Chivas USA to hold Youth Academy tryouts

Players born from ’93-’99 can show their skills in front of representatives from Chivas USA

CARSON, Calif. (Wednesday, May 11, 2011) – Chivas USA will hold Youth Academy tryouts on June 3rd at the Bells Gardens Sports Complex and July 23th at Rancho Santa Susana Community Park in Simi Valley. Players born between 1993 and 1999 will have a chance to show their skills in front of Chivas USA’s Youth Team coaches.

The Chivas USA Academy runs at Bell Gardens and seeks to find and nurture new talent through a system that develops the athletic, physical and personal aspects of each player. Many players have moved from Chivas Academies into the Chivas USA U-14, U-16 and U-18 teams, which have provided several players to the first team in recent years, as well as to the youth national teams.

Spaces in the Youth Team tryouts cost $40, and spots are limited, so advance registration is highly recommended. Participants can find more information and register here: cdchivasusa.com/form/youthsoccer/2011tryouts. Questions can be directed to tryouts@cdchivasusa.com.
