Tryouts

Registration For Tryouts

Registration for tryouts is now closed. We will be taking walk-on registrations at the field, so show up at your age group's time anyways and we'll get you registered there! You will need to fill out a "walk-on registration form", which you can find below or at the Vikings canopy at the tryout fields.

For players born in 2006 or younger, tryouts will take place on April 27th (Polo Fields) and 28th (Beach Chalet). You can find the schedule either at the bottom of this page or by clicking here.

For players born in 2005 or older, contact the Vikings office to attend a practice in order to tryout.

You do not need to attend tryouts if you are planning on joining a recreational team.

Proof of Residency

You will need to provide either three documents displaying your home address, or a communication from your child's school that displays your home address. Please be sure your home address is clear on these documents!

Initial Payment

Make your initial payment here. You will first need to register to the team on Affinity after creating an account. You can find instructions just below this link in a document titled "Vikings Player Registration Instructions".

  • Ensure all SF teams and clubs are treated the same regardless of affiliations

Applicable to All Teams or Clubs Wishing to Receive SF City Fields for Games or Practices in Fall 2019

[1] We wish that there was more time between the tryouts and deadline for submitting paperwork. However, US Club was unwilling to change the date. SFRPD could not delay our deadline more or that would not be enough time to complete field allocations before summer.
