In-Person Tryouts

2020 VHSC Tryout Information

VHSC holds tryouts every year to select players for travel teams based on the player's age and ability. This year our process is a bit different due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, our club is offering two ways to try out: in-person or virtually.

In-Person Tryout

Step 1: REGISTER TO TRYOUT HERE

Step 2: Our club's Director of Coaching, Oktay Akgun, will contact you to schedule your child's evaluation.
Step 3: Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled tryout time. Players should bring a soccer ball, a bottle of water and wear soccer cleats, shinguards and comfortable athletic clothing.

 

Location
Vernon Hills Athletic Complex Field #12

  • Players and parents should wear masks or face coverings from their car to the field and back. Players do not need to wear a mask while practicing/playing.
