Maryville Middle School Boys Soccer Tryouts
Tryouts for all interested 6th, 7th and 8th grade boys at MRIS, CGIS and MJHS will take place Monday and Wednesday, February 18 and 20, 2019 at Vulcan fields in Maryville (weather permitting).
The tryout schedule will be as follows:
4:45 pm - 5:00 pm:      Player Registration
5:00 pm – 6:00 pm:     Player Evaluations
Please bring a size 5 soccer ball to tryouts and wear shin guards with clothing appropriate for the weather conditions.  It is also recommended that players bring water or a sports drink. Four mandatory forms (Player and Parent Information Form, Waiver & Release, Code of Sportsmanship and Behavior, Concussion Form) must be completed prior to tryouts.  You may find 3 of these forms at at smmss.net or email MaryvilleMiddleSchoolSoccer@gmail.com to obtain electronic copies of these forms.  If you are unable to print and complete the forms prior to tryouts, please arrive early so the documents can be completed prior to player evaluations.  
No money will be collected at tryouts.  Fees (approximately $100-125) will be determined after tryouts so the number of players in the program can be considered and detailed expenses can be calculated. Fees will be due the week after tryouts once rosters are made. 
If you have any further questions, please email MaryvilleMiddleSchoolSoccer@gmail.com
