As we continue to make great strides in the development of this program as a whole, as well as to each and every individual that is a part of it, it is important to “keep the door open” in regards to communication. Hopefully this update helps in giving you, whether you are a parent, or a prospective student athlete, all of the information you need to come and take part in what it means to be a Nighthawk!
This program is open to all boys, grades 9-12, interested in the game of soccer. As part of becoming and maintaining a competitive program, we have a variety of “off-season” resources here to help all player develop year round!
Tryouts/Pre-season Fitness – Will begin on Monday morning, August 6th, 7AM at the NHS Track. Please be sure all registration paperwork has been filled out, or you will not be able to participate. Please contact John Calderwood: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
