Every year our start up activities are similar so this note is left active so potential players can see what to expect. Go Cougars!
A note from the coach:
I hope this email finds you well and raring to fire into the fall soccer season!
The next few weeks will start getting busy for you all, so I just want to remind you about some of the things we have scheduled.
Final Saturday Kick Around - EHS from 10am-12 noon on Saturday Aug 6. It’s been great to meet some of our incoming freshmen at these kick arounds, and I hope we can make this last one a big one.
Pre-Season Camp - This will be a week long, intensive opportunity to get up to speed with the ability level, speed of play, technical expectations and tactical requirements ahead of tryouts. It is also a chance to be seen by the coaches who will be making the player placement decisions at tryouts. The camp will run from 9am-12 noon from Monday August 8 - Friday August 12 on the EHS turf field. All details including costs are on the attached 2016 EHS Boys Camp Flier. You need to register in advance to participate.
Tryouts - will be held from 1pm-3pm on the EHS grass field Mon 15, Tues 16 and Wed 17 August. Players are expected to attend all 3 days. Athletic paperwork (including annual sports physical) must be completed and turned into Mrs. Warren by 9am on Mon 15 August. NO EXCEPTIONS! In addition to a large returning squad, we have a large incoming freshman class so I am anticipating that competition for places will be fierce this year. This will be a truly competitive process and I do not expect that everybody participating will be offered a spot.
Program Meeting - we will hold a Player / Parent Coaches meeting from 4:00-5pm on Thursday 18 August at the school. Every player / family must be represented at this meeting as we will cover of many important items including schedule, expectations, booster activity etc.
Thanks for your involvement, and I will hopefully see you at the pitch.
