Kingston Stockade FC to Hold Open Tryouts on Weekend of March 4-5; Interested Players Must Register Online

KINGSTON, N.Y. -- In an effort to continue to promote the beautiful game in the Hudson Valley, Kingston Stockade FC will be holding its second-annual open tryouts next month.

On Saturday, March 4 (9am-2pm) and Sunday, March 5 (9am-2pm) at Dietz Stadium, Stockade will hold open tryouts for all local players whom believe they're capable of playing semi-pro soccer.

Players interested in trying out for a spot on the team MUST REGISTER at before showing up. Players that don't pre-register will not be allowed to take the pitch.

Tryouts are open to fans and media too -- free of charge, no tickets required -- and Stockade merchandise will be on sale as well.

Stockade founder Dennis Crowley is excited to continue to give local products a chance to strut their stuff in front of the Stockade coaches and local fans as well.

"Last year's tryout was well attended, and we found some great players as well," said Crowley. "We're really excited to do it again this year and build a stronger connection to Hudson Valley soccer players and fans."

New head coach David Lindholm will be overseeing the tryouts.

Players can e-mail with any additional questions.
