The San Jose Earthquakes announced today that the club will hold an open tryout on Sunday, January 31. The tryout runs from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will be located at the San Jose State Soccer Complex on S. 10th St. between E. Alma Ave. and E. Humboldt St. in San Jose.
Participants will have the opportunity to make the club’s first team or affiliate Premier Development League team, the Burlingame Dragons. The tryout will consist of three heats between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Each heat will last 90 minutes, with each player on the field for a pair of 30-minute scrimmages. Scouts from the club, including Burlingame Dragons FC head coach Eric Bucchere, 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 and a ticket voucher to an Earthquakes home game. All interested participants should register online. A member of the club’s front office will notify registrants about their heat information the week of January 25.
