Oly Town FC scouts players at winter combine event in Southern California

LAKE FOREST, Calif. (January 25, 2023) — Oly Town Football Club continued its recruitment
efforts ahead of the 2023 USL League Two season by sending head coach Liviu Bird to the
PSC Combine in Southern California this week. Alongside a handful of coaches from all levels
of play across the U.S. and internationally, Bird watched more than 100 players showcase their
skills over three days.

“The PSC combines are great events, both for players to showcase themselves and also for
clubs of all levels to find players for their squads,” Bird said. “The agency has identified loads of
professional-quality players in its past, and I have found several for my teams over the years at
Oly Town’s level of play.”

Attending the PSC event is one of several player recruitment avenues that Oly Town FC is
exploring this offseason, which also include the club’s own tryouts, utilizing the network of local
coaches and scouts, discussions with college coaches across the nation, and fielding inquiries
directly from players.

“We have lots of ways to find players these days, and the combines are a great tool for us in
that process,” Bird said. “I would also encourage players to reach out to the club directly and
apply for our upcoming invitation-only tryout this spring.”
Bird can be reached via email at lbird@olytownfc.com. The club will announce the dates for its
invitational tryouts coming up ahead of the 2023 season, as well as the application process for
players to be considered for a spot.

The club will limit the number of players invited to the next step in its trial process, and the
number will be pared down further still ahead of the start of preseason training. Details and
future announcements will be made on the club’s website and social media channels.

Oly Town Football Club is a Washington State club that provides professional-amateur soccer
for both men and women. Founded in 2014, Oly Town competes in USL (outdoor) soccer and (indoor) soccer.

The Artesians also have youth soccer camps, youth tournaments and
free youth ticketing through the Oly Soccer Foundation.
