Tryouts

Capital East is committed to building character and excellence by offering a high quality, very affordable soccer experience to K-12 girls and boys from the Madison area. The club offers scholarships to those in need – we strongly believe that no child should be denied an opportunity to play soccer because of financial constraints. 

This page is intended to offer information for families and players looking to play for Capital East Soccer Club at ages of 11U and older. Beginning at 11U, tryouts are held to place players on teams of similar skill and commitment levels. Tryouts are held in accordance with the rules set by WYSA. Our goal at Capital East is to find a spot for every player to succeed, belong and continue to grow their love for soccer.

When

All tryouts occur the beginning of June.

Official time and locations will be announced by May (see schedule below)
