Anticipated Levels of Play
The girls soccer program only offers a varsity team.
Practice and Game Schedule
The girls soccer team practices every day from 3:45 p.m. – 5:45 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 Girls 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.
Retreats and Overnight Activities
During the season, it is common for the girls soccer team to organize several team activities including an overnight trip and away game. This might differ from year to year, but a typical season usually involves one overnight team trip for the varsity team (we stay in a hotel), along with several fun activities such as bowling, eating team meals, or gathering at a teammate’s house. All of these costs come at the expense of the family. Team meals, bowling, and hotel expenses (for an overnight trip) are all additional expenses that players will get billed for if/when they participate.
Out of Season Activities
The girls soccer team offers regular out of season activities throughout the summer including team camp during the first week of summer vacation in June, as well as regular practices and fitness center days throughout the summer months. Bear Creek promotes and encourages girls to sign up and play soccer out of season through the various select-level club programs in the region.
