Open Trials are a set number of specific trial dates, normally between 1 to 2, taking place before the start of season and as necessary throughout the season.
Youth players are grouped in their respective ages. Professional soccer evaluators measure a player’s technical skills by implementing specific player performance exercises, providing a complete technical profile for each youth trial participant.
Apart from the technical evaluation, evaluators also assess a player’s overall understanding of the game through match play. Open Trials decisions are made normally 7 to 10 days after all open trial dates have concluded.
