Louisville City FC will next month host its first open tryout sessions since before the COVID-19 pandemic started, allowing aspiring players the chance to be evaluated by the USL Championship club’s technical staff.
Registration has opened here at a cost of $125, which includes sessions Jan. 15-16 (Saturday-Sunday) at the Lynn Family Sports Vision & Training Center, 801 Edith Road. Those 17 and older pursuing a professional soccer career are eligible.
“This is a great opportunity for us to identify talent here in our own environment,” said LouCity’s head coach, Danny Cruz. “We are looking for players that we believe fit Louisville City both on and off the field, plus give prospects the valuable experience of being evaluated in a professional setting.”
All tryout participants will receive a T-shirt. Note that the sessions will be conducted outdoors on turf fields. Players are expected to bring the gear necessary to compete, including personal water bottles.
Along with Cruz, members of LouCity’s staff — assistant coach Simon Bird, goalkeepers coach Scott Budnick and youth academy directors — will be on hand to evaluate talent.
Tryout times and other information will be relayed to participants once they’re registered. Email Budnick (sbudnick@https://www.www.loucity.com) with any questions.
