U17 Information for next season 

*Please note- tryouts were held in July 2023 this year due to changes in KRVA regulations but have a spot potentially open for the upcoming season.  Please email coach Brandon with interest.

We are thrilled to announce that we will again be offering a U-17 club opportunity to local players looking to prepare for the higher levels of High School and playing collegiately. Depending on interest, we would  do a second team for the U17s.  We also would consider doing the second team as a combined 17s/18s team for those High School seniors attempting to play in college, since both levels are varsity/college level of play.


Please see the open gym and tryout information below for more details on the dates and times!

To register for one of the limited spots at open gyms and tryouts, please register on the registration page of the website AND get a KRVA tryout membership. 

Space is limited for all sessions and times are subject to change due to heavy demand. Don't miss out and register today!
