TRYOUT PROCEDURE AND INFORMATION

Players/Parents,

We are excited to see you all at the GPS Iowa Tryouts over the next few weeks. Below is the tryout procedure and information.

All sessions will take place at Spring Creek Sports Complex (7600 NE 38th Ave, Altoona, IA 50009)

Tryout process

  1. Check in at the concession stand 20 minutes before your tryout time 
  2. Receive your tryout t-shirt (priority on t-shirt size in order of when you registered)
  3. Get your head shot picture taken
  4. Players go to the turf for warm ups/introductions 
  5. Parents go to the turf seating for a brief parents meeting

Parents WILL NOT be allowed at the field during the tryout. Please attend the parent meeting and then leave the field location and return when the tryout is complete.
