Orono Thunder requires that all players attend tryouts for the Competitive Soccer Program. Registration for Tryouts will open on June 15th, and Tryouts occur annually in late July or early August.   Registering for, and attending, our tryouts does not bind a player to our club. Tryouts help us form teams with players of similar soccer abilities. Teams formed with similar abilities allow us to individualize training activities to meet player needs, improve game day performance, and adequately challenge players. It is our belief that all players have the chance to succeed, grow and enjoy the game as a life long skill. Playing above or below one’s level can lead to frustration or boredom. Please help support the Orono Soccer program by supporting your child – whatever level he or she is placed at.
