What to Bring: A water bottle, your soccer gear and a size 4 ball. Please do not wear any articles of clothing that promotes a specific local Team or Club. This is the MISO Elite Team tryout, where players will be judged by their skills, not their affiliations.
Purpose: The purpose of these tryouts is to promote Hawaiʻi soccer and its players beyond the Hawaiian Islands and U.S. frontiers, by showcasing the players to some professional youth programs coaches & scouts. While doing this, also allowing the participating players an experience of a lifetime, as they’ll get to see first-hand how other countries embrace and integrate the sport into their cultures, as well as seeing firsthand how some of the professional teams train and run their facilities.
Selection of Players: The tryouts will be conducted by MJL Director of Coaching, Duke Hashimoto, and Javier Risco-Garcia, with the assistance of HSF. A series of drills will be performed to evaluate each player.

Costs: There will be a $40 fee for the tryouts. Additionally, there will be a trip cost for the selected players. The projected cost is $1,900 plus airfare. This cost will include accommodations, most meals, ground transportation, coaches & staff’s fees, uniforms, tournament fees and other necessary expenses. We are currently working with some travel agencies, hotels, and others to get the best prices possible. Once we finalize all arrangements, we’ll announce the entire package price. We will also approach potential sponsors to help keep the prices low. Parents are welcomed, but not obliged to travel with the Teams. MISO Elite will make all the necessary arrangements for the teams and parents to travel together and stay at the same or nearby hotels, as well as arrange all the ground transportation and events/functions that the teams and parents will attend/participate.
