Tacoma Stars Announce 2015 Open Tryouts

by Brett Gleason

TACOMA, Wash. -- The Tacoma Stars look to add local talent to their roster when they host open trials at the Tacoma Soccer Center on August 14th-16th.

The three-day tryout is an opportunity for the area’s premiere soccer talent to join the Stars roster leading up to the franchise’s first full season playing in the Major Arena Soccer League. Stars coaches and players will be on-site to help identify players who can contribute to all facets of the club.

“We are looking for professional players that understand the sport of indoor soccer and will make us competitive from the very beginning,” Tacoma Stars GM and head coach Darren Sawatzky said. “We welcome players from all backgrounds with varied experiences. I expect to see some quality players at the combine but we are also looking for quality people.”

The first day will be open entirely to the public, with top performers invited back to participate on the second day of trails. The third and final day will pit the remaining trailists against all-stars from the Western Indoor Soccer League (WISL) in an effort to showcase the talent level of competitors.

“We look forward to the partnership with the WISL and developing local players,” Sawatzky said.  “We hope to find as many local players as possible for the Tacoma Stars now and in the future.”

All fans are invited to attend the match on Sunday, August 16th between all-stars from the WISL and trialists from the Tacoma Stars open tryout. Tickets to attend the match begin at $3 and may be purchased at www.tacomastars.com.
