8th graders planning to play soccer for HHS: Coach Everett will be coming to GMS on Wednesday, May 29th, at your lunch period to talk to you about playing soccer in high school. Coach Everett will be coming to HMS on Wednesday, May 29th at 2:45 PM to talk to future players at HMS about the upcoming soccer season. Basically, informal practices will begin in July and the season is underway at the start of August! Coach Everett will give you all the information you will need for the upcoming season. A player and parent meeting will be held in June.
Current HHS soccer players: There will be a quick informational meeting on Wednesday, May 29th, at 3:15 PM in room G150 for all boys interested in going out for soccer. You will get all needed information for the summer workouts, parent meeting, and the season schedule.
Current HHS soccer players and future players: Informal practices will begin in July. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday will be practice on the field, and Tuesday and Thursday will be a mix of working in the fitness center and on the field. These schedules will be given out
Soccer Youth Group: The weather delayed the start of the Soccer Youth Group, but we still want to get some sessions in before summer. We will hold the training sessions on Sunday evenings, from 5:00-6:30 on the JV soccer field (by Hortonville Elementary School). The sessions are free and open to anyone over the age of six. Hope to see you there! There is one session left on June 2nd
Hortonville is part of Stevi B's Spirit club! Our spirit night is the third Wednesday of each month. If anybody eats there on those days and tells the cashier they support Hortonville Soccer, 10% of the sale goes back to Hortonville Soccer. This will not only help the high school programs, but also the youth program for grades 4-8. We are also selling Stevi B value cards. They are a great value! If interested, email Shannon Everett at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our remaining Hortonville Soccer Spirit Night is:
Wisconsin Dells: We are in the beginning stages of planning our trip to Mount Olympus in August 2013! Just like we did last summer, we will be going to Mt. Olympus as a team (for those who want to attend) in late August. This trip is open to players, friends, and family members. The cost for a day at Mt. Olympus will be $13.50 (tax included) and covers all park ammenities and a hot dog/chips/soda meal. If interested in joining in on this fun, email Shannon.
Summer Contact Days
Informal Summer Practices: Beginning July 1st, we will be getting together and working out as a team. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday: We will meet on the JV field from 4:00-6:00 PM. Captains will run these practices (Coaches are not allowed to coach, but they will be there observing, and a parent supervisor will also be there). Tuesday and Thursday: 4:00-5:00 PM in the fitness center and 5:00-6:00 PM on the field. These practices are not mandatory, but strongly encouraged. It is a great chance to work together as a team and increase skills and fitness level.
Coaches' Contact Days: The WIAA (WI High School sports governing board) allows us 5 days during the summer where we can coach and be together as a team. For summer of 2013, we will have our five contact days from July 8th - July 12th. The practices will be held at the JV soccer field. While the practices are voluntary, I would like anyone interested for going out for the upcoming soccer seasons to attend. You will meet your coaches and teammates. We will run drills and have some game play. Please let me know if you are interested in playing once the season starts, but are unable to attend the contact days.
Hortonville Soccer Youth Program
We have several successful sessions of Youth Soccer, and with over 60 participants signed up, we have a nice group of future soccer players coming up! Join in on the fun! Please refer to the update above for dates.
Please review bottom of this page for further details on our Youth Program.
Polar Bear Soccer Camp
Each year we host a soccer camp. This upcoming summer, it will run from July 22nd-26th and be from 9:00-11:30am at Greenville Lion's Park. It's a great opportunity for our soccer program to impress on the kids a love for the sport. We ask that soccer players (boys & girls) from the HS program be involved as coaches. The hours can be put toward your community service hours required for graduation. Incoming Freshmen and graduating Seniors are very welcome to participate as coaches. Players from ages 3 to 13 are invited to participate. Please register using the registration form.
Each year we make homemade pizzas as our fundraiser. It's been our most successful fundraiser in our continual effort to improve the soccer environment at HHS. The monies raised in the past have gone back into rebuilding the fields and improving equipment. We're working toward getting fencing around the current JV field with our long term goal to add lights and make that the JV & Varsity field. The pizza forms will be handed out once practice begins. Each player is expected to sell pizzas and be present for the pizza making. Parents are encouraged to help make the pizzas as well. It is actually a fun day and is usually over by noon. In the future, we will have the boys and girls sell and make pizzas twice a year. Currently, we have the boys sell in Fall and the girls sell in Spring. We will be having the two join together. If interested in selling pizzas for the girls season, please email Paul at email@example.com
Any athlete participating in any sport must turn in a series of forms. These forms must be turned in before an athlete can participate in practices. These forms include: physical (or alternate), Co-Curricular, Emergency Medical Information and Media Release. These forms are all available off the HHS Soccer website: http://www.hasd.org/schools/hs/hhsactivitiessoccerboys.cfm (lower right hand corner). Return the forms to the Student Services office. Your coaches are unable to drop the forms off in the office for you. If you do not have your forms in, you will not be allowed to take part in the Tryouts. So please find a day during the summer and take care of all of your forms.
If you plan to play soccer the fall of 2013: There will be a pre-season meeting and it will be sometime in May 2013. Once summer is nearer, refer to the websites for the week of contact. If you have a child interested in playing soccer in high school who is in 8th grade (or not yet in 8th grade), please feel free to contact me with any questions at any time. We look forward to having your child become part of the Hortonville soccer program!
Current boy high school students: Be sure you are staying fit on the off season. If you are playing on an indoor team, send your me your schedule and I will try to make some games! We will meet in May of 2013 to go over some important upcoming dates and information. Til then, rest up!
For info. on next season: Basically, over the summer, we will have summer contact days and summer practices. These practices will be run by the Varsity captains and will have a parent there to supervise. Coaches may be present, but they are unable to actually coach on these days. The practices will run from 3:30 - 5:30 on the JV field. These practices will include a fair amount of cardio along with drills and ball work. Please come to practice in shape and ready to work hard.
Player/Parent meeting: There will be a player and parent meeting in the HHS cafeteria sometime in June of 2013. Schedules, expectations, and forms will be discussed at this meeting. Stay tuned!
"Open field:" Just as the girls have a soccer "open gym" in the fall and winter, the boys will have an "open field" in the summer. The girls have weather to contend with, so they must practice in the gym during the off season, but the boys are lucky because they can play soccer outside on our home field during the summer. The open field will be available for players to come and bond as a team, learn some skills, and play some games. This is not mandatory by any means, but is a great opportunity to bring new players in and to mix old players with new players. The coaches will not run or work with atheltes at these open fields. An adult will be supervising. If you are a parent and are interested in supervising an open field, please contact me. Dates have not yet been decided, please check back soon!
Summer Fitness: As well as participating in the open field games, you are encouraged to work out over the summer. Many players play soccer for club teams in the spring and summer. That is great conditioning! Send your schedules to me, Coach Everett, and I will try to make it to some games! If you are not playing on a club team, staying soccer fit is very important. The coaches encourage you to be a part of Hortonville's Build a Bear program during the summer. We also encourage you to exercise in the fitness center. Some players are organizing work out days in the fitness center. Refer back to this website for the dates (they will be posted in March). These activities will help you prepare for soccer training.
Tryouts Dates for tryouts for the 2013 are not yet determined. Once tryouts occur and practices begin, all practices will run from 3:30 - 5:30. Practices will continue to go until 5:30 once the school year begins, but players who need to catch the activity bus will be allowed to leave at 5 in order to catch the bus.
The season game schedule can be found at www.bayconference.org . The Bay Conference website has the most updates and current schedules. The schedules can change due to weather and other teams needing to make changes, so please refer to the Bay Conference website often to check for changes.
Both Varsity and JV players will receive a home and away jersey, shorts, warm up top & bottom and a bag, which are returned at the end of the season. Players are responsible for purchasing their own socks. Both a white and a red pair are required (the needed socks will be explained when the season begins). There will be an order form passed out to players once the teams have been decided. The mandatory socks will be on that order form, as well as extra items such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, and Hortonville Soccer attire that players and families will be able to order if they wish.
Comment from the coach: 2012 was a GREAT season for boys soccer! We had a strong season and are ready and looking forward to another great season in 2013.
Some highlights were: taking second place in the conference, beating Seymour and West DePere (the two other top teams in the conference), scoring the top number of goals in the conference, we had some positive news coverage for our program, and we really grew as a team.
