St Pius X JV and V Soccer Information

 

Junior Varsity fall soccer is open to 5th and 6th grades.   The team is coached by Edward Griffin, assisted by Frank Scarduzio and Helen Griffin is the communication point for all team queries, comments and questions.  Contact: GRIFFINHELED@AOL.COM.  

 

Varsity is 7th and 8th grade coaches by Chris Wilson and assisted by Matt Tumolo.  Games (CoEd, boys and girls) are usually Saturday or Sunday and are low commitment as we appreciate your child may be playing on a travel team.  Practices are usually twice a week (day to be determined).  We hope most children can make at least one to develop a “team”.   If you cannot make it to the game, we will survive as we appreciate the children have other sport commitments for clubs.  

 

The one thing we ask is clear communication of availability as far in advance as possible, flexibility on both sides is key. Experience is not necessary. Thank you coaches and parents for all you do to make it possible for your children to participate in St Pius X sports. Children must either be a student or actively participating in CCD at St Pius X.  

 

What is needed:

Soccer cleats

Shin guards

Hair tied up if applicable

Water 

Uniforms are provided.  


 

Flag Football

 

3rd and 4th Grade Flag Football will start next Monday, August 20th. Practice will be from 6-7 PM at the Incinerator Field. We will practice Monday, Wednesday and Friday the week of August 20th. All boys are to wear cleats and bring water. Please be sure to register your child as soon as possible so you can be included on all email notifications. Thank you!
