Fall 2017 tryouts, game schedules, free sports physicals

The 2017 fall season is almost here! Here’s what’s coming up:

 

FALL SPORTS REGISTRATION

Sign up to play soccer at North starting this week! Be on top of it and don’t let tryouts sneak up on you without being registered. While it’s possible to join late, you don’t want to miss anything.

In order to play any high school sport, student-athletes need to fill out and submit the high school athletic packet to the office, including an up-to-date sports physical. You may also pick up the needed forms in the school’s main office (503-399-3241).

 

TRYOUT PREPARATION / TEAM CAMP

We’re changing things up with our pre-tryout week this year! Instead of charging for a team camp, we will be having tryout preparation practice sessions – August 7-10, 5:00-7:00 PM at Barrick Field.

These sessions will entail building fitness and improving technical skills, but still retain parts of the team camp – namely fun and games! All players participating in the fall season should do their best to be at these sessions. This is a great opportunity to get in some important field time before the real deal arrives with tryouts. Don’t miss out!

 

TRYOUTS

Lady Vikings Soccer tryouts run Monday through Friday, August 14th through 18th. All sessions are at Barrick Field. Full schedule:

Monday, Aug 14: 5:00-7:00pm
Tuesday, Aug 15: 10:00-11:15am & 5:15-7:00pm
Wednesday, Aug 16: 5:00-7:00 PM
Thursday, Aug 17: 10:00-11:15am & 5:15-7:00pm
Friday, Aug 18: 5:00-7:00 PM

Attendance at all tryout sessions is mandatory for all players in order to be placed in a team and eligible to play in games. If a session must be missed, players may communicate with coaches to arrange make-up practices or workouts.
