Tryouts begin Monday, August 15. Students should meet out at Falcon Field by the Poolhouse by 7:45am.
These are not optional. If you want to be on the team, either JV or Varsity, you will be at tryouts. You will not be permitted to show up when school starts and join the program. Please contact me as soon as possible if you have a conflict.
In order to participate in tryouts all students MUST:
- have a completed physical dated after June 1, 2016. Please see the Handouts tab or the Pennsbury website for the appropriate paperwork.
- attend a MANDATORY Head Injury Presentation If you missed the previous opportunities to attend this meeting you must schedule a time to watch this presentation during the week of tryouts.
If any of these items are not completed you will not be able to try out for the team.
Additionally, players should bring the following items to every session of tryouts:
- soccer cleats
- running shoes
- shin guards
- personal equipment (tape, pre wrap, etc.)
Monday, August 15 7:45am-10am, 3pm-5pm
Tuesday, August 16 8am-11am
Wednesday, August 17 8am-10am, 3pm-5pm
Thursday, August 18 8am-10am
Every player will be given at least three days to tryout for the program. If numbers necessitate, there will be two rounds of cuts. More information regarding this process will be shared during the week.
All players should arrive at tryouts physically and mentally prepared. Pre-season will be a tryout session and starting the foundations of team play. It will consist of extensive running and ball work, as well as game-like situations. Pre-season should not be used as a time to get into shape for the season. Players using it for this reason will most likely get injured.
The following lists the areas and skills that the coaching staff will look for during the tryout period. Everything you do for the tryout period is being evaluated, including how hard you work when a coach is not with you.
- Physical Aspects
- Ball Skills
- Offensive Tactics
- Defensive Tactics
- Coachability & Mental Toughness
Further explanation on these areas as well as exercises to meet the appropriate fitness goals are detailed in the summer packet that was distributed to parents and players in May. Please email Coach Battiste if you are looking for a copy of this fitness packet.
