2002 December Trials Player Invitations- Posted 12/10/14 at 12:00 p.m.
- Click HERE for Girls
- Click HERE for Boys
- Players invited back should register for both days of the January Trials 1/10 & 1/11.
- Players not invited back should not be discouraged. All players in this age are still very young and have time to develop and grow as a soccer player. This can be seen as either a challenge or a threat and we hope you see it as a challenge to continue to improve. Many of the cuts were made to players born in 2003, who will have an opportunity next year and the experience of already participating in the trials process. We encourage all players who were not invited back to continue to train and join the Elite Player Development Program for the spring. Dates have not yet been finalized.
