1. Arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time for check-in.

2. Bring a ball, shin guards, and water. Cleats are recommended.

3. All players NEW to our travel program must bring a copy of their birth certificate or passport to tryouts.

4. New players will be photographed.

5. Tryouts for U14 and under groups will be approximately 1 hour. Older age groups will be longer.

​​​Travel Tryouts:

  • George Fischer Middle School (GFMS): 281 Fair Street, Carmel, NY 10512
  • Patterson Veterans Memorial Town Park (Patterson Park): 65 Maple Avenue, Patterson, NY 12563
  • Carmel High School (CHS): 30 Fair Street, Carmel, NY 10512
  • Matthew Paterson Elementary School: 100 South Street, Patterson, NY 12563
  • 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 below. 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. 
  • When registering, you may be given two age groups to choose from:
    • The default age group will be the appropriate age group based on the player's birth year. This is the age group most players will select, including ALL NEW travel players to the club.
    • Below your age-appropriate group may be an option for the next age group. If you currently play for a Carmel travel team in an older age group, you would select this second option, unless you want to try out for your age-appropriate team instead.
    • Both options will include the team name for easy identification, with the exception of age groups where a team does not currently exist.
  • If there is no girls' team for a particular age group, girls are allowed to try out for the corresponding boys' team.
  • 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 and up) to be considered unless there is no age-appropriate team. 
    • Note: we do not generally allow this for players U12 or younger.​​​​
