Thanks for your interest in Roosevelt Soccer. School sports are a great way for students to get connected at Roosevelt. Girl soccer players immediately find themselves surrounded by a group of hard charging scholar athletes who know their way around Roosevelt. The upper classmen are great about helping new students adjust to high school. Community is a great thing in a big school like Roosevelt and wearing green and gold on game day is icing on the cake.
WHERE TO FIND INFORMATION
We post information about trainings, events, forms, and a calendar, on the girls’ soccer page of the Roosevelt Athletic Booster page http://www.rooseveltathleticboosters.org. Please frequently check the blog and calendar for updates. An email list will be started late spring/early summer - send mail to the parent manager, Amy Kelsey, email@example.com to be added!
Please feel free to contact Amy with any questions you may have about the season ahead. Players are welcome to contact captains with any concerns, worries, or questions they may have about the upcoming season.
Stanley Holmes enters his ninth year as head coach of the RHS Girls Varsity Soccer Team, leading the team to a 3A State Quarterfinal finish in 2016 and 2019, Round of 16 placement in the 2017 state championships, and a state qualifying berth in 2018. The Riders’ girls soccer team has consistently placed first in its Metro Conference division and finished in the Top Four or Top Eight in Metros over the past eight years. You are encouraged to contact Coach Stanley if you have questions about the program.
SUMMER TRAINING SESSIONS
** Please see summer training schedule section at top of page-updated 6/26/2020**
At this current moment due to Covid 19 and restrictions regarding limited group gatherings, we do not have a summer training schedule. This is a very fluid situation and once we are cleared to meet, we will let everyone know.
If we are able to hold summer practices, please keep in mind that summer practices do not represent enough running or soccer to prepare for the fall season. We highly encourage players to do additional fitness outside of organized practice times. We also expect players who want to make Varsity already are playing for a club soccer team – and we strongly encourage every aspiring high school player to be playing some level of competitive club soccer. You also want to get as many touches on the ball as you can over the summer. Come to our summer trainings, play with a club team, find a pick-up game. Enjoy it and embrace it with passion!
AUGUST CAPTAIN TRAININGS
**Please see summer training schedule at top of page - updated 6-26-2020**
At this current moment due to Covid 19 and restrictions regarding limited group gatherings, we do not have a August Captain training schedule. This is a very fluid situation and once we are cleared to meet, we will let everyone know.
The more fit you are, the better prepared you are for soccer 5-6 days per week for 10-12 weeks straight in the fall. Injuries really put a cramp in this brief season. The HS soccer season is too short for student athletes to expect to "get into shape" during the season. We usually play our first game only 11 days after tryouts begin. It takes at least eight weeks to get in "game" shape. The average high school varsity soccer player can run more than 5.5 miles a game. Prospects need to come to tryouts already in game shape or they will more than likely subject themselves to injury. We want players healthy and fit so they can participate and have fun.
TRYOUTS/ TEAM FORMATION
Official tryouts are slated to start Monday, Aug. 24, 2020. We will practice twice a day, Mon-Fri for the week leading into Labor Day weekend. During the first week, we work to form our teams. The second week, the teams continue practicing together to prepare for their first games the following week. The morning fitness sessions will be held at the RHS field and the afternoon soccer sessions will be held at a Magnuson Park field. Each player must have 10 days of training to be eligible to play in their first game. We expect to field three teams for the fall 2020 season: Varsity, JV, and JVC.
ARE PLAYERS CUT?
We traditionally have more kids than there are spots available, so yes. That said, there are many spots to be filled so prospective participants shouldn’t be derailed.
IF I AM SICK OR INJURED, DO I STILL PARTICIPATE IN TRYOUTS?
Injured student athletes should still come to tryouts if they are to be considered for placement on a team. If a student athlete is too sick to come to tryouts, she MUST contact the coaching staff or team manager. In addition, all injuries need to go through our Athletic Trainer.
HOW ARE TEAMS FORMED?
Team coaches and assistant coaches evaluate each player. Each player will have ample opportunity to showcase her skills, soccer knowledge and fitness at tryouts. Specifically, the coaches look to evaluate the four components of a soccer player: (1) technical ability - speed of play, successful application of skill at a high speed and while under pressure (2) tactical awareness and application - speed of thought, ability to read the game and make decisions that are best for the team (3) physical development and conditioning - speed, quickness, strength, agility, aerobic capacity (4) psychological - maturity, competitive spirit, attentiveness, leadership, communication, mental toughness, cooperation. After teams are formed, there may be some movement in the roster each week. Spots will be earned during training prior to the game based on effort, performance, attitude and health.
All student athletes, regardless of their grade level, are eligible to make Varsity. Because a student athlete was on Varsity, JV, or JVC last year does not guarantee she will make the same team this year.
Please get your physical as soon as possible! Roosevelt athletic paperwork can now be completed digitally. To register your student-athlete and complete the athletic paperwork for the upcoming season, please follow the instructions on the RHS athletic website https://roosevelths.seattleschools.org/cms/One.aspx?portalId=7503&pageId=2830570
Get your paperwork in on time – do not procrastinate, as there are many forms and sports physical needs to be done by your physician every other year. If you are a first time athlete at Roosevelt, you will need a physical. There will be no sports fees this year but you need to purchase an ASB card ($90) and pay all outstanding fines. Registration is your responsibility! If your papers are not cleared by the athletic secretary, you cannot step on the field at tryouts. Paper work should be submitted by August 14th.
