Additional Costs: Include gear, equipment, and any team-related trips and activities (see below)
Anticipated Levels of Play
The boys soccer program only offers a varsity team.
Practice and Game Schedule
The boys soccer team practices every day from 3:40 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. It is common to have practices and/or games scheduled on 3 or 4 Saturdays during the season as well. The team generally schedules 16 regular season games which are played after school. There are some exceptions to this from time to time with some games taking place on a Saturday or possibly at an away venue in the evening. Home games usually start at 4:00 p.m. and are played on Owens Field (our home field at Bear Creek). Away games usually involve early dismissals from class as we travel to games. See Boys Soccer Calendar (above).
Transportation is not needed for practices as we stay at the school for training. For away games, transportation will be provided by the school and the expectation is that students will travel together to all away games on the bus/van. Students are not allowed to drive their own vehicles or arrange their own transportation to away games.
Uniform, Gear, and Equipment
The school provides uniform jerseys and shorts which must be returned at the end of the season. Players must purchase their own shin guards and soccer cleats. The team plays games on both grass fields and field turf. Traditional cleats can be used on both. Specific turf shoes and/or screw in cleats are not recommended. Team warm-up hoodie and T-shirt are included with the registration fee.
The spring season can be cold and wet. Players may order the optional rain gear, but please plan accordingly and bring some warmer practice gear each day. Optional gear includes rain gear and black warm-up pants. Complete the gear size and optional gear order forms (see top of page) to ensure the correct sizes are available.
Out of Season Activities
The boys soccer team does not currently participate in official out of season activities. From time to time (e.g. in the summer), the boys organize optional “open field” practices that are generally run and promoted on their own. Bear Creek promotes and encourages boys to sign up and play soccer out of season through the various select-level club programs in the region.
