Welcome to the St. Paul Central Boys Soccer Program 2020/2021 season!
Hi there, my name is Coach David and jointly with my coaching staff we are excited that you want to join our program at Central. Our intention is to build and maintain a soccer program that is among the best of the state, while developing great players and people. We have had strong back to back seasons, winning the St Paul City Conference and our section and placing 3rd at the State Tournament two years in a row and we want to build from there and continue to be among the best Soccer Programs of the state, and YOU could be part of it!
This letter will provide you with important information as you prepare for Central H.S. and playing high school soccer. Our Central soccer program is a very competitive sport program with a large time and effort commitment for a 3 ½ month period beginning in August and ending in late October. Tryouts are open to all eligible players, last year we had 127 kids trying out, and to keep the rosters of each team manageable and coachable we will make cuts. Central Soccer ONLY fields three 22 rostered player teams. The teams will consist of a Varsity, a JV, and a B-Squad. The B-Squad is made up only of 9th graders, and serves as their introduction to our program and the school. On Monday, August 17th official tryouts start! From this point, those selected to be Central soccer players can expect to play 5 or 6 days a week every week until the end of the season in October.
A key part of our program is our voluntary Central summer soccer training, during this time players get in top physical shape, do strength and conditioning training, learn about nutrition for performance, play a ton and get to know and play each other, the coaches, and captains, all while learning about our culture (#CENTRALSTRONG) and what it means to play for Central.
