BOYDS, Md. – The Washington Spirit announced today an additional spring tryout date for the 2013 W-League and W-20 teams. Tryouts are scheduled for Saturday, April 20 from 4-6 p.m. at the Maryland Soccerplex (Field #14) in Boyds, Maryland. Players must register in order to participate in trials.
With the addition of a professional team for 2013, the W-League squad will become a primary proving ground for players to prove themselves capable of deserving a shot at the pros. The W-League team will carry the name “Washington Spirit Reserves” and will train frequently alongside the professional team. The W-20 team will serve the region’s top college-bound and active college players who still have several years left before graduation from the college game.
Current collegiate players with remaining NCAA eligibility may not attend April tryout due to competitive restrictions. A final tryout opportunity for those athletes will be announced in the near future and will occur on or shortly after the May 1 NCAA restriction date.
Interested players must complete the online tryout registration form along with one-time $50 registration fee in order to be eligible to participate. Previously registered players are not to pay registration fee a second time.
Players are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes prior for check-in, warm-up, and stretching. Maryland Soccerplex Field #14 is a grass field, so players should insure they bring proper footwear to the trials.
