2019 Fall Tryout Information

The objective of the Roseville Area High School girls soccer program is to provide an opportunity for its participants to create and nurture positive and meaningful relationships and experiences, foster humble, hardworking, respectful, committed, sporting, and empowered young women, develop and refine individual technical and tactical skill, and to compete with all other girls soccer programs in the state while continuing, advancing, and creating the Legacy of Roseville Girls Soccer.

MANDATORY PROGRAM MEETING: Our mandatory program meeting will be held on Thursday, August 8 in the RAHS Media Center from 7-8:30 pm. This meeting is required for all players interested in playing soccer during the upcoming season.

8th GRADERS ON HIGH SCHOOL TEAMS: 8th graders interested in trying out for a high school team [Varsity or JV] are required to participate in the Futures Camp [July 22-25]. After the camp the coaching staff will determine if a high school tryout is appropriate and an invitation could be extended at that time.

PROGRAM TRAINING UNIFORMS: All high school soccer players will be REQUIRED to purchase and wear a program training uniform for all tryouts, training sessions, and scrimmages. Training uniforms can be purchased at the Returners program training camp or the mandatory program meeting. Program shirts are $10 and program shorts at $20.

PROGRAM FUNDRAISING: All program players will be selling our own local business discount cards to provide funding for our program. C-Squad players are required to sell 10 cards, while JV and Varsity players are required to sell 15 cards). Cards will be handed out and the process will be discussed at the program meeting.

PROGRAM CUTS & ROSTERS: Team designation & program cuts are always an emotional time for program participants. The RGS program designates teams by talent and not by age, grade or past designation. Our hope is to roster 18-20 players per team. To ensure we continue to develop competitive teams throughout our program, the Roseville Girls Soccer team will field 3 teams; Varsity, JV, and a C-Squad. Although our hope is have a spot for every girl who attends tryouts, it is likely that we will have program cuts that could come from all grades. This means not all seniors will make the varsity team and players could end up on a team below where they played last season.

VARSITY & JV DULUTH OVERNIGHT & SCRIMMAGES: The Varsity and JV teams will travel to Duluth to participate in the Duluth East Jamboree on Saturday, August 17. The teams will leave on Friday, August 17 and stay overnight in Duluth. The cost is $75 per player [The program will cover the remaining cost]. This fee covers the cost of the bus, hotel, scrimmage fee, and breakfast on Saturday. Specific details will be available after teams are made. This trip is required for all Varsity and JV players so please mark calendar now.

BE FIT: To minimize injuries and stress on your body, please arrive to tryouts in shape. Also, rest and treat summer injuries well in advance of tryouts. We would rather use our training time to train and not develop fitness.

AUGUST PRESEASON TRAININGS: Dates and times for Senior led August Preseason Trainings will be announced in July via website and program calendar. These trainings will take place at RAHS, and are optional.
