 It’s hard to believe it’s time to begin thinking about the new school year, but August is right around the corner which is the beginning of our fall sports season!  Please read the following information in its entirety.    We do not want to turn away any student athlete as a result of missing paperwork or miscommunication.

 The following sports are offered in the fall:   girls’ volleyball, girls’ and boys’ soccer, girls’ and boys’ cross country, and football.  Information for football will come under a separate email.

 Tryouts for teams are mandatory for all students including returning players.  All students should report to the Renehan Lobby (the lobby closest to the chapel), 30 minutes prior to the start of their tryout and check in with the Athletic Trainer.  The tryout dates, times and locations are below:

Cross Country – Head Coach, David Tenney, dtenney@pallottihs.org

 Boys – Monday, August 13, 3:30-5:00 pm

Girls – Wednesday, August 15, 3:30-5:00 pm

  Once you are cleared by the trainer, please report to Supplee Lane Recreation Area (16904 Supplee Ln, Laurel, MD 20707.) Runners should come prepared to run a 1-mile time trial as well as additional running after that. Bring water, running shoes, and a wrist watch with a stopwatch function on it.

 Please note: Cross Country will not begin running a daily bus from Pallotti to Supplee until 8/27 (the day of New Student Orientation).

 Boys’ Soccer – Head Coach, Steve Shurman, sshurman@pallottihs.org

 August 13, 3:00-5:00pm at McCullough Field.  Players should wear cleats and bring tennis shoes in the event they need to move indoors.  Players should bring a large water bottle.

 Girls’ Soccer – Head Coach, Maceo Rojas, mrojas@pallottihs.org

 August 15, 16 & 17, 4:00-6:00pm – McCullough Field.  Players should wear cleats and shin guards and bring tennis shoes in the event they need to move indoors.  Players should bring a large water bottle.

 Girls’ Volleyball – Head Coach, Tamara Leslie, tleslie@pallottihs.org

 August 16 & 17, 4:00-6:00pm – Pallotti Gymnasium.  Players are required to wear tennis shoes and bring water. 

 Students will be unable to participate unless they check in with the Athletic Trainer prior to tryouts to submit all required paperwork and fees.  The following link is to Rank One Sports to set up an account and submit paper work: https://stvincentpallotti.rankonesport.com/New/Home.aspx.  Athletes who have asthma must have their inhaler with them.

 There is a $50.00 athletic fee for any athlete playing a sport.  The athletic fee supplements the athletic budget to help with the rising costs of bus transportation, officials and field rentals.  The athletic fee is capped at $100.00 per year, per family.  This fee is due at check in.

 Please feel free to contact the coach or Athletic Director if you have any questions. 

 Girls’ Athletic Director – Lee Ann Elman, lelman@pallottihs.org

 Boys’ Athletic Director – Patrick Courtemanche, pcourtemanche@pallottihs.org.

  Please encourage your child to be either attending the summer workouts with the teams or to be doing some physical activity several times during the week.  August is HOT, and any physical exercise your child does on their own time will help them acclimate to the heat and perform better during tryouts. 

  We are excited to get the fall season started, and hope you enjoy the rest of these summer weeks enjoying time with friends and family.

Please make sure your son/daughter’s physical, health inventory and consent and waiver form has been submitted prior to check in or that he/she has their paperwork with them at check in. 

The $50.00 athletic fee will also be collected at this time.  Please make checks payable to SVPHS and note the student’s name and sport on the memo line of the check. 

University of  Maryland Faculty Physicians Inc. in Columbia, Md. will be offering sports physicals on July 29 and August 5 from 9:00am to noon.  NO APPOINTMENTS NECESSARY.  Cost is $20.00.  Bring your physical paperwork with you.
