7th and 8th Grade Boys Soccer tryouts will begin on the second day of school, Tuesday, August 30st, from 2:40-4:45pm at the lower 'pit' field below the tennis courts, adjacent to the varsity softball field. Tryouts will last for four days (Tuesday 8/30 - Fri. 9/2). There is no school on Monday, September 5th. Practice will resume for those that make the final roster starting on Tuesday, September 6th. A full schedule for the season will be distributed at that time via a Team Snap account.
All parents are strongly encouraged to attend the MS Boys Soccer Parent Meeting on Tuesday, August 30st @ 4:40pm on the Softball Field bleachers (next to our practice location).
