Tacoma Stars 2008-09 Tryout Information
The Tacoma Stars today announced they will hold a tournament formatted open tryout at The Soccer Center in Tacoma on Labor Day weekend. The cost to tryout is $35 and every participant is guaranteed to get three matches with different teammates to prove themselves in front of the Tacoma Stars staff.
Players ages 16 and over interested in playing the highest level of indoor soccer in the area are encouraged to try out. The Stars will be filling spots on both their first team competing in the Premier Arena Soccer League’s Northwest Division and their developmental reserve squad based out of The Soccer Center. Reserve players will be available for call up to the first team as warranted and needed through the course of the PASL season.
“This year we’re holding our tryout in a format that will allow players to get more than a brief glance over a two hour period,” said Tacoma Stars general manager Mati Bishop. “We want every player that tries out to get a good look and have a good experience in the process.”
Training for the Tacoma Stars will start in September and the PASL season runs from December through March.
How It Works
Each player in the tryout will be scheduled to play three matches through the course of the day. These matches will be with and against different groups of players selected based on the luck of the draw.
Players will be evaluated on their overall indoor soccer skill, leadership and organizational abilities, competitive attitude, versatility and attitude.
After every player has played three matches, some players may be chosen to play additional matches for further evaluation.
No results will be announced at the tryout. Players will be notified by telephone or email following the tryout about their status with the team.
