A fitness assessment at the track will be on Sunday, August 16 @ 4 pm.
Players should expect to be evaluated in the technical & tactical aspects of soccer along with their attitude and fitness (endurance, strength & speed). The ability to make good decisions with and without the ball, work with others, and be attentive to instructions are all critical elements. (Skill evaluation, small-sided games and full-field games will also be a part of the evaluation process.) The right attitude is critical to making the team. Players will also be evaluated on basic skills such as dribbling, passing, receiving, finishing, defending, movement without the ball and the speed in which these are executed, that we refer to as speed of play. Another aspect of evaluation is a players’ athletic awareness, for example field vision and decision making during game play. Players should work on increasing their physical fitness in and out of the weight room. This will help candidates in the tryout process. A players’ physical condition coming into the season may be used as a determining factor in making the team as well as intangible skills like work ethic and team work. Attitude and Character will play into decision making by the coaches.
Once teams are chosen a fluid roster may be in process throughout the year.
Physicals are required to participate in all athletic try-outs. Due to issues associated with COVID-19 a decision has not yet been made about physicals given at the high school. No one can tryout until paperwork has been handed in (on the day of tryouts).
