Tryout Registration

Tryout information for parents

For competitive soccer, the entire playing year starts at tryouts. OPSC and every club in the region will hold tryouts the second weekend of June. Everyone wishing to play competitive soccer through OPSC needs to attend tryouts unless you’ve worked out specific permission through your coach.

Player registration

All current OPSC players wishing to play for OPSC need to register for tryouts even if they can not attend tryouts. If you are a non-OPSC player and can not attend tryouts, please contact our director of coaching Christophe Nicot (cnicot@kumc.edu ) to inquire about teams.

Be sure to check for your player’s age group and for updates.

All players are welcome to attend tryouts, whether or not they have ever played for OPSC. Players looking for a new team will be identified for all coaches within the age group to meet and evaluate. From there, all coaches in the age group will work together to find the best placement for as many players as possible in that age group.

Each year brings many changes for players across the region. Coaches, members of the OPSC Coaching Committee and OPSC board members will be available throughout the entire process to answer any questions you might have.
