Red Stars staff will evaluate potential professionals
CHICAGO – The Chicago Red Stars are pleased to announce that open tryouts have been finalized for the 2017 campaign. Players who believe they can compete for a spot with the back-to-back National Women’s Soccer League semifinalists may register now to participate on Thursday, February 23, 2017 for a session led by Head Coach Rory Dames and coaching staff.
The following tryout session on February 24 will be for call-back players only. The combine will take place at the Athletico Center (1900 Old Willow Road, Northbrook, Illinois 60062).
In order to participate in the combine, each player must be a college senior or post-college, submit the registration fee and send in a completed registration form and liability waiver prior to the tryout. The entire application can be conveniently prepared and submitted here. Upon completion of registration you will receive a confirmation email.
The Red Stars have continuously had a strong turnout at open tryouts, with a handful of participants invited to the club’s official preseason training camp. During the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, the Red Stars were in need of players to fill roles during the NWSL season and many of them came from the open tryout process. Many of these participants were chosen to take part in the Red Stars Reserve program (2015 WPSL National Champions and 2016 WPSL National Semifinalists) and were called up throughout the season to fill-in during the World Cup and Olympic stages.
The Chicago Red Stars kickoff the 2017 NWSL season in the spring. Season tickets and flex packs are currently on sale here or can be ordered through a ticket representative at 773.697.8699.
