8th Grade Kickarounds (4/21/23 update) ABK is holding three optional/non mandatory kickarounds, open to any current 8th grade soccer players, on Mondays, May 8th, May 15th, and May 22nd. From 5:30pm-6:30pm. These will land outside of our current varsity girls game days and directly after our practice.
Important info: Try to arrive around 5:15pm at Varsity soccer fields on the East side of campus, at the student parking lot. Players can be dropped off and walk through the gate and sit in the middle of bleachers to get suited and booted. Once the varsity team clears out, I'll direct players on activity for the day.
Please don't wear club gear to train in, and white tops are preferred. Have shin guards and we will provide soccer balls.
Parent Guidelines: Let this be the player's experience. Drop them off for the hour or remain in parking lot if you want. Let your player enjoy meeting teammates and coaches without parent intervention. Coaches will have plenty of time to meet parents, but just not yet.
Pickup time is 6:30pm.
Please fill out this google form if you plan on attending any of the sessions by April 29th.

Hi ABKers, The season starts in one week! I hope you and your families are ready for this upcoming season. Here is an update regarding the Soccer Season that is planned to start on February 27, 2023. Please know that all dates and plans are subject to change.
Register, Register, Register!! If you plan to try out, please register ASAP, click the link https://arapahoehs-ar.rschooltoday.com/ and scroll down and click on the Registration button. Please read the text on the page, as you will need an approved current physical, which will take a few days to process.You will get a confirmation email on your registration when it is accepted. Why is this so important? There is One week for tryouts, and you do not want your player missing the first day (20% of tryouts) because they are not registered. Only registered players can try out, no exceptions. If you have any questions, please contact Janelle Weems - Administrative Assistant, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, Phone: 303-347-6021.
