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.

Future Viks year-end BBQ & HS program updates

Hello soccer lovers! A few updates as the school year winds down:

FUTURE VIKS BBQ

This Friday (6/3) from 6:00-8:30 PM we are holding a potluck BBQ to celebrate a successful year for the Houck and Parrish middle school girls soccer programs. The event is in the North HS stadium. Anyone who participated in any or all of the fall, winter, and spring seasons is welcome to attend. Family are also welcome and encouraged to join in. Don’t forget to bring at least enough food for your group!

Volunteers from the HS program are still needed.

Fun MS program facts:
– Since November 6 2015, Parrish girls have gone 12 games undefeated (W11 D1)
This spring the Houck 6th-grade and 7th/8th-grade teams each defeated Waldo by a score of 2-1

FULL OFFSEASON PRACTICES BEGIN

With the end of the school year we welcome the return of full practice sessions, with the first being this Saturday (6/4), 7:00-8:30 PM in the stadium. The planned schedule for the coming weeks and months is Monday/Wednesday/Friday 7:00-8:30 in stadium, plus Saturdays 12:00-1:30 PM in stadium. This may be subject to change so be sure to check the calendar frequently and watch for news updates.

SUMMER LEAGUE MEETING AND GAMES

This Friday (6/3) at 2:30 PM we are meeting in the gym classroom to collect registration forms and discuss the practice and game schedule. The first game is scheduled for Thursday June 16th so you must get those forms turned in!

Thank you to all players, parents, and coaches for a great school year and GO VIKS!

Offseason and Summer League

OFFSEASON

Are you interested in playing soccer outside of the regular fall season? Then you’re in luck! Currently we are having offseason workouts and open field sessions on Saturdays from 5:00-6:30 PM in the NSHS stadium. Current Lady Vikings Soccer players, incoming freshmen, and students not yet involved but interested in playing are all welcome to attend.

SUMMER LEAGUE

Believe it or not, it’s time to start thinking about summer league soccer! The league is run through OSU’s 4-H program and is a good way for players to gain high school playing experience in a low-pressure setting. If you’re interested in joining, please pick up a registration form from coach Erik or download it here. It’s best to turn in forms directly to coaches, but they may also be brought to the NSHS main office.

It’s a good idea to participate in offseason work as much as possible to improve your skills and fitness before the real deal comes in the fall.

See you at the fields and GO VIKS!

Awards Night and Potluck Dinner, Offseason training

As quickly as it arrived the 2015 fall season has passed by, but that doesn’t mean Lady Vikings Soccer is done until next August! Read on to see what’s coming up:

AWARDS NIGHT AND POTLUCK

On Thursday, November 12 from 6:00-8:00 PM we are holding an awards night and potluck dinner for the entire girls soccer program. Players are strongly encouraged to invite their families to join.

All players or families attending are expected to bring something to add to the potluck dinner–snacks or appetizers, dinner items, desserts, beverages, extra plates and napkins and so on, or any number of these. Please bring at least enough for you or your group so there is more than enough food for everyone in attendance. Sign up below:

AWARDS NIGHT POTLUCK SIGN UP SHEET

If your item is locked and you want to change what you’re bringing, please contact Erik directly to get it changed.

OFFSEASON TRAINING

As part of the ongoing commitment of the Lady Vikings Soccer players and coaching staff to build a better soccer program, we’ve not had our fill of soccer this fall and are starting the offseason early! Saturday, November 12 from 3:00-5:00 PM we are holding a practice session in the North Salem High School stadium.

See you there and GO VIKS!

Varsity Jamboree, Team Weekend, and more

[UPDATED 8/23]

The Greater Valley Conference Varsity Jamboree (Friday 8/28) schedule has been announced and we will be playing against McMinnville 11:30 AM at Gilmore Field and McNary 1:30 PM at the South Salem HS stadium. Players involved must be ready to play (all gear on) 30 minutes before each game. Those not playing are strongly encouraged to attend to cheer on the team and get a preview of what varsity competition looks like.

We are having a program movie night starting 8 PM that evening that all players are invited to and encouraged to attend. We’ll be watching two movies while chowing down on snacks (that all attending are suggested to bring but will also be provided). There will also be a team event on Saturday August 29th, the details of which will be determined soon (check back for updates!).

While we have concluded our official tryout week, new players are still welcome and encouraged to sign up and join. Practices from 8/24-8/27 will be held 6:15-8:15 PM at Barrick.

All Lady Vikings Soccer players must complete the concussion impact test before they’re able to play in games. We are scheduled for Monday, August 24th at 5:15 in room 112 at North. Get it done sooner than later!

The league schedule has also been set — see the Schedules & Results pages to learn more.

Get hyped for the season and let’s have a great one. As always, GO VIKS!

Player-parent meeting scheduled for Wednesday, August 19

Hello Lady Vikings Soccer players and family!

Tryouts are upon us and soon the season will be going full steam ahead. Here is the tryout schedule:

Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 10:00-11:15 AM & 4:30-6:15 PM
Tuesday, Thursday: 10:00 AM-12:00 PM

Immediately following this Wednesday‘s afternoon tryout session, at 6:15 PM, we will be holding a player-parent meeting to discuss the upcoming season, program expectations and events, fundraising, and more. It is important that parents or guardians attend in order to meet coaches and, especially for newer players, get a feeling for what the program is all about.

Attendance to this meeting is mandatory unless a player has good reason to be absent and notifies a coach beforehand.

Team Camp and Tryouts

It’s that time already! From August 10th to 14th we will be having our team camp, 12-2 PM in the stadium. The cost is $25 which includes a t-shirt–download the registration form or stop by the school office to pick one up. Water will be provided but all players should bring MORE than they feel is necessary should we have 80-100 degree weather.

Tryouts are the following week (August 17-21), so be sure to complete the athletic packet and have an up-to-date physical before the first day. We are anticipating strong numbers and a competitive tryout, so do everything you can to prepare!

We will have two final offseason practices the week before team camp, Tuesday August 4th and Thursday the 6th, from 7:00-8:30 PM at Barrick Field (just north of Market St. between Baker and 15th streets). This is also the tryouts and fall season practice location. Please take this opportunity to shake off the rust before things get serious. Camp forms may be picked up at these practices as well.

See you at the fields, and GO VIKS!
