AP Select is designed for players looking to take the next step into Competitive Soccer. Every year, AP Select is open to new and returning players. Tryouts and evaluations are conducted to determine placement on our teams. Players will go through soccer related exercises and small sided games allowing coaches to evaluate their skill sets and determine the appropriate level of placement.

The tryout times typically are staggered by boys/girls and by age group. Once you register for tryouts, you will receive regular emails and updates regarding schedules and times of tryouts.

There is no cost to try out.

Any player who doesn’t make an AP Select team will still be able to register for Recreational soccer if desired. If you’ve already paid the recreational soccer fee and successfully make a Select team, credit for any fees paid are applied to the Select team registration fees.


Tryouts will be held at Orville Wright Park, located at 2331 St Marks Way, Sacramento 95864. (There is a parking lot that can be accessed using the St Marks side of the park.)

This season's tryout schedule will take place over two weekends, separated by age group. Please find your player's age group and birth year below for your exact tryout date and time.

U9 - U14 (Birth Year 2016 - 2011)
May 18th (Sat), 19th (Sun), and 20th (Mon)

U15 - U19 (Birth Year 2010 - 2006)
June 1st (Sat), 2nd (Sun), and 3rd (Mon)


To register for tryouts, please complete the signup form.



  • Wear soccer cleats and shin guards
  • Bring a soccer ball (U9-U12 = Size 4, U13-U19 = Size 5)
  • Bring enough water for a 1.5-hour session
  • Wear weather appropriate attire as we will hold tryouts rain or shine (excluding extreme or dangerous weather conditions)
  • All players under the age of 18, on or before the tryout date, must have a parent or guardian accompany the player to check-in to be able to participate in the tryout.
  • AP Select’s goal is to form age-pure teams but trying out for one (1) age group higher is allowed in U9 to U16.
  • A player must attend at least one (1) tryout session (for each age group they are trying out for) in order to get an offer to join the team. It is highly recommended to attend all tryout dates. If a player is injured and cannot participate in the tryout exercises, they must check in and observe the tryout of their age group in order to be eligible.

Please Note: If your player is not selected for an AP Select team, they are still be able to register for a recreational team.
