College Preparatory School for Girls Grades 3-12

Varsity Soccer


OVERVIEW

The 2017 varsity soccer team has a talented roster of 13 returning players and five new faces. Throughout the preseason, the team has worked hard, learned a new system, and has shown a lot of excitement during each session. Even during the hot summer days, the student-athletes have pushed themselves physically and mentally as they start their quest of bringing the championship banner back to Holton.

As the coaching staff and team prepares for a grueling ISL schedule, we understand the importance of working together as one unit. Through numerous drills and small sided games, we have focused on our offensive and defensive ‘shape’ as the game shifts from side to side. In addition, we have worked tirelessly on cycling the ball, playing the game with pace, and most importantly, playing for one another.

The team and coaching staff is looking forward to seeing you at our games and we thank you for all your wonderful support. Go Panthers!
