Some traveled from as far as Spokane and Portland, and one even flew in from Michigan. They were led through a series of conditioning and skill drills followed by full-field scrimmages. SeaWolves’ owner/coach Alex Silva said he liked what he saw.

“It wasn’t the best conditions but I was happy with the turnout and the effort that we saw,” Silva said. “We saw a few players that I can see playing at this level and a few others we want to take another look at. We wanted to see how they played within a group and how well they take coaching and there were some who showed they might be able to help us this year.”

Silva estimates that about 15 of the 50 players from Saturday’s tryout would be invited to continue with the tryouts.

The SeaWolves will have the next leg of the tryout process in March, and may have a second open tryout to accommodate those unable to make the first one.

The second-year SeaWolves play in the Premier Development League, the highest level of amateur soccer in the United States. Their 16-game season begins in late May.

  1. It’s great to see this and a lot of it surely has to do with the number of MLS teams in the conference. A big boon to the non-MLS teams who will always get a kid trying out so they can catch the eye of an MLS team.
