Women’s soccer will be adding as many as three new coaches to its staff for the upcoming 2020 season. Coach Tito has accepted the Varsity Head Coach and Clarenceville and for that reason he will not be coming back this spring, but we wish him good luck in his new adventure! Here’s some important information for the beginning of the season.
We will have conditioning/injury prevention sessions on Wednesday (March 4) and Friday (March 6) after school (until 4:15pm) in the weight room. All players available are encouraged to attend.
Tryouts will take place March 9, 10 & 11 from 3:15 to 5:00pm.
A parent meeting will take place on March 10 at 5:15pm. We’ll go through all the important information for the season as well as introducing the new staff members.
