The time has arrived! I hope everyone is excited for the start of our season.
Wednesday, March 1 will be the first day of tryouts. If the
weather allows us to be outside, we will be at the field from 3:30-5:30
on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. If we need to be inside, we will be
at the Armory gym(on Jackson St. across from the
high school field). Wednesday will be 5:30-7:30, Thursday 3:30-5:30, and
Friday 5:30-7:30. I am hoping to have a practice on Saturday as well. I
am not sure where or when yet.
GIRLS MUST ATTEND ALL 3 DAYS OF TRYOUTS. If you cannot, you must
let me know ASAP and I will assess your situation and try to accommodate
you(no promises though). As far as I am concerned March 1 is the start
of our season. Our focus needs to be on soccer
and our team.
Tryouts will be a test of your fitness level, your technical ball
skills, and your tactical knowledge of the game. You will be expected to
come prepared mentally and physically to give the coaches the best
chance to assess your abilities.
I may or may not make cuts after Friday. I have about 28 girls by
my count that are going to try out. Last year we had 39. We have a
maximum of 32 spots available. Though I reserve the right to keep less.
It is possible that every girl who shows up may
make the team.
Since we are traveling to Canada over spring break, You are
essentially trying out to make the traveling team. I will name the 16
girls that will be going to Victoria after Friday. If anyone knows they
are unavailable for that trip, let me know ASAP.
There will be a mandatory player/parent meeting on Saturday at
4:00 in the school library. Please come with your school activity packet
completed and your physical form included, with a check to pay the
school activity fee.
I hope you girls have been getting your sign renewal forms
completed. So far, I have only 10 out of 50 handed back to me. If you
have any, you can give them to me at tryouts or the meeting.
See you on Wednesday.
