2012 Golf Fundriser
The Highlands Girls Soccer team is sponsoring
with the Williams YMCA a golf outing at Twin
Oaks on June 129th.
We are responsible for providing 120 golfers for
the event and are asking that each family within
the program provide one golfer for the event.
Proceeds will go toward team equipment and
The cost is $100 to play and it includes a lunch, a
dinner, and several golf related freebies.
There will also be a silent and live auction after
the event and we are looking for donations of
auction items of any kind.
Spring/Summer Conditioning
There will be organized conditioning by the coaching staff. We are
working on the venues (due to construction starting at Tower Park)
and plan on starting May 21st. All sessions prior to Monday July 16th
are voluntary.
Players are expected to come to try-outs IN SHAPE!
Also, if a player is prone to shin splints or other leg ailments when
running please be proactive about the situation.
– New pair of quality running shoes / professional fitting
– Consult Tracy or physical therapist about prevention/preparation
We condition to prevent injuries not to create them.
Dead Period
The KHSAA mandates a “dead period.”
June 25th until July 9th.
This is a period of time designated by the
state when coaches may not have any
contact with their players.
This is an excellent time for family
vacations or camps.
Family vacations are a fun and important part of the
As with camps, it would be best to schedule vacations
before July 16th.
After July 16th, the absences will be considered
Try-outs are NOT to be missed. They fall at the same
time every year.
Once try-outs have been completed and teams have been
decided attendance is mandatory unless discussed with
the coaching staff.
The absence of a player impacts the entire team as we
practice and work to establish chemistry and cohesion,
especially at the varsity level.
Physical Forms
Every athlete MUST have a current
physical on file before they can try-out.
Physicals are good for a calendar year.
You will need to submit a copy of your
completed physical form to Tracy Piner
Please make sure that ALL information is
complete on the form, especially SSN,
county of birth, and signatures.
No current physical, no try-out!
Emergency Information Form
Titled Athlete Emergency Information
Needs to be completely filled out and
mailed in with your copy of your physical.
