If you are interested in trying out for Soccer at KO Knudson please begin your registration at registermyathlete.com. Once fully registered, your athlete will be eligible to try out for the teams. Tryouts do not guarantee placement on a team. Students will NOT be able to play on a team if this registration is not completed before the first game.
