Reading United AC 2024 Season Tryouts March 9th

Welcome

Reading United 2024 Tryouts

Do you have what it takes to be on our 2024 Teams?

We have tryout dates for you to attend!

Reading United AC will be holding up to three tryouts between December and March for its 2024 men's USL league 2 squadmen's reserve squad, and women's WPSL squad.

The men's team looks to improve on their 5-4-7, 2023 record.  Let's turn some of those club-record-setting seven ties into wins!

The women's team looks to duplicate their inaugural season success (7-1-2) and reach the playoffs once again! 

What's in it for you?

Reading United AC treats its players right.

RUAC practices and plays our home games at Alvernia University Turf Field before an average of 350 fans.  Before every match, the teams eat a pre-game meal together.  Your Capelli sponsored kits are hung in the locker room for home games, and rain gear is provided in case of inclement weather.  Transportation to away games is provided by the club.  All you need to focus on is winning.

Exposure to professional scouts.

We have 145+ former players who have either gone on to play professionally, be drafted by an MLS club, or represent their country on the international stage. We have receipts (https://www.readingunitedac.com/alumni).

Exposure on social media. 

RUAC has an incredible social media presence, managed by some of the best social media interns!  RUAC’s Instagram account has 3598 followers, and has increased in followers by 150 each month since May 2022.  Not surprisingly, our top Instagram followers are located right here in Reading, PA, however our followers can be found in far off countries such as Brazil and Nigeria!  66% of our followers are between the ages of 18-34. More impressive is RUAC’s Twitter account.  RUAC has 3726 Twitter followers.  We average 108 tweets during the season with 34.5K tweet impressions and 15.6K profile visits!

Quality Coaching.

The men’s team is captained by Coach Casey Moore.  In addition to Reading, Coach Moore is the head coach for Alvernia men's soccer team, who are the  2023 ECAC Division III Men’s Soccer Champions.  Coach Kessler trains the men’s reserve team.  He is assistant coach at La Salle University and the Director of Goalkeeping at FC Delco.  Coach Gosselin took the RUAC women to the playoffs in their inaugural season.  “Goose” also is the assistant coach for Penn State Berks mens and womens soccer teams. 

Top level soccer. 

We're focusing on players who are dedicated to taking that next step. Not players who think of soccer as a hobby, but players who think of this as a stepping stone to a career. We take our job seriously to give you the tools to play professional soccer - we're looking for players who do the same. Both teams will have high level training once per day.  The men will play a 14 game regular season and the women will play a 10 game regular season schedule between May and July. Our men’s reserve team will train 3 times a week and participate in 6-7 friendly matches.  Our reserve team is there for a good reason.  Select players have and will be called to the USL2 team roster.   We expect a high level of soccer out of any player wearing the Reading United AC crest.
