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.

2022/2023 Travel Program Late Tryouts:  Monday, August 1, 2022. 

U11-U14 : 5pm-6:15pm @ South Fork Soccer Park

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 15-20 minutes early to check in at the registration tent for your tryouts.  If possible please pre-register for the Challenge Late tryout online through your SOCA account.  Selections and team placements will be announced via e-mail as close to the conclusion of the tryout as possible (most likely the following week).

All candidates born from 2008- 2014 are welcome.
