GET IN THE GAME

We offer 2 levels of youth teams to accommodate all abilities and skill levels. All players who tryout are placed on one of our teams – LOCAL team or TRAVEL team. More team details are listed below.

When you register for tryouts please let us know what level of team you are trying out for. Placement onto a Travel team is not guaranteed but all players are eligible to make our Local teams.

Winter tryouts for boys and girls will be October 23rd. You will receive tryout times on your registration receipt. The $50 tryout fee will be applied to the season dues. Tryouts will be held at our general practice facility at Play by Play Productions in San Marcos (1601 San Elijo Rd, San Marcos CA, 92078).

When you register for tryouts please let us know what level of team you are trying out for the Local or Travel teams. Placement onto a Travel team is not guaranteed but all players are eligible to make a local team.

Each season San Diego Sol will conduct tryouts for its various teams. Each prospective player must come to tryouts prepared and ready to show his/her basketball abilities. Former and current San Diego Sol players are not guaranteed a playing position on any team. Earning a position on a team will be based on upon the following criteria:

skills and ability
heart, effort and hustle
commitment to the team
work ethic and drive
coachability and respect

At the club’s discretion, individual players may be moved from one team to another. As any player’s skills and commitment level improve, we may ask the player to move to a higher-level team. These changes in the roster might be necessary to assure the appropriate competitive level for each team and to insure the maximum benefit to each player.

All teams practice twice a week. Youth teams normally practice on Mondays/Wednesdays or Mondays/Thursdays but other day combinations may occur. Potential practice times are 4:00-5:30pm, 5:45-7:15pm and 7:30-9pm with the younger teams generally practicing in the earlier time slots. Specific practice times are determined after tryouts when the teams are being formed. All practices are held at Play by Play Productions in San Marcos (1601 San Elijo Rd, San Marcos CA, 92078).
