Girls Pre-Season Events: Speed Training | Fitness | Tryouts

posted Nov 19, 2019, 7:20 AM by Paul Anderson

From Coach:

Speed Training:

These sessions are Monday thru Thursday.  Times are either from 2:35 - 3:15 or 3:20 - 4:00.  These aren't mandatory but highly recommended especially with our fitness sessions to start in early January.  Also a good way to get a step up on your fitness.

Fitness Sessions:

Begin Tuesday, January 7th.  Times will be 5:00 - 6:30.  We have moved the sessions around this year to accommodate all the club soccer practices so each player should be able to attend.  These sessions will be held at the Tartoni Center weight room and track.  The dates are listed below:

 JANUARY                        FEBRUARY                 MARCH
Tuesday 7th                      Tuesday 4th             Monday 2nd
Thursday 9th                     Thursday 6th           Thursday 5th
Monday 13th                     Monday 10th
Wednesday 15th               Wednesday 12th
Tuesday 21st                     Tuesday 18th
Wednesday 29th               Wednesday 19th
Thursday 30th                   Monday 24th
                                          Thursday 27th
I also have the Turf field at the West Campus, so we may split time between the 2 sites on certain nights.  I'll let everyone know when we do that.

Tryouts:

Tryouts will be held starting March 9th.  These will be held in the Tartoni Center gymnasium from 5:00 - 8:30.  They will last through Thursday March 12th.  Times for each session will be posted later.  I have also reserved the new Mundy Sports Plex for Tuesday and Wednesday of tryout week from 2:45 - 4:00, so some of you may be asked to participate over there as well.
Everyone must have a physical on file in the athletic office to tryout.  If you have participated in another sport this school year, your physical will already be on file.  If not, please get this done before March 9th if you are planning on trying out.

Field Cleanup | Booster Meeting | Volunteering | Uniforms

Field Cleanup:
Each year we spend some time sprucing up the fields for the start of the season. We are doing the cleanup this Monday (8/26) at 5:30pm. The hope is we can get as many people (kids and players are welcome as well) as possible at the fields and get it nice and cleaned up fast. We will be doing stuff like raking, pulling weeds, trimming bushes, sweeping (cement, walls etc..)  inspecting bleacher area for wasps nests and anything else that makes sense. Please bring brooms, rakes, trimming tools etc. Please respond to this email if you plan to help and what you can bring so I can get an idea of how many people we may have.   

Booster Meeting:
We will be having our next booster meeting on Tuesday (8/27) at 6:30pm in the backroom at Sweetwater Grill. 

Volunteering:
Each year we struggle with getting volunteers. As we need volunteers for upcoming events I will send out an email and add information to the website. Right now we are in need of volunteers to work concessions and Ball Boys/Ball Girls. Please click these links and sign-up to volunteer if you are able. Links: Concessions | Ball Boy/Ball Girl   

Uniforms Shorts & Socks:
We have been in contact with Soccer World and the shorts and socks are not in yet. We expect them next week and plan to get each teams and deliver to each teams coach or team captain.
