Soccer

PROGRAM  OVERVIEW

Student-athletes in the 6th-8th grades (4th, 5th, 9th with coach permission) can tryout for the boys and girls soccer teams, which compete in the Spring Season. Practices will be held following school from 3:45-4:45pm on Tuesday through Thursday on the upper campus turf and futsal court.

Players will be provide match uniforms. They should come prepared with BOTH cleats and "flats" (i.e. indoor or tennis shoes) for EVERY practice session. Our training curriculum incorporates an innovative mix of small-sided (turf) and futsal (gym) work that will require activities on a variety of playing surfaces to maximize technical development. Shinguards - covered by proper soccer socks - are also required at every session.

Roughly 50% of games will be "home" on the Jubilee field with the remaining games "away" at various Austin-area sports complexes or opponent fields. Kickoff times are typically between 3:30-6:30, with players expected to arrive at least 45 minutes early to every match. Teams will NOT practice on match day, but they ARE expected to remain on campus for activities such as team walk-thrus and study halls. Absences from team activities will impact playing time and student-athletes should only tryout if they are available for all matches (barring excused absences).

Our soccer program is overseen by Coach Nick Marquez, who is in the process of obtaining his USSF "C" License. We are hopeful to offer both boys and girls teams each season, but always assess options to put every student-athlete in the best possible development environment. If for example we are unable to field an entire boys team this season, we'd attempt to create a futsal league and allow the boys to practice alongside our girls (who have recently been one of the best teams in the state).

CLUB CONFLICT?

Jubilee teams hope to accommodate any player on campus who may be worried about club team conflicts. Though previous experience is NOT a requirement to tryout, players with competitive backgrounds provide sound leadership for the team. Players are absolutely allowed to participate with both their club and school teams. ‚Äč

The structure of our school season helps student-athletes avoid conflicts. There should never be a practice conflict since our school teams train from 3:30-5:00pm. School games are also during weeknights. So while an occasional club practice absence may be required to attend school games, there should not be any conflict with weekend club games.

Club coaches should value the school team experience and diverse "total player development" opportunity it provides. Especially since Jubilee soccer players will train with USSF licensed coaches from top teams in the area.

FORMAL TRYOUTS

Coaches will lead tryouts for both the boys and girls varsity teams on the dates shown. Student-athletes should arrive on time with proper attire and plenty of water. The first session will consist of conditioning and individual skill assessment. Session two will benchmark tactical awareness and conclude with small-sided games. Rosters (including team managers) will be posted on following tryouts with a parent meeting held thereafter.

TRYOUT RUBRIC

The following are basic guidelines that will help student-athletes benchmark their development prior to trying out for the school team. These are not necessarily hard requirements for making the roster, but they offer insight into the expectations of our varsity soccer players and the the playing environment in which they'll participate. The "preseason" and "additional" training referenced on this page are great resources to prepare student-athletes for both tryouts and the regular season. As with all Jubilee sports, student-athletes also MUST maintain above a 70% average in all classes.
  • 7 CLASSES W/ STRONG CHARACTER 
  • 8 MINUTE MILE W/O STOPPING
  • 9 CONE DRIBBLE W/ CONTROL
  • 10 STRAIGHT 1-TOUCH PASSES

ADDITIONAL TRAINING

Players invited to join the Jubilee soccer team will also gain access to supplemental training with licensed coaches leading advanced Division 2, Super 2, and Division 1 teams within Wells Branch Soccer Association (WBSA). These teams practice right across the street from campus shortly after Jubilee practices conclude.
