Sounders FC to Host Open Tryouts January 29-30

RENTON, WASH. – The Seattle Sounders FC will hold Open Tryouts on January 29-30, 2011, at the team’s training ground, the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, Washington. Tryouts will be conducted from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Open tryouts are open to male soccer players ages 18 years and older. Tryouts will feature small-sided as well as 11v11 games.

Players will be assessed by members of the Sounders FC technical and coaching staffs, including Head Coach Sigi Schmid, General Manager Adrian Hanauer and Technical Director Chris Henderson.

“We are always on the lookout for top level talent and we want a deep roster where everyone contributes,” said Henderson. “The Northwest is known for producing excellent players, and these tryouts provide an opportunity to evaluate talented players from this region and beyond.”

The registration cost for each player is $125. Space is limited and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Registration fees will go directly to the Sounders FC Youth Academy program.
