The Edmonds-based North Sound SeaWolves will hold an open tryout from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 30 at Edmonds Community College, 20000 68th Avenue West, Lynnwood. (There will be a break from noon-2 p.m.)
The tryout is open to anyone 16 and older and the registration fee is $39. Those younger than 18 must have a parent present at the tryout and parents must sign a waiver. Those interested should register at the team’s website. No walk-up registration will be offered and the deadline to register is 4 p.m. Friday, March 29.
“We play in one of the best divisions in the PDL and the level of play in this division means we’re looking for players who have played at a very high level and are looking to further their careers,” SeaWolves coach Ed Moore said. “We are looking for players who have the technical, tactical and physical abilities to perform at a high level. It’s also important for those players to be excited about being involved in the community as they’ll be asked to play an active part in developing partnerships with our fans and community.”
Players selected from the tryout will continue on to play in preseason games with the team.
The Edmonds-based SeaWolves are a member of the Northwest Division of the Premier Development League, the highest level of amateur soccer in the United States. The division includes developmental teams of Major League Soccer’s Portland Timbers, Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps. About 70 percent of players on MLS rosters spent some time in the PDL.
The SeaWolves’ season runs from May-July, with the season-opener May 18 at Edmonds Stadium against the Portland Timbers U-23 team.
