EYSC Travel Teams

Current 2020-2021 EYSC Travel Tryout Information

On Tuesday, July 28, 2020, from 6:00-7:30 p.m., at a location that is still to be determined and will be announced once a location can be confirmed, EYSC will be holding a tryout for a U14 (2007 and 2008 birth years) girls travel team.  We are also inviting girls with 2006 birth year to try out for a possible U15 (2006) girls travel team.  If we find that we have a good group of 2006 girls that we can build an older travel team around, but not enough to fully field a team, then we will look at additional options for possibly adding U16 (2005) girls from EYSC or maybe even 2005/2006 girls from another club like Lititz or Cocalico.  If we are able to form a team, we plan to do so.

The rain date for the tryouts will be Thursday, July 30, 2020, from 6:00-7:30, at the same TBD location.  The tryout dates have been determined so that they do not conflict with any open turf practices for the Middle School or High School Teams.

There is no charge for the tryout.  Each player trying out will receive an EYSC T-shirt on the evening of the tryout that is theirs to keep after the tryout.

In-person check in for the tryouts will start at 5:30 p.m. on the evening of the tryouts, and warm-ups can begin immediately after checking in.

If your player would like to attend the tryout but is unable to attend on the evening of the tryout, due to injury or vacation, etc., please let us know. We will try to make arrangements to have your player evaluated by the coaching staff and/or travel committee on a separate date.

The players for the U14 (2007/2008) team will be selected and announced within 48 hours of conclusion of the tryout, and the travel registration will be opened right away.  Players will need to be registered for the team ASAP in order to submit the necessary paperwork to the league/state (EPYSA) in time for the fall season. The coaches do not plan to practice or play in any tournaments during the fall season, since almost all of the girls will be playing Middle School soccer this fall, but the coaches do plan to play in the Central Pennsylvania Youth Soccer League (CPYSL) for the fall season, which is currently scheduled to begin the weekend of August 29-30. It is anticipated that league games will typically be scheduled for Sunday afternoons (no earlier than 1:00 p.m.).

We have a coach lined up for the potential U15/U16 team, if there is enough interest in forming that older team.

The Ephrata Youth Soccer Club is committed to having our players play at the highest level of soccer the players are capable.  EYSC Travel Teams are one way the Club promotes this. The following provides an overview of the Travel Tryouts.  It is the goal of the Travel Team tryouts to pick the best players for EYSC’s Travel Teams. EYSC is interested in serious soccer players who are dedicated to the sport and committed to excellence. Travel Team tryouts are held once a year in the spring.  The “annual” soccer season runs from August through the following July and is compromised by one fall season and one spring season.
