West Side Soccer League holds open tryouts for its travel teams once a year between early May and mid June. Any player may participate whether they are currently playing in West Side Soccer League's Core, Tournament or Travel programs or in another program.
Players interested in trying out must register for the tryout in order to let the League know how many players to expect in each tryout session. Notification of registration for tryouts will be made through West Side Soccer League as well as through various media outlets in the New York area.
For Fall 2014, WSSL will add 4 new teams at U9: two boys teams and two girls teams. Some teams will be expanding their rosters based on next year's playing format. Other teams have dedicated and talented players who are interested in returning next season. Those teams will have very few spots to fill via tryouts. That said, WSSL Red Bulls travel teams are looking for players who are interested in playing goalkeeper in every age group. Goalkeeper tryouts will take place during each age group tryout. Players trying out for goalkeeper will also have a field tryout during the session.
Official registration for travel team play takes place following the tryouts and before July 15. Players who are selected to play on a West Side Red Bulls team are committed to the team for a year -- including Fall and Spring seasons.
West Side Soccer League's Travel Program honors and respects the teams of other area clubs and will not accept any mid-season transfers, unless agreed upon by both organization's leadership. If you would like to join a West Side Soccer League Travel Team, the best way to do it is through the annual tryout process.

Registration for Fall 2014 tryouts will be new this year. Information on how to register will be posted following public school spring break.
Tryout registration will begin in late April and tryouts will take place between May 1 and June 15. Every age group will have a preliminary tryout and at least one call back session. Your tryout schedule will be sent to you upon registration.
