Late Tryouts

Travel Late Tryouts

Held in 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 the Elite Program, please contact Dan Ensley
Charlottesville Travel program, Jimmy Tharpe
The Augusta Travel program, Nora Maguire White

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. Coaches are under no obligation to fill roster spots or add players to a roster at the Late Tryouts.

Challenge Late Tryouts

Also occur 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.


The 2016-17 Late Challenge Tryout for Charlottesville will be held on Saturday, August 13th at 11:00am at South Fork Park.
