Challenge Tryouts

2019-2020 Challenge Tryouts


2011 (U9) Program

The 2011 (U9) age group is a developmental portion of the Challenge program. All U9 players are required to attend Challenge tryouts again in the following Fall to be selected for a U10 team. This means all U9 Challenge players must tryout to make U10, this is done to ensure parity at the U10 level and above.

Returning Challenge Players

All returning (veteran) Challenge players born in 2009 (U10) - 2001 (U18) may return to their team from the previous season without attending tryouts as long as they register for "Intent to Play" by the registration deadline. This does not apply to 2011 (U9) players.


Dates and Times

Tryout check-in opens 45 minutes prior to the start of the first day of tryouts for each age group. Tryouts typically last 1 1/2 hours. Please plan to arrive to the complex at least 30 minutes prior to the start tryouts each day.

Tryout Details

Our intent is to have Challenge teams at every age group and gender in Raleigh, Cary, Wake Forest, Garner, Holly Springs, and Durham-Chapel Hill. Whether or not teams will be formed in each region depends upon try-out numbers and Director's discretion.

All tryout check-in will be in the Fitness Center at WRAL Soccer Complex. The Fitness Center is the blue building next to the club house.

Players are required to attend all scheduled days of their age group tryout.

If your child is selected to a NCFC Challenge team during supplemental/high school boys tryouts, you must complete their challenge team acceptance and challenge club fee payment. Both the team acceptance and club fee payment are completed online through your family account.

Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available to families experiencing family, medical, or extenuating financial hardships. Families wishing to submit a Financial Aid application should complete their application as they register for our NCFC Challenge tryouts. The 2019-2020 Financial Aid application cycle will open prior to tryouts. All players should submit their completed application prior to their Challenge tryout date. All applications received by the appropriate due date will receive first consideration and have the best opportunity to receive the most aid. Those received after the player's tryout will only be considered to the extent funds remain. We strongly encourage all players who need assistance with fees to submit their completed application (including financial supporting documentation) as early as possible.
