2021 ABK Girls Soccer Season Update (as of 4/26/21)
Hi ABKers, The season starts today! I hope you and your families are ready for this unique season. Here is an update regarding the 2021 Soccer Season. Please know that in this uncertain time, all dates and plans are subject to change.
Register, Register, Register!! If you plan to tryout, 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? There are 4 days of tryouts and you do not want your player missing the first day (25% of tryouts) because they are not registered. Only registered players can tryout, no exceptions.
Tryouts start Today April 26, 2021. Teams will be selected by Thursday, April 29. Tryouts will start right after school and go until dark or later (after dark only if we are on the turf). Duration of tryouts is a lot shorter than years past so ending times will fluctuate, please stay flexible. Players need to bring their own water, shin guards, and masks. 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 kid! Parents are not allowed on or near the field. Please wait to pick up players in vehicles.
Tryouts and Quarantine. From the athletic director and going over our CHSAA guidelines, here is the protocol for potential players quarantined during tryouts. A minimum of one day for a tryout will be provided. Therefore, depending on when a potential player is released from quarantine and is allowed to return, that athlete will get at least one day to tryout. Understand that our game season begins on 5/3, and teams must be made by 4/29. Therefore, a tryout may end up being done during a team training session. Please do everything reasonable (while still physically attending school) to try and keep yourselves out of possible contact scenarios. Remember, you MUST physically attend in building school in order to participate.
Virtual Parent Meeting for players that make a team is planned for Friday, April 30. More details will follow.
Varsity/JV/FreshSoph Game Schedule begins on May 3 with the Fresh/Soph game followed by Varsity and JV playing on Tuesday. Throughout the season Varsity and JV will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays, while Fresh/Soph will play on Mondays and Wednesdays. All information is subject to change.
Regular Season will be 7 games strictly within our Conference. There will not be a Warrior Invitational. A Banquet is to be determined. After the regular season games, there will be a 3-game playoff to set teams for the State Playoffs. The State Playoffs will have only 16 teams due to the limited amount of time.
Thanks and GO ABK!!!!!
