ABK 2021 Fall Boys Soccer Season Update (as of 7/12/21)
Hi ABKers, The season is right around the corner! I hope you and your families are ready for an exciting season. Here is an update regarding the 2021 Soccer Season that is planned to start on August 9, 2021, https://chsaanow.com/tools/calendars/2021-22/. Please see the link to CHSAA’s 2021-22 Calendar.
Preseason. Kickarounds continue to be run by Seniors on Monday and Fridays from 8-9:45 am. Kickarounds are an informal time to connect and meet other players in the program and kick the ball around and have some fun. They will be run by returning varsity players(typically seniors). Please try to bring a soccer ball and a water bottle if you plan on coming. Contact Alex Bissett (email@example.com) with any questions.
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 a current physical and have registered with CHSAA. Why is this so important? You do not want a player missing the first day because they are not registered. Only registered players can try out, no exceptions.
Freshman and New Player Meet and Greet virtual meeting will be on Thursday, August 5, at 6 pm. The purpose of this meeting is for incoming freshman or anyone new to the program to meet with the Coach and some Seniors. They will share best practices and answer any questions. If you want an invite, please send Aaron Swafford (firstname.lastname@example.org) an email requesting an invite.
Tryouts start on August 9, 2021. Tryouts are a week long and teams will be selected by Monday, August 16. Tryout times are to be determined until school starts. During school, it will start right after classes and go until 5 pm or later. Ending times will fluctuate, please stay flexible. Players need to bring their own water and shin guards. Masks need to be determined as we get closer. 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 vehicles.
Parent Meeting is Tuesday, August 17. This meeting is only for players that make a team. More details will follow.
Regular Season looks to be back to normal with 15 games. There will be a Warrior Invitational and 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 11 or 12, 2021. Thanks and let me know if you have any questions. GO ABK!!!!!
