Tryouts for the Fall 2017/Spring 2018 Travel season are scheduled to run April 19 - May 4. Please note that we may have to make changes to the schedule if the grass fields have not dried out by April 19.  

Questions may be directed to 

For current Chatham United Travel players entering 10U-15U, a formula based on Current Trainer Evaluation (50%), Tryout Score (40%) and Current PM Feedback (10%) will be used to rank players and develop the teams.  (The Tryout Score is also used to calibrate across different trainers and PMs.) For current 8U TDP players entering 9U or 10U, a formula based on Current Trainer Evaluation (60%) and Tryout Score (40%) will be used. For new players the Tryout Score will count for 100%. 

Tryout Dates and Location: 

Players should attend both tryout sessions. The age group below is the group you qualify for in the 2017/2018 season.  You should attend the tryouts for the age group for which you registered.  Players that wish to “play up” should register and attend tryouts for the higher age group.

More information about 2017/2018 age groups and the rules for playing up may be found at our FAQ page. Full registration instructions may be found at our Registration pageThe registration deadline is April 6, 2017. 

The address for Passaic River Park is approximately 30 Roosevelt Road, Chatham Township NJ.  Directions to all Chatham fields may be found here. Roosevelt Road is off River Road, not far from Esternay Field.

Passaic River Park has a separate park entrance. Do not turn onto Roosevelt Road as this is a dead end street which is narrow and extremely difficult to turn around in. When driving from the center of Chatham on River Road go past Roosevelt Road and make a left into the Park - you will see a wooden sign for Passaic River Park. (In order to avoid GPS issues, please note that in addition to Roosevelt Road in Chatham Township there is a Roosevelt Avenue in Chatham Borough. Please do not go to Roosevelt Avenue. There is also another Passaic River Park in Berkeley Heights. Please do not go to Berkeley Heights.)

We are aware that the week of April 17 is Spring Break at St. Patrick's school. Players at St. Pat's who wish to try out for 9U-11U but are planning to be away that week should contact us at

Please note that the tryouts are administered by a third party using professional trainers.

We ask current Chatham United players to NOT wear any Chatham United clothing during the tryout.

All players should wear cleats and shin guards and bring a water bottle. Players should not wear any jewelry or hard hair accessories. Please do not bring a soccer ball. They will be provided. 

Parents: Please drop your child off for the tryouts and return to pick them up at the conclusion of their session. To be fair to all players and their evaluation, we are using a blind tryout format. Any parents that attempt to stay to watch the tryouts will be asked to leave.
