Mission

The mission of the ELCO United tryout and selection process is to ensure that all players receive a fair opportunity to join a team of their peers that possess a similar skill level and a desire to play soccer competitively.

Team Selection

Participant results will be tallied by the Myerstown Soccer Club Board. Player selection will be determined through a combination of tryout results and coach recommendations. Having previously played for a team does not guarantee a spot for the next season.  Accepted players will be notified as soon as possible after the end of tryouts. Selected Players must have or purchase the mandatory ELCO United uniforms items for that season.

What will the tryout evaluators be looking for?

  • Ball control and dribbling skills

  • Passing

  • Tackling

  • What you are doing when you do not have the ball

  • Shooting

  • Your overall impact on the game, no matter where you are playing on the field.

  • Teamwork

  • Coachability

Use your time playing at the tryouts to show off any or all of these skills. If you are interested in playing as goalkeeper, let the evaluators know.

If you have any questions about the 2023 – 2024 ELCO United Travel Tryout process, contact the Myerstown Soccer Club President
