Tryout Initiative Gaining Momentum as Club Leaders Come Together!

Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer would like to recognize and thank the over 50 soccer clubs who have agreed to the May 1 Try-Out Initiative. This initiative provides the opportunity for all our travel soccer players to participate and develop for an entire season, August through May, and not worry about early try-out dates or being released from their clubs.

We as coaches, parents, and administrators should continue the effort to provide what is best for every child playing soccer. Early try-outs, ID clinics or so-called kick arounds for the purpose of identifying players creates undue pressure on a child and in many instances the parents as well.

This initiative has also brought clubs together. Clubs who approved of the initiative have united and see themselves as supporters of a child’s best interests rather than adversaries who compete against each other.

Each day new clubs will be featured on our web site and social media; who stepped up an made the decision to do what is right for every child.
