Players are STRONGLY encouraged to attend both sessions but attendance at both is not mandatory.

The coaches of each All Star age group/team are licensed and experienced coaches, many of who are involved in Loudoun Soccer's Travel program.

Coaches in our Rec and Challenge programs interested in assisting with tryouts and/or All Star teams should see below.

TRYOUT FORMAT:

Players MUST arrive 15-30 minutes before their scheduled tryout date to check-in, and should wear/bring the following:

  • weather-appropriate clothing
  • shin-guards
  • soccer shoes
  • water
  • properly sized and inflated soccer ball

Players will participate in a series of activities and tests for coaches to evaluate and best select players.  All families will receive notification of selection or rejection by email on or around October 10.


The goal is to form one or two teams per age group and gender.  Multiple teams may be formed in each age group based on interest, ability and coach availability.


PRACTICE AND EVENT SCHEDULE:

Players selected to an All Star team will train on Sunday afternoons or evenings (Oct 19, Oct 26, Nov 2, Nov 9) to avoid conflicts with their regular team's practices and games, and additional sessions will be scheduled during the week of November 10 (five total practices).

All teams will attend the Herndon All-Star Cup November 15-16.

REGISTRATION, FEES AND UNIFORMS:

All players who wish to tryout MUST register online via their Family Accounts - click HERE to access your Family Account.  Registration will open the week of September 22; notification to all u9-u12 players will be sent via email once registration is open.  Please register AT LEAST 24 hours before your tryout date.  Registration deadline is Saturday October 4.

There is no cost to tryout.  The fee to participate if selected is $100, which includes the following:

1. tournament team registration to Herndon All-Star Cup;
2. Approximate 10 hours of soccer (training and games) under the direction of a licensed and experienced coach.

Payment will be collected by credit card or e-check via your Family Account if selected.

A uniform package of $40 may be required; returning players from Fall 2013 and/or Spring 2014 All Stars may re-use their uniform from that season.  New players will need to purchase this package if selected.  The Loudoun Soccer All Star uniform package includes two official ProTime "Anaheim" All Star jerseys (red and white) and one ProTime "Arena" bag (players are to provide their own black shorts and black socks).

An optional All Star hooded sweatshirt will also be available to order.

Selected players will need to place their uniform order at Bolen Park near field 12 on Sunday October 19.  More information will be sent following selections.
