Welcome to Varsity Boys Soccer

  • Dear Player and Parents:

    Welcome to the 2018 Boys Soccer season.  You are part of a tradition rich program fresh off a second consecutive state tournament berth!  Playing the sport of soccer will allow you to be part of a team sport in which hard work over the course of the season can allow you success both as a team and individually.

    I am excited about my second season as head coach of Tiger Soccer.  You will be asked to make sacrifices and give all you can to our program.  This means you will practice hard and encourage others to do the same.  Hard work translates into success on the field. 

    As coaches we will work hard every day to make you better.  We will train the game and prepare you to compete at an premier level every day.

    Before practicing athletes must have on file:

    1. Physical Exam card or alternate year card
    2. Emergency card/parental permission
    3. Signed athletic code card
    4. Athletic fees paid
    5. All uniforms and equipment turned in from previous sports season

    No excuses for not having your information turned in on time.  This is your responsibility to have taken care of BEFORE the beginning of tryouts on August 13.

    It is very important that you bring the following to each and every training session: running shoes, cleats, water, shin guards and be in your practice gear. Tardiness will not be accepted.  No excuses!

    We will continue the tradition of beginning try outs with a 1.75 mile run to be completed in 12 minutes or less and no french fries or soda once the season begins.  This will be the 14th year of this soccer tradition.  Discipline, combined with health and fitness, have always set our program apart from our competition. 

    We will continue the strong tradition that has become New Richmond Tiger Soccer.  Expectations will be high! 

    I am looking forward to working with everyone and getting the season underway.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
