A: If you are playing a THS fall sport you must finish your season of sport before participating in any soccer activities. Players should make sure to let Kalis know that they plan on attending once their sport has ended. Note that players must register for each individual sport through FamilyID.
Q: What do I do if I am playing competitive soccer and the seasons overlap?
A: Players need to honor their commitment to their competitive teams while communicating scheduling conflicts with their High School team. Communication is the key. We will make every attempt to work with competitive players training and game schedule until their season has ended. Players CANNOT play games for high school until they have played their last competitive game. In the spring, players cannot play in competitive games until the high school season games have finished. Training for both competitve and high school teams during the high school season is allowed but not recommended.
Q: How long will tryouts last?
A: The length of tryouts will depend on the number of players trying out and usually lasts about 5 days which typically include 2 rounds of cuts.
Q: How many players make the team?
A: Typically around 18 or 19, but anywhere from 16-23.
Q: Can I play another winter sport at Tracy High School at the same time as soccer?
Q: If I don't make the team, can I still try out for another winter sport?
A: Communicate this concern to your coaches before tryouts. Typically this has not been a problem in the past and all sports have worked together to give potential players a spot in multiple sports.
Q: What formation do we play?
A: We do not play just one formation. Players are expected to understand US Soccer's numbering system by position and their accompanying roles.
