Sky Blue to hold them on Jan. 24-25, March 11-12
Sky Blue FC on Tuesday announced the dates for two sets of open tryouts, with the first one on Jan. 24-25 and a second planned for March 11-12.
Cost for each two-day trial will be $100, and online registration is open.
"We are always looking for good all-around soccer players who can make a positive impression on our club," Sky Blue coach Jim Gabarra said. "We will also be having a reserve team this season, which presents even more chances for players. In the past, there were shrinking opportunities due to having a lower number of teams, but there will be a lot more chances in the National Women's Soccer League since we will launch with eight teams. Players will have more opportunities to earn a roster spot, and that provides the platform to get them into the national team picture as well."
Open tryouts will be held at the Metuchen SportsPlex, with a possible outdoor location being secured for the sessions as well. The one-time $100 registration fee will guarantee both days of the trials. Candidates must register online prior to the Tuesday before the first day of tryouts, and all players must be at least 18-years-old. In addition to signing a liability waiver, proof of medical insurance will need to be shown at pre-tryout registration, which will get underway at 9:30 a.m. on the opening days of trials. All participants should bring indoor and outdoor gear. A t-shirt will be provided for each player.
There will be two training sessions per day, with a two-hour morning workout that will begin at 10 a.m. and a second one from 3-5 p.m. These times are subject to change, but participants will be notified.
