As you all know, we will be conducting tryouts next week for any player who was in the program this past season and is interested in remaining in the program for the 2018-2019 season. I sent an email on April 7th outlining the skills and fitness all players would be evaluated on. The coaches' hope is that all players have been taking time to workout, not only during their 6th period class (if still enrolled), but outside of class as well, to prepare.
As a reminder, next week's tryout is simply for a spot in the program, not placement on a specific team. No player who earns a spot after next week's tryouts will be dropped from the class, regardless of fitness or skill level, when school resumes in August. One of the goals for next week's tryouts is to provide administration with the most accurate head count for scheduling purposes.
To ensure that all players have time to be evaluated, we have asked that they plan on staying until 4pm every day next week. For those in track, I have contacted Coach Fisher and she is allowing the track players to come to soccer during 6th period. For any player not able to come during 6th, for whatever reason, will need to come right after school and stay until 4:30 next week. Player who are unable to complete the testing next week will need to attend the tryouts on June 19th, 20th, and 21st from 2-4pm on Samo's turf field. Any prospective player who is unable to complete the tryout next week or in June, will be dropped from the class.
*Here is the testing schedule for next week:
- MON: Mile
- TUES: Juggling and scrimmage
- WED: Beep test and Free kicks, and 1v1s
- THURS: Dribbling and passing
- FRI: 120s and scrimmage
Please refer to the email sent or link: http://samohisoccer.com/index-girls.html for the detailed description of all tests. All players will be notified by Monday, May 28th of their status and next steps.
*Schedule is subject to change based on field availability.
Have a wonderful weekend!
