Staff Reports

The Nevada Wonders of the Premier Development League (PDL) will hold tryouts on Saturday at Carson High. The tryout will start at noon and could last until 5 p.m. The tryout will now be held at the main soccer field in the back of the school and not the front soccer field, where it had orginally been scheduled. High school officials decided to switch the tryouts to the main field, according to general manager Randy Roser.

The Nevada Wonders announced their 2003 schedule on Monday. They will open the season against the Fresno Fuego on April 20 in Fresno, Calif. The Wonders’ first four games are on the road before their home opener on May 10 against the Southern California Seahorses at 7:30 p.m. at Carson High.

This will the first season in the PDL for the Carson City-based club, which will be a member of the Southwest Division of the Western Conference. PDL teams must have a minimum of three U-19 players on their 26-man roster and can also have five international players and eight players over 23-years-old.

PDL is a semi-pro league which serves as the lowest level of the United Soccer Leagues (USL). Major League Soccer (MLS) is the USL’s highest level, followed by the A-League and the Pro Select League (formerly the D-3 Pro League).
