SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes announced today that the club will host an open tryout on Sunday, Jan. 29, presented by Advocare. The tryout will take place from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. PT at San Jose City College, located at 2100 Moorpark Avenue in San Jose.
Participants will have the opportunity to make the Earthquakes’ First Team or affiliate Premier Development League side Burlingame Dragons FC. The tryout will consist of three heats, which will each last 90 minutes, with the players competing in round robin scrimmages. Scouts from the Earthquakes and affiliates will be onsite to evaluate players.
A maximum of 200 participants will be allowed to try out. In order to sign up, players must be 18 years or older and no longer in high school. Each participant must also show proof of identification at the event. Trialists currently playing in college must check with their respective schools to confirm a professional tryout would not affect eligibility.
Registration is $150 per person, with all proceeds benefiting the Earthquakes Community Fund. In addition to the opportunity to make the Earthquakes or Dragons FC roster, each participant will receive a Quakes branded water bottle, drawstring bag and ticket voucher to an Earthquakes home game in 2017. All interested participants should register online. Registrants will receive information about their heat information the week of January 23.
