  • Freshman coaches may move players to the sophomore level for a tryout, but sophomore tryouts are not open tryouts.
  • Most players have a number of years of playing experience, through local recreational and competitive club programs.
  • Due to a high number of players with lots of experience, tryouts at every level are very competitive.
  • In general, prior experience and previous level of play do make a difference in player development.  While it does NOT matter which club a player chooses to play for (if at all), players are encouraged to play throughout the year and at the highest level at which they can play. 
  • Players are NOT allowed to wear club apparel during tryouts or at practices throughout the season - players should wear York soccer apparel as they represent their high school on and off the field.
