Please note that registration for tryouts does NOT commit a player to register for the Royal Palm Beach Strikers for the upcoming season; nor does it confirm that a player has been selected for a team. Parents and players will be notified at tryouts or by email whether the player has been selected for a RPB Competitive Team. There is no fee to tryout.
Location: Katz Soccer Complex, 100 Sweetbay Lane, Royal Palm Beach, FL 33411
All players (including current players) are REQUIRED to register online. You will not be permitted to tryout unless you are registered online. Registration will reserve the player's tryout bib #.
If you are not able to register within 24 hours of the first scheduled tryout, you should arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the first session to register on site.
It is in the player's best interest to attend all tryout sessions.
RPB Strikers conducts open tryouts. Returning players are required to tryout in the same manner as players new to the club.
Only players and active technical staff are permitted on the playing surface during the tryout session. Parents should remain off the fields.
Players must attend the tryouts for their specific birth year. The technical staff will determine if it is appropriate for a player to tryout in an older age group. If a player is interested in trying out for an older age group, please follow this procedure:
Register online for age appropriate group tryouts.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: Player name, date of birth, current team, requested age group. The technical staff will be notified of your request.
All players are required to attend at least the FIRST session with their age appropriate age group (even if approved to tryout with an older group).
Players should NOT attend a tryout without appropriate registration as it will further delay the process, and the technical staff will not have your information on their evaluation sheets.
Players should arrive 20 minutes prior to each session to check-in and get their assigned numbered tryout pinnie.
This assigned numbered pinnie needs to be used by the players at each tryout they attend.
Please bring ball, water, shin guards and cleats to all tryouts.
The RPB Strikers coaching staff is led by Director of Coaching, Mal Hasan.
All RPB Competitive Teams are coached by USSF licensed coaches with extensive experience.
All coaches are selected and assigned to a team by the DOC.
The tryout process will occur over several days where players are evaluated based on all pertinent areas of the game for both current performance and predicted future performance.
During the process, evaluations from multiple staff coaches will be taken into account in order to select the team.
Teams are formed based on the results of entire age group tryouts.
RPB typically offers 1 team per age group, however, this number may vary from year-to-year based on the results of the tryout process.
Players will be notified at tryouts or via email to inform them if they have been selected for a competitive team.
