• WHS BOYS SOCCER SUMMER/FALL 2024 (updated March 4th) 

    Fall soccer season will be here before you know it. I know a number of you are planning your summer calendars, so hopefully the following information will help. PLEASE PASS THIS INFORMATION ON TO YOUR FRIENDS (Especially first-year students and their parents)

    A few items:

    1) Freshman Orientation Summer Kick-off event: Athletes that will be a first-year student during the fall of 2024 are invited to join us at the HS Stadium field on June 4th and 6th from 5 – 6:30pm for a short training session and a parent Q & A session to follow immediately afterward. IF YOU ARE A TRANSFER STUDENT, PLEASE CONTACT THE HEAD COACH PRIOR TO ATTENDING (contact info is below). Please be sure to bring: Summer WAIVER. running shoes, cleats, shin guards and appropriate soccer attire...AS WELL AS PLENTY OF WATER!!!  Help get the word out to incoming first-year students and their families.

    2)   PRE-SEASON Conditioning/skills camp (Strongly Recommended, but not required to participate in the fall high school season)
          a) When: Starts on Monday, August 5th. Camp will run for two weeks, Monday through Thursday from 7:30-9:30pm at the high school…there may be some “extra time” at the end for those that can stay and scrimmage (but no later than 10pm)
          b) Where:  At WHS on the JV SOCCER FIELD (south field behind the main stadium…near the tennis courts). 
          c) WAIVER FORM...please fill out and bring the waiver form (to be posted in the summer) to the first day you come to camp.
          d) Cost:  Fee of $50 (Checks made out to "WHS Boys Soccer")
          e) Bring: Running shoes, cleats, shin guards and appropriate soccer attire...AS WELL AS PLENTY OF WATER!!!
          f) What to expect: This is a strongly encouraged (though optional) summer training opportunity where we will be working on strength and general conditioning (some with a ball). Additionally, we will conduct various soccer drills and games to assess and teach skills.

    3)  Fall season sports registration.. This is completely separate from the conditioning camp mentioned above. PLEASE make sure to register on the computer through the school website. This typically opens at the beginning of August (More details to come here…https://www.wlwv.k12.or.us/site/default.aspx?PageID=1169  ). ALL athletes must clear the registration process before participating in tryouts starting Aug 19th

    4) Mandatory tryouts begin on Monday August 19th: Details on specific times and sessions will be published several days prior to the 19th, but plan on evening sessions similar to the conditioning camp time frame. Please plan to be there each evening that first week, Monday through Friday. Teams will be determined sometime during this week and specific practice times will be determined by which team an athlete makes. Additionally, please plan for separate JV and Varsity tryout sessions (If you do not wish to try out for varsity, you simply show up to the JV tryouts...If you get cut from the varsity tryout, you simply show up to the JV tryout time the next day...please email me if you have any questions about this) We don’t like to make cuts from our program, but if the numbers are not conducive to creating three or four teams we may need to cut athletes from the program. 

    Again…an athlete MUST BE CLEARED TO PLAY THROUGH THE REGISTRATION PROCESS MENTIONED ABOVE BEFORE THEY CAN STEP ON THE FIELD. (See Fall season sports registration)

    Finally, attendance is required daily, Monday through Friday from Monday Aug 19th until the end of the season (October or November).

    Please help get the word out!  Refer to the Athletic Clearance page for more information.  https://www.wlwv.k12.or.us/site/default.aspx?PageID=1169
