Late Tryouts

Travel Late Tryouts

Held in late July to early August, after initial team selections and placements. These tryouts are intended for new players that have recently moved into the Charlottesville area, players who could not participate in the Annual Tryouts due to injury or schedule conflicts, or players recommended by SOCA’s Director of Coaching.

Approval from the SOCA Travel Coaching Staff is required in order to participate in the late travel tryout.
For those interested in trying out for Skyline Elite or SOCA Travel programs or , please contact  Jimmy Tharpe

Please note:
There are very limited spots available at the Late Travel Tryout and it is in the player’s best interest to attend the primary Annual Tryout, if possible. Coaches are under no obligation to fill roster spots or add players to a roster at the Late Tryouts.

2020/2021 Travel Program Late Tryouts for Skyline Elite and SOCA are scheduled via individual team training sessions.  Contact Jimmy Tharpe to make arrangements.  



Challenge Late Tryouts

Also occur annually in early August. At the Annual Tryout, each Challenge team will typically be formed with a single roster vacancy. The late tryout will seek to fill all such vacancies. Any interested, age-appropriate player may participate in the late Challenge tryout. All eager candidates are welcome to attend. Arrive 20-30 minutes early to complete a manual registration for the tryout on site.  There is no pre-registration option for this tryout.  Selections and team placements will be announced via e-mail as close to the conclusion of the tryout as possible.

All candidates born from 2006- 2012 are welcome.

2020/2021 Late Challenge Tryout Update:  These Tryouts have been rescheduled due to weather for Friday, August 21st, 5:00pm @ South Fork Soccer Park.  


*There is No Online Pre-Registration for the Late Tryouts.  Candidates will be asked to complete a short form at the fields on the day of the tryout.  Please arrive 15-20 minutes early for your tryout.
