Junior Varsity Soccer 2016

The Junior Varsity Soccer Team this year carries a few returning players who have taken on leadership roles during practices and in games.
Encouraging each other to remain focused during drills and conditioning has helped many players to improve rapidly to a level that is impressive during games. Trusting each other on the field and concentrating on their teammates' strengths will gear them toward success. The close-knit team cares for each other both on and off the field.

Practices are designed to maximize the number of touches on ball and to promote clear communication on the field during transitions. Moving without the ball to create space in order to make passing the ball easier is routinely practiced. While real game conditions are impossible to create during practice, a conscious effort is made to have each practice be as productive and practical as possible. As always, a high percentage of the current players will move on to play on the varsity squad in coming years.

The 2016 team is led by veteran Head Coach, Sarkis Boyadjian. The team does not have set captains, but captains are appointed before each match depending on leadership skills shown during practices that precede the match. The 2015 team finished with a record of 4-5.
