Preseason Information 

Captains practices will begin August 5th and run Monday through Friday.

Time and Place are TBD.


Tryouts will begin August 12th and will run Monday through Friday.

All tryouts will be at South High on the statium field or practice field.

Tryouts will be in the morning, the exact time is not quite set.

We are hoping to do a seperate tryout for 9th and 10th graders and another for upperclassmen to make sure we get an adequate and fair look at each player.

All athletic forms should be completed and turned into the athletic office at South BEFORE tryouts. Forms are available here.


The full Varsity and JV schedules are set, as soon as lowerclassmen schedules are set, all will be released.

Please assume that soccer is a Monday through Saturday commitment from inception until early October at the earliest. A successful season will continue long after into State.
