Tryouts

Yes, yes, yes...it's still over five months away...but come on...I'm thinking about it, so I'm guessing a few of you are as well. 

Tryouts are on February 25th and 26th. The time and place, however, are To Be Determined.

So, if you're interested in trying out for the Men's Team, you'll want to know a few things. 

First, we'll field roughly 35 players--Varsity and JV combined. We do not have a frosh team, or even a sophomore team. Instead, we just have JV and Varsity. They are not separate. We do nearly everything together, rather than separate the two squads.

Secondly, we will be having an informational meeting in late October (after the fall break). I'll make announcements a few days in advance. It will probably double as a pre-season fundraising opportunity for the program.

Third, we will run a preseason conditioning camp. It will include conditioning in general terms and gradually move to soccer specific fitness skills that include strength and speed. It will also include technical drills. It will be a five week mini-camp. There will be a small cost associated with the camp. 

Fourth, all prospective athletes MUST register online at registermyathlete [instructions that detail that are here]. Because this is new to everyone in the state, I'm advising everyone do this AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. You should do it now, so you don't have to deal with it later. And if you're new to the high school or the district or the state of Utah, getting this started now is a pretty big deal.

Fifth, as always...if you have any questions, please feel to email me or stop by my room (D118).

REMEMBER: YOU CANNOT TRY OUT UNLESS YOU REGISTER ONLINE FIRST

Get it?
