A Message from Coach Barry

Hi All,
Thank you to everyone who gave up their time to attend the meetings on Friday, April 21st. We had a great turn out of 73 kids – both return players and incoming Freshman. Hopefully, you found the meeting informative and now understand what you will have to do to prepare for tryouts.

TRYOUT REGISTRATION

Tryout Registration is now open for the Staples Girls Soccer program for 2017. The summer is coming fast and I recommend that every single player takes their training seriously in order to give yourselves every opportunity of making the team you set out to make.

Please register for tryouts on the Staples High School website now. Be sure to provide all contact information – emails, mobile numbers, etc for player and parents.
If you are an incoming Freshman and you want to receive a high school tour with the girls soccer program during the preseason camp week, please email me your name and your contact details. Taking the tour with our seniors will ensure that you do not miss out on any soccer preseason or tryouts and you will receive the full tour.

Parents should also join the Parent Facebook Group – see links on the Staples Girls Soccer website home page, and also subscribe to THIS website.

PRE-SEASON CAMP

The pre-season camp will be organized and run by Global Premier Soccer. They are the official North American Partners of Bayern Munich and have run some of the best High School preparation camps. Camp will be held at the Wakeman fields and will run from 9am – 12pm from Monday, August 14th to Friday, August 18th. Registration details can be found here at Staples High School Preseason Camp.

SUMMER TRAINING

For Summer training please ensure that you register with G. For Body Blast registration contact G at bodyblastg@gmail.com or visit www.bodyblasted.com.

In the coming days keep an eye out for the tryout session plans so you know exactly what to expect during tryouts.

Message from Coach Barry

Hi All,

I hope everyone had a nice winter and are enjoying the spring so far. Summer comes fast so I wanted to take this chance to get as much information out to you guys as needed.

PLAYER MEETING 

This Friday 21st April at 2.15 all players aiming to return to Staples soccer in the fall should attend the information meeting at the health rooms in the athletic department with the Girls soccer coaches.

Any incoming freshman/current 8th grader should come to the meeting at 3pm. There they can meet the coaches, discover tryout and preseason information and have the chance to speak to the varsity captains regarding summer preparation and other things regarding starting high school.

PRE SEASON CAMP

This years pre season camp will be organized and run by Global Premier Soccer. They are the official North American Partners of Bayern Munich and have run some of the best High School preparation camps. Camp will be held at wakeman fields and will run from 9am – 12pm from Monday 14th August to Friday 18th August. Registration details can be found here at Staples High School Preseason Camp.

TRY OUT & FITNESS TESTING DATES

Fitness testing dates are Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd August. Each day will hold one fitness test. This year we will be selecting two of three tests to use for these tryout days.

  • Man United test
  • 300 yard shuttles
  • 1.5 mile run
More details will come during the meetings on friday 21st april on how to practice for these tests and what the tests will exactly entail.
Tryouts will then begin on the Thursday 24th August to Sunday 27th August and that will be the technical sessions and in game tryouts. Each day will have double sessions. Each session will run from 10am -12pm & 5pm – 7pm.
In the past we have not needed to use the Sunday session as 6 two hour practices have been enough but all players should prepare themselves to go all four days. Understanding that tryouts for anything can be terribly nerve wrecking for any participant so we aim to make this as easy as possible leading up to it. There will be no surprises in this, every player will receive a layout of the tryouts and what the sessions consist of.
If anyone requires any further information from me please do not hesitate to ask
