Girls soccer tryouts
Greetings, my name is Putney and I will be coaching the Girls’ Soccer team this Fall. Tryouts will be held on August 12th (Monday) and August 13th (Tuesday), weather permitting. The Tryouts will be held on the Field beside the school from 4:00 until 6:00. Again, this is for females only and ONLY 6th, 7th, and 8th graders may Tryout. I have included 5th grade in this E-mail as I will need between 2-3 managers and I prefer young ladies from the 5th grade who have a serious interest in soccer and who are interested in playing for JT Moore in the future! Players will need shin guards and water as it will be very hot. Cleats are recommended but not necessary if you are unsure of making the team and do not want to spend the extra money. If a player makes the team cleats will be necessary! Everyone is encouraged to come out. Players who did not make the team last season may make the team this season. Athletes with no soccer experience can certainly make the team based on athletic ability if they have potential as soccer players. Please note that if you made the team last season that does not automatically mean that you will make the team this season. I will be taking around 24 field players and 2-3 goalies. We need younger goalies, preferably 6th graders. If you come out for goalie you will need to bring your own gloves if you wish to use a pair. Tryouts will consist of some conditioning and some skill drills but will primarily be based upon scrimmaging on a large field 11v11 and on a small field as well. I will rotate players on the two fields and decisions will be based upon performance in these areas, as well as on conditioning. If there are tough decisions to be made it is possible that Tryouts could be extended into Wednesday, I will let you know ASAP if this happens. The Team Roster will be posted on Evrits on Wednesday the 14th and a paper copy will be posted in the Office window ! as well. I think I covered everything regarding Tryouts but please contact me if you have questions or you feel I left some critical information out!

There may be a spot or two that asks for a Social Security #, please DO NOT include a Social Security #!! If a player does not make the team these Forms can be used to tryout for other sports later in the year, please retrieve them!!
We operate off of donations and one Fundraiser, if you receive this and are not interested in soccer please feel free to donate to the team!! Make a check out to JT Moore, have your student bring it to me in A-17, and send me an E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your address, phone #, and that you want 100% or your donation to go to the JT Moore Girls’ Soccer team, thanks for considering it!!
Finally, please do not ask me to stop sending you E-mails, I cannot as these are mass E-mails through Evrits!! If you have no interest in soccer be aware that you will not receive any more of these messages once the team is chosen on August the 14th, thanks for your patience in this matter!! I look forward to seeing you at Tryouts and please feel free to ask me any questions that you might have….Best….PUTNEY
