We really appreciate you taking the time to register for tryouts with Placer United for the 2020-2021 competitive soccer season.
We are very excited about the upcoming season coming off Club successes on the field, a high collegiate placement of our graduating seniors, and the enjoyment of watching some of our alumni play professional soccer on MLS and USL Pro teams.
For the upcoming 2020/2021 season, Placer United teams will compete in NorCal Premier League, NPL Champions League, Boys ECNL League, NorCal State Cup, Surf Cup, Las Vegas Showcase, and many other soccer events which over the years have brought the Club recognition locally, regionally, and nationally.
New For the 2020/2021 Season
Placing student-athletes into collegiate soccer programs is an important part of our club. Every year we place an average of twenty-five players into various college programs. Former players Grant Silvestre (Virginia) and Ty Thompson (Stanford) have won NCAA Div 1 titles. In addition, Ryan Hollingshead (UCLA/FC Dallas), Connor Halissey (Cal Berkeley/Sporting Kansas City), Seth Casiple (Cal Berkeley/Portland Timbers), Tucker Bone (US Air Force/Seattle Sounders), and Madalyn Schiffel (USF/Seattle Reign),, were drafted from college to professional teams. to see a history of our collegiate success, click here.
