 
  • If there is no girls' team for a particular age group, girls are allowed to try out for the corresponding boys' team.
  • When registering, the player will automatically be put in their age-appropriate group based on birth year. If a new player wishes to try out for an older age group (1 year up only), please email us at info@carmelsoccer.com.
    • If trying out for an age group older than the age-appropriate group and the player is not currently on the team, the player must rank in the top 5 of the older age group (U13+) to be considered unless there is no age-appropriate team. 
    • Note: we do not generally allow this for players U12 or younger.​​​​
