SRCS 2018 Boys Soccer Tryouts

Boys Soccer Tryouts will be held August 23rd & August 24th, from 3:30-5:00 on the SRCS soccer field.  SRCS boys soccer team will be lead by Coach Joe Higley.  Coach Higley has coached soccer at the middle school level since 2012 and we are very excited to have him lead our team this year.

Tryouts are open to all Middle School Boys, grades 6th-8th, with an up to date physical.  We anticipate a strong turnout from our middle school boys.  For this reason there is a very real possibility that middle schoolers who tryout will not make the 2018 Boys soccer team.  This is, unfortunately, is the nature of competitive athletics.  Our coaching staff has an established criteria what will be used to evaluate and assess those who tryout.  Players must also have a positive attitude and have respect for coaches, players, and parents throughout the tryout process.  Coach Higley expects players to do their best and display good sportsmanship at all times.  

There will be time to eat before the tryouts begin, so please have your student pack a snack for both days of tryouts.

- Appropriate soccer attire; soccer shorts, short sleeve t-shirt and soccer socks. PE uniform is acceptable
