In addition to Indy Eleven’s coaching staff, representatives from neighboring clubs will be in attendance, allowing more opportunities for players to be scouted and continue their pathway to the pros. In attendance last year were South Bend Lions FC, Fort Wayne FC, and Lexington Sporting Club.
For a fifth straight season, Indiana’s Team was proud to have invited a tryout participant to join the squad for its preseason training camp. We join Indy Eleven Head Coach Mark Lowry in congratulating Matt Lockwood on earning his spot in the camp and following in the path of hopefuls who have fought for their place on the Boys in Blue.
A handful of Indy Eleven players have proven themselves during these Open Tryouts in recent years and made their way to First Team contracts including “Eleven Original” Don Smart, who went on to appear in over 100 games.
At all Indy Eleven tryouts, U-19 participants will also be considered for the Eleven’s standout USL Academy League & Cup squads. Indy’s Academy U-19 squad has won the Academy League in 2021 and USL Academy Cup in 2023.
