East Soccer Parents and Players,
I hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying watching this amazing World Cup! I am sending out an email because of some confusion with the dates for the start of the season on the school’s website.
Here are the official dates for Pre-season, Tryouts and the beginning of the regular season:
Pre-Season Workouts (Optional):
Monday July 16 – Friday July 20 No workouts due to a “Dead Period” .
Monday July 23 – 6pm-7pm Fitness – Meet in Weight Room at 6pm, bring running shoes.
Wednesday July 25 – 6pm-7:30pm Pick-up soccer – Meet at practice fields at 6pm.
UNC Team Camp (Optional):
Saturday July 28 – Monday July 30
East Chapel Hill has once again been selected to attend UNC Team Camp during the summer. The camp has worked great the past two years because it provides our players an opportunity to train and compete together as a team, before the season even starts. There is an option to stay overnight for the camp in the dorms at Granville Towers, but most players usually choose to commute, as the training sessions are in Chapel Hill. The camp is open to any potential East Soccer player…this includes rising freshmen!
Here is a link to all of the information for the UNC Team Camp:
