Welcome! 
New this year SAFER SOCCER TRYOUTS!  Please see our player evaluation schedule plan with Safety in mind for us all!

Skill assessments otherwise known as Travel team tryouts will be held in April & May for teams forming for fall 2021 /spring 2022 league play.

All travel team players new to the MLU travel program are required to attend at least one tryout, and two tryouts are recommended. Players who are currently on an MLU travel soccer team are required to attend tryouts as well. Each year a new team is formed from existing players and new players. 

Everyone that wants to play travel must register for tryouts online. 

Tryouts are free, there is no registration fee until your player accepts a position a team. 

Tryouts for teams for children with birth-year of 2003 through 2015 are scheduled and make-up dates will be scheduled as needed. You may check for the appropriate age group for your child on the age group chart below. 

For players with birth years 2006 and up, high school age players who will play on spring only teams, tryouts will be scheduled as needed by teams and will be posted on this page. 

Because all children should attend the tryout for their birth year. Children who are playing- up, should also attend a tryout for that birth year.

Who is eligible to try-out for a team?

MLU tryouts are open to all area youth. The minimum age requirement is birth-year 2015. The age requirement is determined by the league to which teams are registered. If your player does not currently play for an MLU travel team we require a copy of your players birth certificate, or passport to be uploaded at the time of registration or presented at tryout check-in. We must verify all player birth years before your player can be placed on a team, as the leagues to which our teams join, hold age group parameters.

How far do we "TRAVEL?"

The majority of teams play in the South Jersey Soccer League ( for boys) and South Jersey Girls Soccer League (for girls) and play 10 games in the fall and 10 games in the spring. 5 of the games are home and 5 away. Generally, the away games are an average of 30 minutes of travel time, however, they can be up to an hour. We also have teams that participate in other leagues, National League and Elite Development Program (EDP)

High School Age Tryouts

High school team formation falls into two categories,fall and spring league play and spring only league play. Some players are on a high school  team and do not participate in league play. Some do not participate in high school  team play and may be interested in league play for the fall. Generally, the players whom play for their high school team in the fall participate in spring league play. Please speak with your team coach concerning a fall team. Team formation will be dependent on the who is interested for which teams. Tryout dates to be determined.

2020 Fall / 2021 Spring Travel Age Group Definitions

When determining the age group for the seasonal year, the year the season ends should be used for determining the birth year.
Also note that the format “U followed by age” really means that age and younger.
For example, U8 should be read as 8 and younger. For the purposes of calculation, it is the second year of a split-year competitive season which determines what number should be used to calculate age group. Example: 2022 – U8 = 2014 birth year.
