The last training session prior to tryouts is this Saturday (02/22/2020)
at 8am-10am in the main gym.
Shin guards and a signed/completed emergency blue card are needed to participate.
Tryouts begin on Monday, 02/24/2020.
Details regarding try-outs: All coaches are required to stay on campus on Monday, February 24th to ensure all paperwork is complete for all players interested in trying out. Although we cannot have a try-out session that day, all athletes are requiredto get signed-in and ensure that paperwork is complete; to include physical, concussion training, and emergency card. After I hand in paperwork for all the players who have signed in, I am expected to go over team guidelines and expectations with all players interested in trying out.
I realize that the athletic department is asking you to turn-in paperwork prior to Feb. 24th; and I will have the emergency cards for all players who attend pre-season training. This does not change. The steps we all will follow are below:
You must hand in all your paperwork to the athletic department by Wednesday, February 19th.
If you are participating in pre-season training, I will have your emergency card.
I will provide a list of athletes interested in trying out for girls soccer to the athletic department.
Currently, my list includes the players receiving this email.
The athletic department will match the paperwork that they received to the names on the list that I provided.
Upperclassman are reminded to staple her concussion training to her physical BEFORE turning it in.
Monday, February 24th: All athletes trying out for spring sports are required to sign-in with his/her respective sport.
When you sign in with me, I will issue you a try-out number for you to use through the remainder of the week.
Once I have all the required information, I will turn the package into the athletic department.
After paperwork is complete, I will meet with you all as a group on campus.
I would like to meet with all seniors after the entire group meets.
Students trying out for girls soccer will be timed in a two-mile run on the school's track.
The timed run will take place AFTER we meet as a group.
The girls' soccer coaches will provide official time at the track.
Dress appropriately for the weather.
As long as all students have necessary paperwork, we can move to the track around 2:30pm-2:45pm. If paperwork is not in order, the time will be delayed.
For those who need picked up: Runners should be done by 3:15pm (AGAIN, as long as paperwork is in order). When we head out to the track, students can text the status update for an estimated completion time.
