The last two months have been a unique time in this century's history forcing everyone to put away their old version of normal and adopt a new version dictated by social responsibility. Our club tryouts are yet another event that we'll be doing differently in order to adapt to the pandemic that we are entrenched in. This year, we will be executing our tryouts completely online.
We are asking NEW Players wishing to join Heat United Soccer Club to participate in our NEW PLAYER TRYOUT PROCESS below.
All current Heat United players have been evaluated throughout their time playing in the 2019/2020 season and may register in the CURRENT PLAYER TRYOUT PROCESS below.
For those not sure which age group your son or daughter belongs in for the upcoming season, please see the following age group chart:VIEW AGE GROUP CHART
You are not required to submit videos for tryout as the coaches have already been observing your player for the 8 months prior to the COVID-19 lockdown.

If our Northeast region of Illinois is able to progress to “Restore Illinois” Phase 4 by the end of the summer (allowing gatherings of up to 50 coaches/players), we will also hold an on-site event for each age group to evaluate players on the field (~August). Timing of this event is dependent on when the government and/or Illinois Youth Soccer Association grants us permission to do so. All new players will have the opportunity to attend this event when we have firm dates and able to get outside.
New and existing players who are selected through their virtual tryout videos will be contacted directly by a coach for one of the following two reasons:
If you have any questions or would like to schedule a live virtual call, please reach out to our Director of Coaching:
