ALL Marin FC teams are reconstituted each year through tryouts. Players new to the club have an equal chance to earn a roster spot and likewise returning players must tryout to retain their position or advance in the team structure.
Players NEW to Marin FC MUST register in advance for tryouts by using the link above or clicking here. Current/returning players (those registered with Marin FC for the '21-'22 season) are automatically registered for tryouts, so DO NOT need to register.
We recommend attending as many sessions as possible but a minimum of two. If you anticipate you will miss one or more sessions, please inform the coaches at the sessions you do attend. The schedule for tryouts can be found at the link above or by clicking here.
Our club code of conduct applies to all tryout participants and spectators. Parents are NOT permitted on the fields during tryout sessions.
First and foremost, double check the tryout schedule in case there are any last minute changes or updates.
Plan to arrive at the tryout field a minimum of 15-20 minutes prior to the scheduled start of each session. Check in at the club tent(s) at the field entry.
Wear appropriate training gear including shorts, cleats, and shinguards. Bring your own water and do not share it. DO NOT wear any identifying club jersey or other apparel. Instead, a white or mostly white tee shirt is required. The club will provide team training bibs for the session.
We will provide medical kits and necessary assistance to any participant in need. Simple make yourself known to the club personnel at the check-in tent(s).
Lastly, we specifically schedule sessions to ease congestion during the overlap times between the end of a session and the start of a following session. Please plan pick-ups and drop offs accordingly to make things flow smoothly for all.
COACHING & TEAMS:
Marin FC provides an immense amount of financial aid. In 2021-22 for example, roughly $250,000 was allocated for players who demonstrated need and earned a spot on one of our teams. For 2022-2023 that amount is projected to reach almost $275,000.
You may apply for aid at any time and are encouraged to do so even BEFORE tryouts so that when you make a team you will be able to act quickly with regard to preserving your spot.
