Download Tryout Flier | English or Spanish

The Santa Clara Lions and Santa Clara Sporting competitive soccer programs provide a competitive and fun developmental environment for youth soccer players to fulfill their potential. Our coaching philosophies are structured for players to develop their technical and tactical soccer skills, and teamwork and sportsmanship values.

We are holding tryouts and building competitive boys and girls soccer teams in the 2011-2008 birth years. Qualified players are evaluated and selected for a Santa Clara Lions or Santa Clara Sporting Teams.

Coaches evaulate players on the following criteria:

  • Mental strength (player focus, attitude and effort demonstrated)
  • Physical ability (speed, athleticism, agility and endurance)
  • Technical competence (ball skills)
  • Tactical awareness (offense and defensive skills in game situations)
  • Positive attitude ( towards players, officials, coaches and parents)

Upon the completion of tryouts, our staff will prepare a final list of players, with team assignment. A coach or staff member will contact each candidate’s family within 7 days of the completion the final tryout on DECEMBER 3rd. Notifications will be made regardless of whether or not your player will be offered a place on a team.

Please attend all tryouts to increase player evalution by our coaches. These competitie soccer programs requires an annual commitment as teams play both a Spring and Fall season. Teams will be formed based upon ability and during the year players will be evaluated to ensure they are playing at the appropriate level for their own personal development.
