Club Tijuana youth chapter resumes sign ups at san ysidro high

CHULA VISTA (March 6, 2017) –Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles continues with its commitment to be part of the community. This time, the Xoloitzcuintles want to reach people on both sides of the border with a second string of tryouts and sign ups to its youth chapter in the United States.


Xolos Academy FC in Chula Vista is looking for future Xoloitzcuintles and is holding tryouts and signups in March.


The academy chapter in Chula Vista is holding tryouts March 7 and March 9. It will be the first round of tryouts for the 2017 season. One more rounds of tryouts will take place this late winter/early spring.


Teams are being formed to compete in Cal South’s Presidio League and the San Diego Developmental Academy. Tryouts are from 5 to 8 p.m. (Pacific) at San Ysidro High.


Coaches will be looking to add boys and girls for the 2003 to 2005 categories in the second round of tryouts. The third round of tryouts is March 13 and 15 for the 1998 through 2002 categories.


Those who join Xolos Academy FC could be part of an organization that is directly tied to a Mexican professional soccer program. Coaches from the academy teach the same or similar ideas used in the senior team in Tijuana for competition and development.


The academy training not only focuses on the learning athletic skill to be a well-rounded soccer player but also an outstanding citizen off the field. It introduces young athletes to hard work, the ability to work in a group, to be dedicates and to be a responsible person.


The Xolos Academy FC is the only program in the United States operating under the Club Tijuana brand.


Xolos Academy FC, with affiliates in Oxnard, Calif., The Carolinas and New Jersey, is the stepping-stone to what could be a bright soccer career. Athletes have the chance to move through the Club Tijuana farm system and eventually having the possibility to be part of our professional teams. The academy has produced players that have moved on to be part of the “fuerzas basicas” farm system in Tijuana, some winning the Mexican National Under-15 title with the Xoloitzcuintles in 2015.


Athletes are encouraged to bring shorts, shin guards, a white shirt, bottled water and a soccer ball to the tryouts.
