Preseason & Tryouts

Girl’s Soccer

Preseason workouts for the 2023 girl’s soccer season begin in November of 2022. Tryouts will be in March of 2023.

Boy’s Soccer

It is a new era in Kennedy boy’s soccer, and a winning culture is only possible with a commitment to preparation and team bonding. All summer training is voluntary.

Players must arrive early to all sessions. Players who arrive late will not be permitted to participate. We follow CHSAA game rules, and thus, shin guards are required for participation in all training sessions, both preseason and in-season. Additionally, please bring water, running shoes and soccer cleats to all sessions.

Preseason: June 27th – July 29th, 2022

Mondays: 8:00am – 9:30am Turf Field*

Tuesdays: Rest

Wednesdays: Run 3 Miles on Your Own – Goal 24 Minutes

Thursdays: District Wide Goal Keepers Camp 8:00am – 10:00am – Contact Coach Matt for Invitation

Fridays: 8:00am – 9:30am Turf Field*

Weekends: Run 3 Miles on Your Own – Goal 24 Minutes

Preseason will focus on playing and getting in shape. We will save technical work and functional defensive, offensive and transition activities for the season. In preseason, we will let the game be the teacher, and mix in some conditioning to get us fit for the fall campaign.

*Players arriving late, or without shin guards, will not be permitted to participate (8:01am is late).

Team Week: 1st Week of August, 2022

All team week events except Wednesday’s soccer tennis and horseshoes will take place off campus. Players must ride the team bus in order to participate, and the bus will depart promptly from Kennedy at the times listed above.

Tryouts: August 8 – 11, 2022

Tryouts for the fall of 2022 boy’s soccer teams will be held from 3:00pm to 5:00pm, Monday through Thursday, on the second week of August. To be eligible to tryout, players must be enrolled at Kennedy High School, and they must have completed all steps in the athletics registration process (registration form, pay-to-play payment, and submitted valid physical). All the registration details are available on our Register to Play page.

In order to be considered for the varsity or JV teams, players must attend all sessions. Players who arrive late or do not bring shin guards will not be allowed to tryout (one minute late is late – arrive 15 minutes early). Please contact Coach Matt in advance to discuss any conflicts with this tryouts schedule.

Tryouts will include three fitness tests. Players who attend the preseason training will be prepared to perform at their maximum abilities for the fitness tests.

Following tryouts, players who make the varsity or JV soccer teams will train Monday through Friday, from 3:00pm to 5:00pm, on days when we do not have games. We will only practice on Saturdays that precede Monday games. There will never be any team activities on Sundays.

Scrimmages: End of Tryouts, Saturday, August 13, 2022

Both the varsity and JV teams will be scrimmaging in a multi-team event at Denver South High School from 8am to 1pm.
