South Bay Tryouts & Pre-Tryout Clinics

Players interested in joining a Sunshine team for the 2018-2019 season need to attend tryouts on October 6, and should also attend our pre-tryout clinics offered during September and early October.  These clinics are your chance to experience what it's like to play for Sunshine,  work out with next year's coaches, and get valuable playing experience.   If you are thinking about playing for Sunshine, we encourage you to join us for as many pre-tryout clinics as you can.  

For 12-and-under players we offer  teams that practice one, two, or three days a week, and have both travel and non-travel teams.    You'll find more information about our teams at the bottom of this page.


Pre-Tryout Clinics

Clinics are held at AMERICAN MARTYRS SCHOOL in Manhattan Beach.  Fee is $25 per clinic, paid at the door.  Or, pre-pay for the Pre-Tryout Class Pass and come to ALL the clinics in your age group for $250. Register online (link at top of page) or just show up!  Walk-in's are welcome.
