Boys Soccer Information

Conditioning for Boys Soccer will be each week until tryouts. Contioning is on TUE-THU 4:15-5:30pm.  

During conditioning we ask all players to follow these guidelines:

1) Have all necessary paperwork completed on Planet HS or you can’t condition.

2) Have a mask on your person at all times.

3) Have tennis shoes and cleats each day and dress appropriately for weather. We may be at the fields.  We may be at the stadium. Parents, please pick up your sons in the tennis parking lot each day at 5:35pm. 

4) I will check your temperature at the beginning of each conditioning session at the gate between the game field and practice field and a roster will be turned in to the athletic trainers for contact tracing purposes.

5) Don’t come to the conditioning sessions if you’re symptomatic.

Unfortunately, we can only accommodate 30 players for conditioning due to COVID protocols at this time.  Each of our two coaches will have their own facility and 15 players.  We have more than 30 players considering returners and prospective players, so the fairest way to do this is by sign ups.  Each day there will be a sign up sheet posted as a google form on the app and it’s first come first serve.  You must sign up each day and you can only sign up for that day.  If you don’t sign up for the app, you won’t have access to the sign up google form and you can’t participate in conditioning.  Information about the app is below.    

*If we have more than 30 sign ups for a particular day those players on that list will be guaranteed a spot for the following day.  Remember, you must fill out a new google form for each day.  

As a reminder, players make sure you join us on TeamApp:

1) Access and/or Download TeamApp (www.teamapp.com)

2) Create a TeamApp account

3) Search for Spring Valley Boys Soccer

4) Join our app and the “Interested Players” group

5) Complete the “Player Profile (Google Form)” found under Web Links (https://forms.gle/er9y3imXcWkAggHb7)

Zachary Huang Aces ACT

Spring Valley Junior Zachary Huang, earned the highest possible composite score of 36 on the ACT. Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, on average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn the top score. The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1–36, and a student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores. Congratulations Zachary !

3) Have tennis shoes and cleats each day and dress appropriately for weather. We may be at the fields.  We may be at the stadium. Parents, please pick up your sons in the tennis parking lot each day at 5:35pm.

Unfortunately, we can only accommodate 30 players for conditioning due to COVID protocols at this time.  Each of our two coaches will have their own facility and 15 players.  We have more than 30 players considering returners and prospective players, so the fairest way to do this is by sign ups.  Each day there will be a sign up sheet posted as a google form on the app and it’s first come first serve.  You must sign up each day and you can only sign up for that day.  If you don’t sign up for the app, you won’t have access to the sign up google form and you can’t participate in conditioning.  Information about the app is below.
