Local soccer players can try out for Orlando City Soccer Club's U-23 team on April 19 at the UCF Track and Soccer Complex.
The team for players under 23 years old is based in Lake Mary and plays in the Premier Development League. Players can register on the Lions' website. Registration costs $80.
"We are looking forward to the U-23s season and open tryouts," said Orlando City U-23s head coach Darren Powell in a release on the Orlando City Soccer website. "We are excited to see the level of players at the tryouts and encourage anyone interested in potentially joining us this summer to attend."
Since arriving in Orlando in 2010, three former U-23 players progressed into the professional team after exceptional performance. Assessment will occur over a two-hour period with up to 12 players on each team.
