What to bring to tryouts?

  1. Strong work ethic

-Sophomores are to wear yellow colored shirts all three days    

-Juniors are to wear red colored shirts all three days

What will tryouts consist of?

You will play small/large sided games in which your soccer knowledge, understanding, and tactics are tested and evaluated.

You will also be tested and scored in different areas.

Athletes are NOT required to earn specific scores to make any team.

  1. 40 yard dash    (Expected times 4.5-5.5)
  2. 2 Mile run (Expected times: 15 minutes)
  3. Standing Broad jump (Expected jump: 6-10 feet)
  4. Shooting (shooting at 10 targets in 60 seconds)
  5. Passing (10 passes at 10 targets in 60 seconds)
  6. Juggling (Expected score: over 100 in three combined attempts)
  7. Dribbling (Expected time: Under 25 seconds)
  8. Push-ups (Expected score: Over 50 in two minutes)
  9. Sit-ups (Expected score: Over 65 in two minutes)

Athletes are NOT required to earn specific scores to make any team.

These numbers allow us to compare/contrast between athletes, but more importantly to show improvements from one year to the next. Scoring high does not automatically place anyone on any team. Soccer knowledge/IQ/ability obviously plays a significant role in determining what, if any team will be made. 

*Politics plays no role in which team you play on, what position you play, or how much you play on either squad. The coaches will do what they think is best for the program-independent of outside influence.

T-Shirts/Socks: For those JV players and returning varsity players that need practice T-shirts ($12 each, $48 for all four), it is my understanding that we will have someone available Saturday at the team lunch, to buy the shirts from.

Socks will be either $13 or $14.
