The Patriots would like to thank each and everyone of the 17 players that registered and participated in our tryouts for the U14/15 Girls for the Fall/Spring 2019/2020. We were pleased with the level and eagerness of the players to show their skills.

Our official tryouts have concluded. However, if you are still looking for playing options for your 05 or 06 born daughter in a committed high level competitive team, you are in luck!

We still have a couple of spots that we would consider giving to the right players that have the attitude and commitment to succeed in a team like the Patriots 05 Girls.

Because we are looking to make the team stronger with quality players and we do not want players just to get money from them, we did not give out all our spots to players just to get a full roster.

So if your daughter would like to have a tryout, please register at this link and we will contact you with details to have her attend one of our July training sessions. (We are holding two weekly sessions through July)

Age: Players born in 2005 & 2006 will be considered (Download Flyer)

The Patriots Academy is the ONLY program in Northern Nevada with a fully written curriculum developed by coach John to follow the system of play set by US Soccer. Our curriculum follows the Dutch technical methodology and the scientific player development advances mastered by professor Vergine, head of the Fiorentina Academy, producers of top players for Serie A in Italy and throughout Europe.


We are looking for highly competitive players to fill a few spots available to complete the 18 player roster with quality players. The team, which has several ODP players in both age groups, 05’s & 06’s, is looking to compete as a purely “traveling” team at Gold-Premier events, college showcases & NorCal State Cup.

Players MUST register online to participate in the tryouts at the “Tryout Registration” link

Great Basin Youth Soccer League (GBYSL), and the PATRIOTS ACADEMY, strongly encourage ALL young athletes attending competitive soccer tryouts, to actively participate in different club or team tryouts. So that they may fully understand the training program or benefits that each team or club may offer to them. Participating in any soccer clubs or independent team tryouts does not register you to play, nor binds you to that particular club or team.

The Patriots Academy is organized to provide select players an environment where they can concentrate on soccer development, personal growth, and learning to win and succeed through the process. We aim to provide an environment where children learn and become motivated to participate, improving their opportunities to succeed on the field and off the field.

Through our continued work, we believe the Patriots Academy can reach children and youth in challenging circumstances through soccer; we can do our part to help the United States soccer community catch up with the rest of world; prevent top prospects from falling through the gaps; create cultural awareness, provide community service; and help develop self-esteem and character through organized social interaction.
