Dear athletes,

Thank you for trying out for the 2018 LaSalle Boys Soccer team. We appreciate your enthusiasm, dedication, and hard work. We hope that everyone who is invited to join our team decides to play this season. Our first practice is scheduled for Wednesday, September 24th. This training session is mandatory for all participating athletes.

We will meet in Room 202 for orientation, pass out uniforms, and go to our playground for a brief training session. The league schedule and practice dates will be posted on our website, once the information becomes available.

For all subsequent practices, athletes should report to Room 202 by 4:05 PM. After attendance, we will jog over to Lincoln Park for our training session. It is important that students come to practices dressed appropriately ready to run and train because they will not have an opportunity to change. Since practices and games are generally not cancelled for cold weather and rain, it is important that athletes come prepared for inclement weather. In addition to gear, students should bring water and a soccer ball if the athlete owns one. We also kindly request parents to promptly pick up their child at 5:45 PM on our playground. Athletes will be dismissed through the playground doors near Orleans.

We are looking forward to a great season.


7th-8th Coach: Y. Anthony Choi ychoi@cps.edu
