Tryout Fee Reimbursement Program

Youth soccer tryouts should be free.  That's what we think.   But too many "premier" soccer clubs in the Seattle area treat them as a revenue opportunity and charge anywhere from $20 to $40 for a one or two day tryout lasting 3-4 hours total.  We've even seen some programs charging $75 for a tryout.  That's crazy!  Tryouts should be a two-way street.  It's not only a chance for a club to see your player, it's also a chance for players and their parents to check out a club, its coaches and its culture and decide whether it's a good fit for them.  So why don't players charge the club a tryout fee?  You could.  See how crazy it is?

 

There's a better way!  At Eagleclaw, we don't charge a tryout fee and you don't need to charge us one either.  Instead, we go out of our way to give you and your player an in-depth view of  our club, our coaches, our players and our training environment.  We treat tryouts as an investment by us in our club.  For example, our tryouts for 2003/4 boys will be conducted over 14 training sessions of 2 hours each.  Simple math:  That's up to 28 hours of free training for you and up to 28 hours for our coaches to get to know you.  And, you'll be training in our regularly scheduled Eagleclaw training sessions, giving you the perfect opportunity to get to know Eagleclaw as we really are.  Our tryouts at other ages may be shorter or longer, but they will always be free.

For our 2019/20 tryouts, we are going even further.  If you paid a tryout fee to another club, we want you to get your money back!  If your player attends Eagleclaw's free tryouts, is selected by our coaching staff to join the club and accepts the invitation and joins the club, we will discount your player's Annual Player Fee by the amount of money you paid that other club (See below for Eligibility, Terms and Conditions).  Yes, we will put our money where our mouth is.  Tryouts should be free!  Skip the "big box" so called "premier" teams and choose a better option like Eagleclaw where the development of every player is the top priority rather than "nickel and diming" parents. 

What are you waiting for?  Register for Eagleclaw tryouts and see the difference for yourself.  Best training.  Best coaches. Best player development.  Best training environment. No tryout fees.
