Tryout Information

7th and 8th Grade Boys Soccer tryouts will begin on the second day of school, Tuesday, August 30th, from 2:40-4:45 pm 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.
