For the third consecutive year, Atlanta United and American Family Insurance will present Dream Tryouts, an open tryout for male players at least 17 years old. This year’s event will be held Sunday, Nov. 18 at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Training Ground in Marietta.
The American Family Insurance Dream Tryouts were created to give aspiring athletes the opportunity to try out for Atlanta United. Prior to its inaugural season in 2016, the club held four tryouts in Charlotte, N.C. and Birmingham, Ala., Nashville, Tenn. and Atlanta.
For more information, please visit www.atlutd.com/dreamtryouts (link to registration is on there too). Tryouts are for males of at least 17 years old only. No exceptions will be made. Limited space is available and spots will be filled on a first-come, first served basis. All participants must register. Cost is $150.
Two big things to know:
What is the structure of the tryouts? Am I guaranteed playing time?
The tryout will consist of 9v9 and 11v11 games so that players can be evaluated in game situations. Each player is guaranteed about 40 minutes of playing time per hour.
What do I need to bring on the day of the tryout?
You will need to bring wear your preferred soccer gear (boots, socks, shin guards, shorts, sliders). Atlanta United will provide you with a shirt to wear throughout the tryout. You will also need to bring your ID and Waiver form which you can download from the registration page.
