    Welcome!

    Congratulations on your interest in joining the Ramsey High School Boys Soccer Family.  Our “family” consists of current players and their families as well as many alumni and their families who still contribute in various ways and stay up-to-date on how our program is doing.  The Ramsey High School Soccer Program is one of the best and most consistent programs in the state, an accomplishment that all our current and former players are very proud of.  Our success and family atmosphere has come from the hard work and dedication of our players and their families who put in the necessary effort on the field, at team pasta parties and program fundraisers to create a great experience for our players year after year.  Below please find the information, program and coaching staff expectations, and other things you need to hopefully become a member of our “family”.

    General Expectations

    Training on your own — You must show up to preseason in shape! Preseason is not the time to get in shape. If you want to be part of the program you must be willing to put in the effort and time.

    Unfortunately, cuts are a very real possibility--based on skill level, fitness, work ethic, team work, dedication, et al. Coaching staff decisions are made in what is determined as at the best interest of each team and the program as a whole.  All decisions on cuts are final for the current season. 

     

    (Everything Below Pending on Covid-19 Restrictions)
