There are multiple ways for interested players and families to try-out for the 2013-2014 FC Wisconsin Eclipse teams, to experience the training environment, and to talk to coaches and former players about the value of the FC Wisconsin Eclipse experience. The 2013-2014 FC Wisconsin Eclipse teams will be formed using a combination of Open Training Sessions and more formal Try-Outs - both offered at no cost to interested players. These different processes and dates are created to provide ample opportunity for interested players to see what makes FC Wisconsin Eclipse different!
Open Training Sessions:
These sessions will be “regular” ECNL training sessions with current ECNL teams. Any player from outside the teams, outside the club, or in younger age groups, is welcome to attend. There is no cost to attend an Open Training Session at FC Wisconsin Eclipse.
Dates and Times: All sessions are at FC Milwaukee Soccer Park in Germantown, WI on Fond Du Lac Avenue.
Age Groups: Any player that is currently a U11 – U17 is invited to attend any and all Open Training Sessions. (NOTE: Age group listings above for Open Training Sessions are next year’s age groups. For example, a current U14 would attend the “U15 and Under” time slots.)
Try-out dates are more formal player evaluation opportunities, and will still provide a sense of the daily training environment in the club. There is no cost to try-out for FC Wisconsin Eclipse.
