Practice moved inside for Tuesday 8/21/18

Because of poor air quality we are unable to practice outside today – instead we will be practicing in the main building. Players should meet at 5:00 in the hallway next to the small gyms, and bring soccer shoes appropriate for indoor play (or trainers/running/tennis shoes).

2018 Team Camp and Fall Season Tryouts

Hello Lady Vikings Soccer family,

The 2018 fall season is right around the corner! First up is Team Camp this week and the schedule is as follows:

Monday 8/6: 5:00-7:00pm
Tuesday 8/7: 5:00-7:00pm
Wednesday 8/8: 5:00-7:00pm
Thursday 8/9: 5:00-7:00pm

All team camp sessions are at Barrick Field. Camp is free to attend this year and not required, but strongly encouraged so players can practice their skills and build fitness heading into tryouts.

Speaking of TRYOUTS, those are coming up just next week! Here’s this year’s tryout schedule:

Monday 8/13: 5:00-7:00pm
Tuesday 8/14: 10:00-11:15am & 5:15-7:00pm
Wednesday 8/15: 5:00-7:00pm
Thursday 8/16: 10:00-11:15am & 5:15-7:00pm
Friday 8/17: 5:00-7:00pm

All tryout sessions are at Barrick Field and attendance is mandatory! Players missing any tryout sessions must communicate with coaches and agree to complete make-up work in order to be placed with a team. Please note that Tuesday and Thursday are double days, meaning there are two mandatory tryout sessions on each of those days.

So, what do you need for tryouts? Players must have an up-to-date sports physical (here/español) that are good for two years, and completed high school athletic packet which includes an athletic agreement (here/español), athletic participation form (here/español), and concussion risk acknowledgement (here/español) and turn all forms into the North Salem High School main office along with the athletics fee. Players must bring proof they’re eligible to play to the first session, and should wear shin guards and a white t-shirt.

More info will follow soon about further practices and the fall game schedule – for now, let’s focus on getting everyone out on the field and playing these next two weeks.

If you have any questions contact a coach and we’ll help you out.

Let’s have a great year and GO VIKS!

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.

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!
