Sounders 2 to hold open tryout at Starfire in mid-February

S2, the Sounders’ new USL-Pro team, will host an open local tryout at Starfire Sports Complex on Feb. 13-14 with at least one player guaranteed a trial with the minor league squad.

“The greater Seattle area has a long history of competitive youth, amateur and professional soccer, which has produced many great players,” said S2 general manager Andrew Opatkiewicz. “Since S2 allows us to develop more players in our system that hope to make the first team one day, open tryouts are a great way to look at the best players in the area.

“Someone is going to come into preseason, and it’ll be exciting to see the players coming from tryouts competing for a professional contract.”

The particulars:

  • Tryouts are open to male soccer players ages 18 and older.
  • Check-in is set to begin at 4:00 p.m. PST on Friday, February 13 with games starting at 4:30 p.m. PST.
  • Select participants will be chosen to compete in a full-sided game on Saturday, February 14 at 1:30 p.m. PST.
  • The registration cost for each player is $150 — the deadline for registration is Feb. 4.
