The 2018-19 season was our biggest in club history yet, and we are delighted to announce our tryout dates for the 2019-20 season. Next year we want to continue our growth as a club, and this May we will have three tryout dates for each age group (We encourage you attend all three sessions).

During the 18-19 season we achieved some incredible landmarks for our club; we were extremely proud to have had eight teams play throughout the fall/spring. Within the eight teams we were able to add our first ever Spring Girls team (U14 Girls), as well as our youngest team in Shield history (U12 Boys).  

For our 2019 tryouts we are anticipating the largest ever turnout for the club, we have grown our amazing coaching staff and now cannot wait to see our family club add even more aspiring footballers.
