Boys' Soccer - head coach: Dan Compton

The first practice will be Monday, Oct 28.  Practices will start directly after school (around 3:05) and last until 4:30.  Due to early release, there will be no practices on Wednesday afternoons. On the other days, rain or shine, we will be outside practicing and playing games once games begin, so have appropriate gear prepared.  Athletes are expected to have their own shinguards and appropriate footwear (since we do practice on grass, cleats are recommended but not required) at all practices and games.

Game schedules are not finalized yet, but should be by the end of the first week of practices.  I imagine starting games somewhere around the week of Nov 11-15.  We do play out games at the LWSD high schools, so most of our home games will be at either Redmond or Eastlake HS.
 
The season is over somewhere in the week prior to Winter Break (Dec 16-20).
