The Chattanooga Football Club will be holding open tryouts for spots on the roster for the 2019 season on Feb. 9 at Finley Stadium from 9-11 a.m.
Officials said, "Aspiring local soccer players will have their chance to shine in front of the club’s coaching staff."
General Manager Bill Elliott said, “In years past, we’ve identified some incredible impact players through these tryouts. We are eager to see who see comes out for the chance to be signed as a professional player.”
Some of the club’s most popular players were discovered through previous open tryouts such as David Perez, a fan favorite forward from Dalton.
An additional afternoon session may be scheduled based on the number of registrants.
Registration is $50 and players will receive a 2019 tryout T-shirt.
Space is extremely limited and availability will be handled on a first come, first served basis, it was stated.
“Open tryouts are an important part of our culture at Chattanooga FC as the community’s local club,” said Sheldon Grizzle, president of the club. “There is tremendous talent in our region and we hope they put their abilities on display for our staff.
“As we transition to professional contracts for our players in 2019, this is a great opportunity to help make local players’ dreams come true”.
Registration will be handled exclusively online here. Waivers also must be filled out here.
