The club will hold sessions Jan. 28-29 for aspiring professional players.

Racing Louisville FC will next month host open tryout sessions allowing aspiring players the chance to be evaluated by the NWSL club’s technical staff.

Registration has opened here at a cost of $125, which includes sessions Jan. 29 and 30 (Saturday-Sunday) at the Lynn Family Sports Vision & Training Center, 801 Edith Road. Those 17 and older pursuing a professional soccer career are eligible.

The club’s executive vice president of development, James O’Connor, head coach Kim Björkegren and other members of the technical staff will be on hand. Just last year, defender Nealy Martin emerged from Racing’s inaugural tryouts to eventually earn a pro contract with the club.

“We look forward to welcoming players who feel they can make the jump to join our squad,” O’Connor said. “Nealy Martin was a big success for us last year, and we are excited to see who can follow in her footsteps.”

All tryout participants will receive a T-shirt. Note that the sessions will be conducted outdoors on turf fields. Players are expected to bring the gear necessary to compete, including personal water bottles.

Tryout times and other information will be relayed to participants once they’re registered. Email Caitlyn Flores ( with any questions.
