Ohio Galaxies FC will be conducting tryouts for their summer 2013 Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL) and United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) women’s teams on February 17th and February 24th at Wright State University Alumni Field. Tryouts will run from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. OGFC are excited about the chance to provide area female players the opportunity to train and compete at a competitive level while preparing for their fall 2013 collegiate season. Ohio galaxies are looking to place 24 to 30 players for each team.
Teams in the WPSL and USASA are comprised of current and former college players and high school age players U17 through U23. Team training will begin in late May and the competitive season runs through July.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to compete in a program which strictly focuses on development and promotion of women soccer players.
Last year, the OGFC WPSL team placed second with 3 wins and 2 ties in the Midwest Bracket of the WPSL. In an interview with Chris Black, head coach of the Ohio Galaxies WPSL team, he talked about the success of the team and the benefit of playing in the WPSL league in the 2012 season:
“Our team has performed well over the season (2012) and has really bought into becoming better individually and as a team throughout the summer. “
“In terms of women’s soccer in America, I think it is constantly evolving and getting better and better! The WPSL is a very good summer league for players to continue playing during their off-season. This is just another opportunity that wasn’t around 10 or 15 years ago and has really helped grow and get people excited about the game of soccer.”
The WPSL was formed in 1998. It is sanctioned by the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) as an affiliate of the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), the ruling body of soccer in the United States and FIFA the world’s ruling body for soccer. Teams in the WPSL are comprised of current or former college players and high school age players. The WPSL is an exciting, growing league whose focus is strictly upon the development and promotion of women soccer players. The Women’s Premier Soccer League is an independent national league whose main focus is on the development of highly competitive premier women’s soccer teams. The WPSL also makes every effort to bring quality soccer to all levels of the community and to promote the stature of female athletes as role models for our youth.
