Dear Lady Panthers and Parents,

     Your child has shown an interest in the Girls’ Soccer Team at Potomac Middle School. Tryouts will begin on March 21st, 2022 and the final team will be selected after tryouts on March 24th.  I will choose approximately 17 students for the team because of our supply of uniforms and so that players have a better opportunity to play in the game.

     Your daughter will need to have a completed sports physical exam and a Concussion training on file with the school.  Please have the physician fill out the Prince William Physical Form to be eligible.  Make a copy for your records at home and turn in the original to the Potomac Main Office, Mr. Cordero or have her bring it the first day of tryouts.  All athletes must be academic and conduct eligible with Potomac Middle to remain on the team.  Prior experience with playing soccer and their rules are not prerequisites for trying out.  Concussion training can be completed on the PWCS Website or Potomac Middle’s Athletic Page.

     All candidates after having a physical exam on file and concussion training will go through the same try out procedures. Prior experience for the game of soccer and an understanding of the rules are not prerequisites. The girls will be evaluated in the following areas:

• Running endurance and speed

•Ball control while dribbling and trapping

• Passing and shooting technique and accuracy

• Supporting other players on the field

• Marking up of opponents

• Vision to create a play or open up space on the field

• Most of all Reliability, Work Ethic, attitude, cooperation, and effort.

     Try outs will begin immediately after school and end at 5:00 PM each day. All of the girls must either have transportation provided at 5:00 PM or take the activity bus home.  Please be prompt in picking up your child.  Potomac Middle School students are not allowed to walk home.

     If selected for the team, your child will be expected to stay daily until 5:00 PM for practice.  On home game days she is also expected to help out with equipment storage.  In the event that there are any changes to the schedule or practice days, the coach will give as much advance notice as possible. The school will provide the uniform, but your child must be equipped with her own cleats and shin guards. A schedule of games will be provided to each team member along with other important information on our first practice day. 

     If you have any questions or concerns regarding tryouts for the girls’ soccer team, please feel free to contact me at  Thank you for your support!
