Dedicated Tryout Sessions
for players of all ages
at: Anderson Elementary School

 Friday May 17th , 6pm to 7:30pm

- OR -

 Sunday May 19th , 9am to 10:30am

Tryouts will be on the Main field at the back of the school – off Teale Avenue.

We encourage players born in 2013-2014 to attend the May 17th session if possible.

We will connect players born in 2012 and earlier with our coaches on relevant teams, to attend practice sessions, meet potential teammates and get a feel for the program.


Players seeking to play competitive soccer with West Valley Soccer Club for the first time may tryout by attending a training session with the relevant team(s). 

Please email Karl Lawson-Henze at for more information on opportunities to try out with our teams or to schedule a time.

West Valley Soccer Club is open to both individual players and full recreational teams seeking a community soccer club to develop their players.


What should my child bring and wear to tryouts?

Players should wear sports attire, soccer cleats, socks and shin guards. They should also bring plenty of water to keep themselves hydrated during tryouts.

What should I expect on tryout day?

Players will be assigned to a team of appropriate age and gender and participate in one or more normal training sessions, which may include a combination of technical, tactical and game-like sessions.  We believe this is the optimal way both for our coaches to evaluate potential fit with the team and for players and their parents to get a feel for how sessions are conducted and the culture of the team.

What should I tell my player about tryouts?

We are a community-based club, with most of our coaching staff living and working in the area. We want the kids to have an enjoyable experience so tell them to practice with their ball ahead of time, but to relax and have fun at the tryout.

When will I hear back about the tryout?

You will hear back within a week if your child has made a competitive team.


If you have any additional questions regarding tryouts, please contact Karl Lawson-Henze.
