Boys Soccer Information Summer 2018

Posted on: March 7, 2018

Your fourth quarter grades will determine if you are eligible to play this fall.

 

  • You must have an Emergency Medical Authorization form filled out before you may participate in anything. This is to be filled out through Final Forms. If you are incoming from the junior high, then you probably do not need to do anything. I will download and print these off. So, you only need to make sure it is updated. If you are new to the district, then you will have to be instructed by someone in the district how to begin this process.

 

  • 8thgraders may join the high school boys after spring break at the high school. The workouts will be on Monday and Wednesday and start by 3pm and end no later than 4pm.

 

  • This summer, we will have weight room, conditioning and free play from 8:30am-11:00am on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday during June and July starting June 4. The boys should bring a ball, water, soccer shoes, running shoes and proper soccer attire. If they have a Milford soccer t-shirt, then they should wear it. The weight room is located next to the cafeteria at the high school and our free play will be located between the 9th grade center and Charity Lucas Soccer Stadium.
  • The boys should wear black shorts every day, a white t-shirt on Monday, a red t-shirt on Wednesday and Gray t-shirt on Thursday.

 

  • Our goal for the summer is to increase our fitness level, develop our skills, bond with teammates and learn from the coaches. Specifically, players should decrease their 2 mile time (varsity players should be around 12 minutes), decrease their 40 meter sprint time, increase their juggling (over 100) and increase their overall body strength.

 

  • This summer we will do two tournaments that are one day each. The dates for the two tournaments are July 7 and July 21. We will have 2 or 3 teams for each tournament based upon the number of boys interested in playing. There will be a cost associated with the tournaments, but I cannot tell you now what that cost will be. During the first week in June, I will ask who will be able to participate in each. If you will not be available the first week in June, then you will need to let me know by email.

 

  • We will have tryouts August 1-2. Tryouts are mandatory to make the program. To tryout, an athlete must have an OHSAA physical. A physical is offered on the Milford campus in May for a fee. Exact date to be determined later.

 

  • We will have 3 – 4 scrimmages once tryouts are complete. The dates for those scrimmages are August 3 (morning), August 6 (afternoon/evening), August 9 (evening) and August 13 (evening). The dates and times for your son will depend upon which team he is playing for at that moment.

 

  • Our first regular season game is August 17 for varsity and JVA at Little Miami and for JVB it is August 18 vs. Springboro.

 

  • We have three teams and will keep 48-54 players. The three teams are Varsity, JV-A and JV-B. All players will work out together during spring and summer months and we usually workout together once per week during the fall season.
