Players have the opportunity to be selected from the open tryout into the final selected pool of players per age group.

Players attending the open tryouts are encouraged to attend 2 sessions at maximum from the sessions offered. Players from open tryouts will be selected to attend call back tryouts.
2016-2017 Phoenix Travel Roster Players (ONLY APPLIES TO WASHINGTON TRYOUTS)
Any players from the previous year who were selected to travel to Phoenix from the Region IV ODP Championships must register for tryouts and pay the registration fee. Players are not required to attend the open tryouts, but must attend the call back tryouts to be considered for the final pool. Registered players will be notified of the call back tryout dates and location. **This in NO way ensures the player will make the final player pool for this year's cycle.
How to determine if your player should tryout for Eastern WA or WA EPD:
WA Youth Soccer will use the District 6 boundary line as a determined border between WA & EWA EPD. A player can tryout for either WA or EWA EPD if they live within 50 miles on either side of the boundary line. Players who were in the final pool of WA EPD during the 2016-2017 program cycle can be grandfathered in WA EPD. A player can tryout within the boundary of where his/her club soccer team home field is located and/or home address.
