1. Join us at The FCIAC Summer League – Summer league is a great way for the girls to get to know each other on and off the field. The games are on a Monday night throughout the summer. The Captains coach it and every player will get equal game time no matter what grade or playing level. This is a fun and enjoyable way to get your foot on the ball through the summer. The league will run over 8 weeks starting in late June with each team having a bye week. Games will be held in Trumbull, CT. All CTHSSL games will have professional referees and trainers in attendance at every game.
2. Body Blast Conditioning Program – Body Blast is a conditioning program that aids the players in getting ready for the season ahead. It will have two days on the field practicing for the fitness tests and one day in the weight room. The on-field focus will cover general fitness work, ball work & fitness test prep. It will cover the 300s and the Man U test that we test at try outs. Weight Room focus will be overall strength training for lower body and upper body, muscle endurance, and injury prevention. **If there are any previous injuries or current injuries when training in the summer, please have parents/guardians reach out.

4. Staples Girls Soccer Try outs – Try outs will be held at Wakeman Turf Field on the week of August 21st through August 27th. All Players trying out must register on the Staples High School Athletic page once Fall registration opens (please complete contact information for BOTH guardians). Once all of the appropriate paperwork is complete you will be in the database and cleared by the School. If not cleared by the school, you will not be able to try out so, please do not leave this to the last minute. I cannot help you in this case.
