What will tryouts consist of? You will play small/large sided games in which your soccer knowledge, understanding, and tactics are tested and judged.

You will also be tested in 10 different areas:

Athletes are NOT required to earn specific scores to make any team.

  1. 40 yard dash    (Expected times 4.5-5.5)
  2. Beep Test (research online: Expected Score: 10)
  3. 2 Mile run (Expected times: 15 minutes)
  4. Standing Broad jump (Expected jump: 6-10 feet)
  5. Shooting (shooting at 10 targets in 60 seconds)
  6. Passing (10 passes at 10 targets in 60 seconds)
  7. Juggling (Expected score: over 100 in three combined attempts)
  8. Dribbling (Expected time: Under 25 seconds)
  9. Push-ups (Expected score: Over 50 in two minutes)
  10. Sit-ups (Expected score: Over 65 in two minutes)

Athletes are NOT required to earn specific scores to make any team.

These numbers allow us to compare/contrast between athletes, but more importantly to show improvements from one year to the next.

T-Shirts/Socks: For those JV players and returning varsity players that need practice T-shirts ($10 each, $40 for all four), it is my understanding that we will have someone available Saturday at the team lunch, to buy the shirts from.

Socks will be either $13 or $14.
