The ways to join CPL teams


1. Open tryouts

The Open tryouts are entirely different for each club, and it usually takes up to two days or more, depending on the organisation and schedule. If you fail to make the final shortlist, you should not worry too much.


Also, it is another avenue to increase your exposure to soccer.


Ways to succeed during tryouts


Tryouts are once in a while. The program usually once or twice a year, and you should take it upon yourself as a priority to impress scouts and representatives.


* High confident

Stay up-to-date and alert at all times. The key secret is to remain at your best during tryouts because scouts are always watching to measure your performance with other players.


* Choose a role

Before you head out for tryouts, you should have gotten a picture of what you are expected to do.


To increase your chances of getting picked, you should attend trials after choosing a role you can confidently play. To identify this, you can approach your trainer or your local team coach, who will recommend the best position for you.


Also, on your part, you could still access yourself to know the position you can easily play when you are allowed to play.


If you’ve already chosen to play as a forward or in a midfield position, you should stick to it and continue to improve yourself. Train regularly and be consistent with the role you’ve already chosen.


* Creating a personal training schedule

One of the ways to improve your game is by taking care of personal training. Train regularly, either alone or with teammates.


Advantages of the Open Tryouts

* You gain more exposure as you play alongside other young players nationwide.

* Your confidence level on the field of play is expected to increase even though you fail to impress.

* Opportunity to meet coaches and scouts who could pick up interest in you based on your performance.


2. CPLโ€“U Sports Draft


The CPLโ€“U Sports Draft is a soccer development program created to help young players in colleges or universities accelerate their careers. It is an annual soccer development event in which Canadian Premier League clubs select players from U Sports.


The CPLโ€“U Sports Draft consists of two rounds for teams and players. Drafted or selected players at the end of the event will be invited to the CPL team’s preseason camp, which promises to earn them their first pro contract.


Eligible for CPLโ€“U Sports Draft

  • Players with one or more years of U Sports eligibility remaining and have declared for the draft


  • Players with the previous season’s development contracts can retain their CPL clubs if they have U Sports eligibility.


  • Players without contracts with CPL teams would be eligible to re-enter the draft.


3. Apply directly


It would help if you considered applying directly for a place in CPL teams. You can kickstart today by completing your CV, highlights or videotapes of yourself and using them now.


The Canadian Premier League is still new, and clubs are looking for players who could adapt to their philosophy and style of play.


How to contact Canadian Premier League (CPL teams) for trials


Step: 1 Head to the CPL official website on

Step 2: Head over to the CPL club’s section and click on the club you want to join.

Step 3 Click on Club Overview and select the “Contact” button.

Step 4: You will be presented with an official contact form. Here, you can fill in details and videotapes you’ve recorded.


Although it is not limited, Canadians interested could still contact these clubs directly through the CPL website.


4. Agent and soccer scouts


Agents and soccer scouts are recommended options. If you can find a good agent willing to charge you less, you can deal with him so he can do all the work for you.


Top agents contact these Canadian Premier League clubs, which could fast-track your approval or trial invitation.


5. Visit CPL teams’ training sessions


You could still find your way to the team by visiting training sessions of Canadian Premier League clubs. As you see, you could speak to coaches or trainers to share your intentions of becoming part of their team.

Canadian Premier League rules to help young players


* There should be a minimum of six Canadian starters per game.


* Foreign players in the CPL are limited to seven per team to encourage Canadian participation and development.


* About three of the domestic players must be under the age of 21 to encourage player development.


Wrapping up

Soccer is another popular sport in Canada. With the creation of the CPL, the country’s soccer level would grow beyond the current level.


Canadian Premier League teams carry out tryouts across various locations in Canada to scout qualified players.


Players interested in joining CPL clubs in Canada could pass through Open Tryouts, CPLโ€“U Sports Draft, Agents / Scouts or Direct Application.
