Register, Register, Register!! If you plan to tryout, you MUST 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 a current physical. You do not want to be the player missing the first day because you do NOT have a cleared physical. Only registered players can tryout, and to be registered your physical must be accepted, with no exceptions.
New Player Meet and Greet virtual meeting will be on Thursday, August 4, at 6pm. The purpose of this meeting is for anyone new to the program to meet with the Coach and Seniors. They will share best practices and answer any questions to set you up for success during tryouts. All freshmen will be automatically invited. Non-freshman, if you want an invite, please send Aaron Swafford (firstname.lastname@example.org) an email requesting an invite.
Tryouts start on August 8, 2022. Tryouts are all week long, Monday through Friday, starting at 3:45pm, with a scrimmage on Saturday for those still in the pool. Teams will be selected starting with Varsity, then JV, and finally Fresh/Soph by Monday, August 15. Tryouts end daily around 5 or later. Ending times fluctuate, please stay flexible. Players need to bring their own water and shin guards. Do NOT bring a ball, as they will be provided. Do NOT wear club gear or any other HS’s information, you do not want to be that guy! Parents are not allowed on or near the field. Please wait to pick up players in your vehicles in the parking lot.
Parent Meeting is Tuesday, August 16. This meeting is only for players that make a team. More details will follow upon team selection.
Regular Season looks to be back to normal with 15 games for Varsity and JV. There will NOT be a Warrior Invitational this season. Coach Hampshire will address this at the Parent Meeting. There will be a Banquet this year! After the regular season games, there will be State Playoffs for Varsity. The season ends with the State Championship on November 12, 2022.
