Dear NEST+m Students and Families,
We hope this message finds you well and enjoying these final weeks of summer vacation.
Attached below you will find the boys’ and girls’ soccer try-out dates for August and September. Try outs will be held on Baruch field, the entrance is located on Stanton Street between Baruch Place and Mangin Street.
Students must attend practice / tryouts with an up-to-date PSAL medical form and parental consent form.
These forms can be found and printed via the PSAL website.
(http://www.psal.org/ -> drop down tab “Resources & Procedures” -> click on “Printable Forms” -> under the section, “Parent & Student Forms”, open: “Interscholastic Athletics Parental Consent Form” AND “Interscholastic Sports Medical Form” -> print and fill these out.No student will be allowed to play or participate in try-outs without these forms.
Students should attend try outs with water, cleats, and active wear. Typically, there are no working water fountains on the field, so a full water bottle is necessary. The soccer schedule for 2016 – 2017 has been posted on the PSAL website. Please review the schedule to ensure it accommodates your schedule and you will be able to attend games. Practices will generally be held 5 days per week after school and occasionally on weekends. It is a short season with a quick start – the boys’ and girls’ first game is on September 9, 2016.
In order to play in the first game in September, students must have attended 8 practices (try outs count) prior to the game.
Students should be running and training prior to try outs.
