Please Note: There is a new age matrix for player age groups based on birth year, rather than August 1. This is a league mandate and a national movement from US Soccer Federation. You can find the new birth year age matrix on our website and the CDYSL website. Our registration system should automatically place you into the new correct age grouping.
You will have to fill out and bring a medical release form with you to tryouts. The link will be provided in your receipt email for tryout registration.
