Tryouts for the 2021 high school soccer season will be held on August 9th, 10th and 11th.
Please read everything below in order to be ready to go!

Any players who want to participate in tryouts must:

1)  complete the athletic participation survey that has been sent to the inbox of all BHS students through Infinite Campus…


2)  all athletes must have a current physical examination form on file.  More specific details are available here (LINK.)

Players need to bring their soccer items (cleats, shinguards, and a soccer ball) to every session.  For the first day, players also need to bring running shoes.  We also ask that all players bring their own water every day.  While masks are not currently required, it may be a good idea to have one with you as well.

The daily schedule for our tryouts will be:

Monday, August 9th    —   7:30-11:00am
All players will meet at the BHS Stadium at 7:30am.  We will hold a meeting to welcome and check in all players, introduce our coaching staff, and then explain the tryout process and the schedule for the week.  When those things are completed, players will then complete a 2-mile fitness run on the track.  (Varsity players are expected to complete the run in under 13 minutes.)   All players need to bring running shoes so that they can run on the track.  When the 2 mile run has been completed, players looking to make the varsity team will remain in the stadium.  Players trying out for our freshman and JV teams will walk out to the FOD soccer fields.  Tryout sessions will be held for all players until 11:00am.

Tuesday, August 10th    —   8:00-11:00am
UPDATE — Any players trying out for a the freshman, JV1 or JV2 levels — your session has been moved into the stadium and will run from 8:00-9:30am.  If you need to run the 2-mile run, you should arrive by 7:30am (unless you are on the SH bus.  For those players, we will work something out once you arrive.)   Any players trying out for varsity, that session will be from 9:30-11:30am in the stadium.  If you need to run the 2-mile run, please arrive in time to be ready to start running at 9:00am.  Thank you for your flexibility, the FOD fields are just far too wet to play on (without completely destroying them.)

Wednesday, August 11th    —   8:00-10:00am OR 10:00am-12:00pm
Due to the rain yesterday and again currently, we are adjusting the tryout schedule for Wednesday, August 11th as follows:   JV1, JV2 and Freshman tryouts will be in the stadium from 8:00-10:00am.  Varsity tryouts will be in the stadium from 10:00am-12:00pm.  We again thank you all for being able to adapt and make this work!!

Thursday, August 11th    —   8:00-10:00am OR 10:00am-12:00pm
– varsity was able to make their final decisions on Wednesday, however the JV teams will need one more day to complete the tryout process.  All players other than the varsity group should report to the stadium field for a final day of tryouts, which will be held from 8:00-10:00am.  (Freshman will meet in the stadium as well.)    Some players/teams may move to our FOD fields if they are not too wet.   Varsity will be meeting at 8:30am in the main gym lobby for a team meeting.  Varsity will then practice from 10:00am-12:00pm.

Other notes:
Please be aware that even though we plan to announce teams on August 11th, we will start practices on the 12th and will have practices six days per week (Monday-Saturday) throughout the entire season.  Even though school does not begin until August 20th, we will have practices during the days between August 12th and 20th.

We hope this information helps everyone be fully aware and ready for tryouts.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email Coach Steib at ssteib@barrington220.org
