Late Tryouts

Travel Late Tryouts

Held in late July to early August, after initial team selections and placements. These tryouts are intended for new players that have recently moved into the Charlottesville area, players who could not participate in the Annual Tryouts due to injury or schedule conflicts, or players recommended by SOCA’s Director of Coaching.

Approval from the SOCA Travel Coaching Staff is required in order to participate in the late travel tryout.
For those interested in trying out for the Elite Program, please contact  Jimmy Tharpe
Charlottesville Travel program, Jimmy Tharpe
The Augusta Travel program, Mark Yursh

Please note:
There are very limited spots available at the late travel tryout and it is in the player’s best interest to attend the primary Annual Tryout. Coaches are under no obligation to fill roster spots or add players to a roster at the Late Tryouts.
