Heat Youth Soccer Club and Academy Announces Open Tryouts

Select Teams Being Formed for Fall 2015 / Spring 2016 Play Season

 

 

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 (Laredo, TX): The Laredo Heat Youth Soccer Club and Academy has announced open tryouts for their Heat 02 Boys Red Select (Under 14/13), Heat 00 Boys Red Select (Under 16/15) and Heat 99 Boys Red Select (Under 17) on Tuesday, July 28th and Thursday, July 30th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on both days at the Texas A&M International University Soccer Complex.

 

The 02 Boys Red and 00 Boys Red Select Teams will be under the direction of former Monterrey Rayados and Heat player Dany Galvan who is currently the Laredo Heat’s Premier Development League Head Coach.

 

The 99 Boys Red Select Team will be coached by Claudio Arias and Mitch McKay.

 

A native of Owosso, MI, McKay joins the Laredo Heat Youth Soccer Club and Academy with an impressive soccer resume. Prior to his arrival in Laredo in April, McKay coached several youth teams in Tennessee and Arkansas and was a Staff Coach for the Arkansas Olympic Development Program.

 

McKay also coached collegiately at 9-time NAIA National Champion Lindsey Wilson College where he recruited and coached an impressive 9 NAIA All-Americans, including MLS Draft Selected Players Lebogang Moloto (Seattle Sounders – 2013) and Albert Edwards (Colorado Rapids – 2014).

 

With the open tryouts, the Heat Youth Soccer Club and Academy will attempt to select some of the best soccer talent in the Gateway City in the age groups announced and in order to help alleviate the cost of out of town travel, league registration fees and uniforms, players selected to play with the Under 14, Under 16 and Under 17 Select Teams will not have to pay monthly academy training fees.

 

The Heat 02 Boys Red Select, Heat 00 Boys Red Select and Heat 99 Boys Red Select will participate in the South Texas Youth Soccer Association (STYSA) Super II Division during the Fall 2015 Season in the hopes of qualifying for the STYSA Spring 2016 Cup Season.
