The soccer teams compete in the TAACS. The girls soccer team has played in 5 of the last 6 state championship games. The boys soccer team has made it to the state playoffs 4 years in a row.
Students who have a practice uniform need to wear their practice uniform to try-outs. Students who do not have a practice uniform need to wear their P.E. uniform to try-outs. If a student has neither a practice uniform nor a P.E. uniform, she must wear appropriate athletic wear.
Try-outs will be “closed” try-outs with no spectators.
If your child is interested in playing soccer, they must sign-up in the high school hallway.
For students to be eligible for try-outs the first day, they must have completed the paperwork on FamilyId.
If your child played a fall sport and you have completed the registration on FamilyID you will still need to login to your account and register under the spring sport your child will be playing.
Volleyball, football, cross country, and basketball athletes do not need to turn in a new physical form (unless their physical has expired – physicals expire one year to date).
All athletes must be passing all subjects and maintain a C average overall. For example, an athlete can have all A’s, but if he has one F he will not be eligible to play. Also, if a student is passing all classes but has 3 C’s and 3 D’s he will not be eligible to play because he is not maintaining a C average overall. These are the Tennessee Association of Christian Schools’ (TACS) eligibility policies. All grade averages are cumulative from the first day of each semester.
If a student is off for grades, he will still be required to attend practices and home games unless instructed differently by his coach. Ineligible players are not allowed to attend away games. Sometimes when an athlete is off for grades, he is required by the coach to not participate in practice. If an athlete is ineligible due to grades, he is still required to wear “game day” dress to school on game days since he is still part of the team. If the coach does not deem it necessary for an ineligible athlete to attend the game competition with the team, the athlete will not be allowed to attend the athletic function.
The game season will begin mid-March and end the first week of May. Boys will have a Varsity state tournament May 3-5 and the girls will have a state tournament May 10-12 with the location still to be determined by the TAACS. There will be a trip fee for overnight trips. Trip fees are usually around $50.00 a night.
Athletes are expected to abide by the policies in the Athletic Section of the Student Handbook.
Once you have committed to the team, you are expected to complete the season. Students who do not attend practice for any length of time for any excuse other than a medical excuse when present at school will be dismissed from the team. Athletes who do not compete in the final games of the season will be considered dismissed from the team.
We look forward to a great soccer season. We appreciate your support and dedication to the MRBS athletic program.
