Tryouts for Travel Teams

To join an Echo team, you must register to attend tryouts.  There is no cost to attend tryouts.  After tryouts are completed, if you are invited to join a team, you can register for that team within the allotted time period.

Next Echo Tryout

Our next tryout will be in early June of 2019.  This is a full tryout for all Echo travel teams in all age groups.

First Skills Registration

Registration for the First Skills Spring 2019 season will open soon and the season will begin after Spring Break.

Tryout Process Explained

General information.  To join an Echo travel team, you must register for and attend a tryout.  There is no cost to attend a tryout.

Tryout Dates.  The specific dates and a registration link will be posted to this page when available.  Tryouts are generally conducted at the following times:

  • June:  tryouts for the fall and spring seasons occur in early June of each year.
  • October/November:  supplemental tryouts are conducted around early November for high school players and to fill open roster spots on teams that were formed the previous June.  Players trying out at supplemental tryouts will be joining for the spring season and will tryout again in June.
  • Individual appointment:  generally, Echo does not conduct individual tryouts, but if you are interested in joining the club and do not have a current club affiliation, please contact us.

Location.  All June tryouts are held at Michiana Echo Fields @ HTP and November supplemental tryouts will be held indoors at Echo Training Center.

What to bring.  Players should wear shinguards and appropriate footwear (cleats for outdoor and turf shoes/flats for indoor).  Current Echo players may not wear Echo gear to tryouts.  Please bring a ball, plenty of water, and a great attitude!

Makeup dates.  Makeup dates will be provided if inclement weather requires a tryout session to be cancelled.

Evaluation process and goal.  Each age group will participate in a number of activities while being evaluated by a group of neutral evaluators based on certain criteria.  The goal of the tryout process is to group similarly skilled players together on teams, which provides the best environment for player development.

Invitations.  Invitations to join an Echo team are sent within a few days of tryouts.

First Skills Rec + Teams

There are no tryouts or evaluations for our First Skills Rec+ teams.  All you need to do is register and teams are randomly selected based on certain criteria in an attempt to have as much parity among teams as possible.  To register, visit our First Skills page.
