Hello Rooftop Sports Community,
For those of you that have been anxiously awaiting, Soccer season is finally upon us. Last years girls and boys squads put in a tremendous effort that was cut short with the boys not quite making the playoffs and the girls being eliminated in the semi-finals. Along with that, we had to say goodbye to our very talented 8th graders but also get to move on and upward with our new and extra skillful 8th, 7th and 6th graders.
In addition, I’m very excited to announce that we have a few changes to our coaching staff this year. T, Andrew Gardner and his wife welcomed in a beautiful baby boy into their lives, and understandably decided to take a step back from coaching. Having said that, I welcome Mohamed Ghaleb and Noel Manerud to our boys coaching staff. Mohamed is extremely well versed in all things Soccer and just last year coached the Presidio girls team to the finals (no pressure) :). For those of you that do not know, Noel Manerud is also well versed in the art of Soccer and is also a parent in our Rooftop community.

We understand that schedules may conflict but attending at least 2 of the 3 tryouts is mandatory with Friday being a “must attend” for both teams.
The first official matches start on the week of December 1st and go through January 20th.
Once team rosters are set, practices and matches will be on the following:
The boys team will practice on Mondays and Wednesdays (same time & place) with matches on Tuesdays and Thursdays at various fields.
The girls team will practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays (same time & place) with matches on Wednesdays and Fridays at various fields.
Last but not least, if your athlete has not yet turned in the necessary forms to participate in the middle school sports program, the forms are attached below. The physicals are good for one calendar year while the signed parental consent and concussion forms need to be with your child at the time of the tryouts.
