2024 Travel Season Tryouts
Tryouts will be held during the weeks of May 13 and May 20 at the Schenley Oval. More info to come closer to those dates.
Teams are formed by birth year (BY). The youngest players for the 2024-2025 season are birth year 2016.
There is no cost to try out. If a player is invited to join a team, the total fee for both Fall+Spring seasons will be paid during final registration steps.
Players should wear weather-appropriate soccer-playing clothing, shin guards, and cleats or tennis shoes, and should bring a ball and water.
Tryouts will be held in rain (but not in thunder or lightning).
Dynamo philosophy and tryout realities
Dynamo is an organization where we want to accommodate as many players as possible where a travel-level competitive atmosphere is the right fit. So, we do our best to place any players who try out to a team as long as those players have the requisite interest and openness to skill development. However, the reality is that we have limits on roster sizes, coaching staff, and field space. In some cases, players who try out will not be assigned to a team.
Dynamo organization and commission
Dynamo is an all-volunteer organization. We have day jobs that pay the bills.
Forming teams is a multiple constrained puzzle with players, coaches, ages, roster sizes, and communication with existing players and coaches (all of whom will be on vacation at different times) and so yes, it will take us until the end of June to form the teams for the coming fall.
If you like this kind of task, or have any other abilities that would help in running a youth sports organization, and want to help us out, please volunteer. We have several tasks that are stand alone / once or twice a year activities that don't involve answering email daily: team formation (summer), uniform order/distribution (summer), team equipment organization (summer, early spring), field equipment organization (summer, early spring), website updates (no html experience needed). Send an email to [email protected], and thank you!
