PDA Boys North Tryouts 2021 ( Somerset )

PDA Boys North Tryouts 2021 ( Somerset )


PDA Tryout COVID Protocols

Please see our try outs listed for our U7 - U19 Teams by clicking link below


We know our U15 - U19 try outs are later than those in our area. We simply feel is impossible to allow our players to develop in the High School ages when you are having try outs after only playing a handful of league games, we want our players to enjoy their season's not be on edge with roster placement. If  any player who is being asked to make a decision on another program but wants to try out for PDA, please email Sam Nellins our Technical Director snellins@aol.com and we will set up a trial.

For u13 and older we are putting teams to together to play in new MLS Youth National League / ECNL National League / USYS EDP National League. We believe strongly in our pathway model where players move between all levels of our club for training and game day rosters. "Development through Competition" is the foundation of our Club. This summer we will be sending 75 boys to College programs and we are proud of them all. Many of our current Academy level players played ECNL and EDP on their way through the club. Evaluation of our players is weekly through formal and informal meetings between staff and directors. Rosters often change based on players performance.


Thank you for your interest in the PDA North Boys ProgramPDA prides itself on developing elite soccer players through top-quality instruction and providing a clear pathway to the highest levels of the game. We are always looking for talented players with the desire, attitude and commitment to develop to their greatest potential. We provide opportunities in the following National Leagues; MLS Next, ECNL and EDP/USYS National League's (U13-U19) and all the top local leagues (U8-U12).
