Hi All,

We have decided as coaches to go with two fitness tests this coming season and not 3. We will be using the Man United test & the 300 Yard Shuttles. We have used these tests in previous years and feel they are an excellent gauge of players fitness levels & pre-tryout preparation. Attached is a booklet created by Mackenzie Pretty (Staples Girls Soccer Varsity Asst. Coach) that explains exactly how the tests will be run and how you should prepare. It is less than 10 weeks away from the tryouts already and, believe me, it will come very fast. Please download the booklet (see below attachment) to whichever device you prefer and give yourself the best opportunity for the tryouts.

Important Registration Details:

Preseason Camp – Staples Girls Preseason Camp
Tryout registration – Staples Girls Soccer Tryouts

I will release the Tryout session plans soon so that every player is aware of what will happen each step of the tryouts. This will allow you to fully prepare.

Fitness Tests and Summer Training Prep

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 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.


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.


For Summer training please ensure that you register with G. For Body Blast registration contact G at or visit

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