About Boys Soccer 
Madison West High School fields five Boy's Soccer teams: two freshman-only teams, two Junior-Varsity teams (Blue and Gold), and one Varsity team. Four of the five teams are supported financially by the MMSD, and the JV Gold team is supported fully by supporters of the program (Friends of West Soccer). All five teams compete in the Big Eight conference. Open tryouts begin in mid-August (per WIAA rules) and the season runs from late August through October. Varsity home games are played at James Mansfield Stadium at Madison Memorial High School.

Attendance at tryouts is mandatory in order to be selected to a team 
* To participate you must have all of your cards/online forms cleared through Athletic office prior to tryouts, no exceptions, do not bring cards to tryouts, coaches cannot accept these and you will be directed back to the Athletic office. Get this done as early as possible so you can confirm well before Tryouts that you have all required items turned in. 

* No Freshman will begin the week at JV tryouts. JV tryouts are for Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors not interested in Varsity

* Rosters will be finalized and posted on the West Athletics website on Friday 8/23


What to bring 
* Cleats and shin guards 
* Water - bring a lot, there will not be a water source at the fields 
* A 2x2 inch head-shot picture of yourself, coaches will be creating a player card for everyone. Please bring this to the first day. 


Varsity Tryouts 
* You must register for varsity tryouts at West’s main entrance on Sunday 8/18 between 5-6pm. Bring a 2x2 inch picture of yourself.
* Any player seriously committed to playing varsity may begin the week at varsity tryouts 
* Coaches will make determinations throughout the week if a player will continue with varsity tryouts or be sent to tryout with the JV or Freshman groups.
* Varsity tryouts will include mandatory morning fitness testing on Monday 8/19 and Tuesday 8/20, running shoes are required 

     

    If you are not registered Sunday evening, you will be sent home from conditioning before it begins as we will not have time to register players at West.

     

    Make sure you have the all clear for the athletic department. This will include a physical form or alternate year form, as well as other paper work. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TRYOUT UNTIL YOU HAVE THE ALL CLEAR AND YOUR NAME APPEARS ON THE COACH'S LIST. If you do not have this done by Friday, August 16th, chances are you will miss the first day of tryouts as they are held in the AM, and the Athletic Office will not be open in time. This will be no ones fault other than your own.




    All teams - Varsity, JV Blue & Gold, Freshmen Blue & Gold - will have daily practices and matches during the weeks between tryouts and the start of the school year. All players are expected to attend during this period.

    Regular practices for all five (5) teams will be held M-F from 4-6pm.

    WEST BOYS SOCCER HISTORY

    Madison West has a long and successful history in Boy's soccer. Madison West has appeared in 11 State tournaments and has won three, including back-to-back titles in 1987 and 1988, and has been runner-up twice, in 1986 and 1990. In 2007, Madison West won the All-City title and shared the Big-8 title with Middleton and Madison Memorial. In 2008 and 2009, West won the Big-8 title outright, and advanced to the State tournament in 2008 and 2017.



    2017 STATE TOURNAMENT SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD - A Madison West First!
    The MADISON WEST MEN'S VARSITY SOCCER TEAM had an amazing run through the 2017 playoffs - beating Janesville Craig, Oconomowoc, Sun Prairie and Middleton to earn a spot in the WIAA Division 1 State Tournament. In the State Semi-final match in Milwaukee, the team lost in overtime to eventual Division 1 champion, Marquette. Although the team lost in the semi-finals, they succeeded where no other Madison West team (in any sport) had before when the Men's Soccer Team was awarded the Fall State Tournament Sportsmanship Award - first ever for a Madison West team!!!!



    In Memory of West Soccer Coach Chris Vasquez
    West Boys' Soccer Coach Chris Vasquez died on February 2, 2014 after suffering a stroke. Coach Vazquez was the soccer coach at West for 21 years and also taught Spanish at the high school. During his coaching career he amassed a record of 352 wins, 112 losses and 56 ties. Chris's teams won 8 conference championships and qualified for the WIAA State Soccer Tournament 5 times, including an appearance in the 2013 State final. His record was an unsurpassed standard in West's 84 year history.

    Chris was a devoted and loving family man, a great teacher and mentor to thousands of young students and a highly respected soccer coach. He will be missed by the entire West High School community.
