Frequently Asked Questions

The purpose of ICEF’s tryouts is to select elite football players to participate in the Pro Residency program in Europe. All applicants who wish to enter the Pro Residency program must attend a tryout session and be assessed by ICEF’s Recruitment Team for admission. It is an excellent opportunity to see if you have the level to play in Europe.

All applicants who wish to join the Pro Residency program must attend a tryout (either in the United States or at the center in France). The Recruitment Team will only choose those players they believe are prepared physically, mentally, and emotionally and/or have the potential to compete at the highest level of football in the world. For weekly experiences, tryouts are not required.

Parents are welcome to watch their children’s performance from the stadium’s bleachers. Though they are not authorized on the field at any time, an individualized meeting will be organized with the coaches, and parents will receive a performance report upon completion of the trials.

You will be notified via email or phone of your admission decision within one week of your tryout date.
