IMPORTANT NEW UPDATE: Per Amphitheater School Board policy, there are no in-person practices allowed until further notice. Given there are still matches scheduled for later this month, players will be expected to log training requirements. That Google link should be live by Monday, January 4, 2021 and will be found on this website. In order to remain sharp in the event of matches being played, it is important that players not only log their training requirements, but work hard to make consistent improvements in each category.
Per a directive handed down by the Arizona Interscholastic Association and additional guidance from the Amphitheater School District, all winter sports, which includes Boy's Soccer, are being temporarily paused. Practices resumed as of Monday, December 14th. Programs meeting other requirements beyond that date will be eligible for a return to competition with games potentially beginning as early as January 19th, 2021. Of course players and parents alike should be aware that the dates and guidance are subject to change given the fluid nature of the current situation. All IRHS Soccer stakeholders are encouraged to refer frequently to this website for any updates to the current timeline or protocols.
In the meantime, players are not eligible for practice when it resumes until he is cleared by the Athletic Office. That includes a packet with a completed physical and paying a participation fee. Additionally, players should be taking every opportunity to get extra help with any classes they are in danger of receiving D's or F's which could endanger their ability to take part in games when those resume. Do not lose focus on grades!
The schedule for both Varsity and JV will be posted as soon as we have more information about times and locations. However, Varsity players can expect to practice M-F, and JV players practice M-Th.
Any additional questions can be directed to the following staff members:
Varsity team or general program questions: Erik Wolf
JV team questions: Ron Kovacs
Any questions related to the IRHS Men's Soccer Booster Club or to offer help in fundraising efforts can be directed to the IRHS Men's Soccer Booster Club personnel found on their link on the left.
Thank you, and we hope to see everyone on the field soon!
