WHS Girls Soccer Summer Skills Training and Update

Hi High School Girls Soccer Players and Families

We hope everyone is having a great summer so far.
It is time to sign up for Summer Skills Training, which is held the week before WHS soccer tryouts begin, so it is a good chance to work on skills and conditioning just before tryouts. We are again very pleased to have the training run by former English Premier League player Nick Burke, who is high energy on the soccer field, and who will help the girls with skills and conditioning. The girls have told us in the past that high school tryouts go better if they have been running through the summer, going to captains practices, and attending the skills training the week before tryouts.
- Week of August 11-15th - at Mylod Field 7-9am
*** Check-in at MYLOD at 6:45am *** Please come prepared to play soccer, and also bring your running shoes.
