High School Tryouts

West Side Soccer League holds open tryouts for its high school travel teams once a year each Spring.  Players may participate whether they are currently active in West Side Soccer League's Core, Tournament, Travel programs or another organization.

The WSSL High School Travel Soccer program will be holding tryouts on the evenings of Wednesday, April 17 (boys) and Thursday, April 18 (girls), for the following age groups: Birth years 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007. The tryout location is Van Cortland Park, Field 1 (grass field).

We welcome all players who are seeking to compete at a higher level to come try out! We may also conduct callbacks or small tryouts, as necessary, during weekdays by invitation. We ask that you make every effort to make the callback, if invited.

We have opened tryout registration under "Events" (clicking the link below requires logging into your WSSL account or navigate to "Events" on the left of the page after logging in). Then find the tryout event coordinating with your player by birth year and gender, e.g. "WSSL High School Age Travel Tryouts - Girls 2010-2007 BY"). There is no fee. Players must be registered to try out by 8:00 pm on April 16, 2024. Walk ons are highly discouraged and will likely not be accepted. Rain date information, if necessary, will be sent to all registrants.

Note: Current ROSTERED WSSL High School travel players do NOT need to sign up for the tryouts. Your place and / or possible promotion will be determined by trainer evaluation during practice and matches over the fall and spring seasons. All NEW players to WSSL high school travel or tournament must try out, including players wanting to move from the tournament program to travel and all players wanting to move from U14 travel to high school travel.
