“You don’t always get out what you put in but you never get out more than you put in.”
MANDATORY PROGRAM MEETING: Our mandatory program meeting will be held on Thursday, August 13 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. At this meeting training uniforms may be purchased, program guidelines and philosophy will be discussed, and questions will be answered about fundraising, Booster Club, spirit wear, the program, and tryouts.
MANDATORY TRY-OUTS FOR PLAYERS 9-12: ALL players are expected to attend ALL try-outs starting on Monday, August 17. Please have all paperwork complete (school and program), water bottle filled, and equipment on [including training uniform] prior to the start of the first tryout session. All dates and times are posted on the program calendar.
TO PARTICIPATE IN TRY-OUTS: All players must register for soccer on the Roseville Area High School Athletic Department website. Contact the activities office (email@example.com] for more information. No player will be allowed to participate in soccer until school registration is done!
All players must also complete the electronic Roseville Girls Soccer Player Information Form online. The link for this form is below. This form includes pertinent player and family contact information.
HIGH SCHOOL CAMP: Roseville Girls Soccer will hold a high school mini-camp for all incoming 9-12 graders, August 3-6th from 10:00-Noon at RAHS. During camp we will preview training activities [both technical and tactical] and systems to be used during the season. The cost of the mini-camp is $50 and registration can be done by clicking on the link below. All girls planning on playing in 2020 are strongly encouraged to attend.
All Returners Camp participants are required to wear the program training uniform. New players should show up early to purchase the training uniform the first day of high school camp [$10/shirt, $20/shorts].
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 High School Mini-Camp. 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 or soliciting Go-Fundme donations to provide funding for our program. 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 to 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.
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.
CAPTAIN’S PRACTICES: Roseville Girls Soccer does not have captains’ practices. Spend this time before the high school season resting, relaxing, vacationing, and spending time with family and friends.
