Tryout/Team Formation Process

Tryout and Team Formation Process

Welcome to the PRIDE SC Tryout and Team Formation information page for the 2023-2024 season!  PSC will be providing multiple opportunities to join a team for the 2023-2024.  Please see all of the details below and let us know if you have any questions!


Step 1

Create a Demosphere account via or login to current account and register for 2023-2024 Tryouts.  Picture and Birth Certificate is needed to compete registration.  Email address used during the registration process should be the email you want 2023-2024 Team offers and uniform order information sent to.

Step 2

Current PRIDE SC players who are registered for 2023-2024 Tryouts and are in good standing, can be given the opportunity to commit back to a team/age group without the need to attend an “open tryout” unless a PSC Staff Coach or Director recommends attending open tryouts.  Offers can also be made to players for the entire age group (ie – 2013 Boys), with a particular team (ie – Copa or Samba) placement coming at a later time or once the 23-24 season begins.   All current PSC players are continually evaluated for team placement during the season and Copa/Samba teams will be mixed at times during the season to assess players who can move up/down within the age group.  Extra training sessions or combining teams during training for further player evaluation may occur during this process.  Please note that players are evaluated for team placement based on the needs of the team and each age group every year. Current players are not guaranteed to be offered a spot back on the same team as the current season.  Offers to current players will be made throughout the month of May.  The timing of offers will depend on the dynamics of each age group. 


FOR NEW PLAYERS – “Open Training”
For the best 2023-2024 PSC Team placement, all players new to PRIDE SC (not currently on a PSC Team) are recommended to attend a PRIDE SC “open training” session May 10-23.   After completing 2023-2024 Tryout Registration (link above), players will receive an email confirmation that has the OPEN TRAINING SESSION RSVP FORM to request to attend at least one of these sessions.  If you have questions about these open training sessions or have conflicts with the schedule, please contact Mark Casperson (Girls Teams) or Alex Wentz (Boys Teams).  

The tryout and team formation process is fluid and some age groups may differ on exact timing of team formation and team offers.  Players can receive team offers throughout the “open training” process in May.   It is better to attend open training sessions earlier in the month. 


Step 3 – “Open Tryouts”
(Only If Necessary - New Players Should Attend Open Training)

Attend open tryouts on the following dates and times:

U7 (2017) - U12 (2012):  Tuesday, May 30, 6:00-7:30pm

U13 (2011) – U19 (2005): Wednesday, May 31, 6:00-7:30pm


All open tryouts will be held at:
Canal Winchester Middle School and Walnut Creek Park,
7155 Parkview Drive, Canal Winchester, OH 43110


Final Step - Commitment Process:
All current and new players who registered/attend 2023-2024 Tryouts  will be contacted during the team formation process regarding their team offer.  If you have questions about the specific team, please do not hesitate to ask the director or head coach. 

When a player is offered a spot, they will be asked to either accept or decline the offer as soon as possible – preferably within 48 hours of the offer.   To make this process as efficient as possible for 700+ players, electronic email offers will be the primary way offers are made, most players will not receive a phone call.  Parents are expected to check their email(s) during this process. 
In order to fully accept, players must select “accept” in the registration system, and then click to pay the deposit online.
