2020-21 Travel Team Tryouts

Plum Soccer Families

I'm happy to inform you that registration is now OPEN for the 2020-2021 Travel Team Tryouts.  While the Covid-19 pandemic has delayed and altered how we will need to go about things, we are planning for a fall travel season.  That preparation starts now.  We will be doing things a little differently this year, and all decisions are being made with player, spectator and coaches safety in mind.  All players wishing to be placed on a travel team for the 2020-2021 season must register at Please find your child's appropriate age group below for a brief summary on how this year's travel tryout and player evaluation will work.

All families should review our Return to Play Protocol and familiarize themselves on how things will look once we get back on the field.  These protocols were created with player, spectator and coaches safety in mind and must be followed at all times.  All players must submit a waiver prior to taking part in any PAYS training, game, practice or tryout.  All current travel and in-house players must submit a waiver to their coach prior to their first team activity.  Any player that is not currently on a PAYS travel or in-house team can bring a completed waiver and turn it in while checking in on the first night of tryouts.

U9 (2012 Birth Year):
The U9 (2012) age group will have a formal on field tryout at Larry Mills Park.  Players will go through various drills, workouts and scrimmages.  They will be evaluated on their abilities compared to others in the same age group and gender.  Each night the players should check in at the pavilion next to the shed and then go directly to the assigned field. Interested players must make at least one tryout night but multiple (or all) is recommended.

  • Tryout dates are Friday 6/26, Monday 6/29 and Tuesday 6/30
  • Boys will be on Larry Mills field B1. Check in is at 5:45 and the tryout is from 6-7:15
  • Girls will be on Larry Mills field B2.  Check in is at 7:00 and the tryout is from 7:15-8:30

U10-U15 (2011-2006) New Travel Players:
We will give any players in the U10-U15 (2011-2006) age groups that were not previously on a PAYS travel team the best opportunity that we possibly can to display their abilities on the field.  This will most likely consist of adding them into a practice or scrimmage with players of a similar age and gender.  There are currently no set dates or times for this situation.  It will vary depending on the player's age and gender.

U10-U15 (2011-2006) Existing and/or Returning Travel Players:
All existing and/or returning players in the U10-U15 (2011-2006) age groups that were previously on a PAYS travel team will NOT have a formal on field tryout.  Players will be placed onto teams using feedback form their previous or current coach, end of season evaluations and the number of players in the given age group.

Tryout registration is open to all players in the following age groups: (Birth Year / Age Group)
2012 / U9
2011 / U10
2010 / U11
2009 / U12
2008 / U13
2007 / U14
2006 / U15

ALL players must register for tryouts at by Thursday 6/25.

Any questions or concerns about tryouts or travel teams should be directed to Luke Leskovic at [email protected].
