All Topeka Select Tryouts will be held at Washburn Rural High School (5900 SW 61st Street, Topeka, KS).  Times will be published on Monday, May 21st at 5:00 pm.

All players are welcome to attend tryouts, whether or not they have ever played for TSSC. Players looking for a new team will be identified for all coaches within the age group to meet and evaluate. From there, all coaches in the age group will work together to find the best placement for as many players as possible in that age group.

Each year brings many changes for players across the region. Coaches, members of TSSC coaching staff and board members will be available throughout the entire process to answer any questions you might have.

For more information please contact Ron Schneider:


For competitive soccer, the entire playing year starts at tryouts. TSSC and every club in the region will hold tryouts the second weekend of June. Everyone wishing to play competitive soccer through TSSC needs to attend tryouts unless you’ve worked out specific permission through a coach.
