Player Evaluations

Fall 2022 and Summer 2023 Competitive Season


Your tryout fee is NON-REFUNDABLE. It does NOT commit a player to the club, nor does it guarantee players a spot on a team. Every traveling player must pay the tryout fee to be considered for placement on a traveling soccer team.

Tryout fees are $35 for all age groups.


Tryouts will be held at the Centennial Middle School - 399 Elm St, Lino Lakes, MN 55014.

Players should check in for tryouts 15 minutes prior to their scheduled session.

Welcome! We are excited you are considering playing for our club and being a part of the Centennial SC family. Our goal as a club is to make sure all kids have fun! In order to do that, tryouts are necessary to ensure kids are placed in the right league and team, so they are challenged appropriately. Each player will be assessed by experienced evaluators. A variety of soccer skills and situations will be evaluated. Players will receive a score that will be used for team placement. Upon completion of tryouts, a placement committee meets to determine player and team placement. Following tryouts, an email will be sent to you if you have an offer for a Spring/Summer competitive team.  At that point, each player and their family will make a decision to either accept or decline the team offered by the listed deadline. The player/family will then have until the deadline to accept or decline the offer by registering online.
