Tryouts begin the week of August 19th. There will be a morning session on M/W/F for fitness testing/conditioning and an evening session M-F to assess the categories below. In order to tryout you must have your paperwork filled out and submitted online, a current physical on file (freshman, juniors and transfers), fees paid, ASB purchased prior to the 1st day of morning conditioning. You can find all information online through the Summmit website: https://www.bend.k12.or.us/summit/student-life/athletics. I will be getting a list of who is cleared to participate the Friday before tryouts. The athletic office will be closed the first day of tryouts so DO NOT wait to get everything turned in. Please bring cleats, shinguards, appropriate clothing, water and snack, and medical supplies (as needed) to both sessions.
Players will be evaluated by coaching staff in the following areas: technical ability, tactical awareness, attitude/coachability, and fitness level. At the end of the week/weekend teams will be posted via Student ID on the website. Every year there is concern of "cuts." Over the last couple of years our tryout numbers and skill level have increased to a point where "cuts" and tough decisions have become inevitable. Players will be made aware of the tryout process throughout the week and parents will be made aware of the process through a parent meeting and/or email.
