Preseason Training

Open Gyms: Open Gyms will begin on Tuesday, December 4th, 2019. Each session will run 6:00-7:30 AM in the Stevens Gym. These preseason sessions are organized and run by the returning Seniors on the Varsity team. Open Gyms are optional and open to anyone in the program. Players do not have to sign-up or check-in for any sessions. Typical sessions consist of conditioning, on the ball drills, and open play.

Preseason Program Meeting: There will be a preseason program meeting for all players and parents/guardians at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, February 12th, 2019 in the West High School Auditorium. The purpose of this meeting is to provide more information about the season at all levels, as well as answer any questions that players and/or parents/guardians might have for the season. This is not a mandatory meeting, but we hope that families will take advantage of the opportunity to get more information.

Season Starts March 18th

The season begins for all players on Monday, March 18th, 2019. There will be a week of tryouts for all players and then rosters will be set on Friday, March 22nd in the evening. The first official day of practice for JV and Freshmen teams will be Monday, April 1st due to the timing of Spring Break.

Spring Break: Spring Break runs March 23rd through March 31st, 2019. During that week, the JV and Freshmen teams will NOT have any required training sessions. The coaching staff will offer optional training for any players that are in Madison for the break week. The Varsity team will have mandatory training during Spring Break, therefore all Varsity players are expected to be in Madison for Spring Break. Please plan accordingly if you believe you could make the Varsity Roster.

Practices
Each team in the soccer program practices every week day during the season except on match days. Practices are held after school at a series of fields located on the near west side of Madison. Transportation is NOT provided to off-campus practices, and it is the responsibility of players to get themselves to their daily training sessions.

Each coach will set his/her own specific start and end times for each practice, but they are typically held between 4:15 and 6:15 PM on weekdays. Players are expected to attend every practice as part of their commitment to the team and the program. If a player has a recurring conflict with daily practices, she will need to discuss this with her coach.
