Welcome to the Roosevelt High School boys soccer website!
Boys soccer is a spring sport. The 2015 season will start with conditioning (probably twice weekly after school) led by Coach Gary Hunter and informal practices led by the team captains in December, followed by tryouts probably taking place the week of March 2, 2015. (The earliest first practice is set by WIAA and is March 2, 2015 http://www.wiaa.com) There are three teams — a JVC team, JV team and Varsity team. The season will end in late May, and conference games will be played during Spring Break (the week of April 13th), so please plan accordingly.
If your son is interested in playing for one of the teams in 2015, look for announcements of the schedule starting in December and tryouts in early March – they will be posted in the daily bulletin as well as on this website.
You can find out more about how the RHS team works by reading prior posts on this blog or visiting the FAQ page.
If you ever have trouble remembering how to get to this page, you can simply Google or Bing “RHS mens soccer”, and it will come up as the first hit.
Soccer season is over for 2014, but the start of summer gives the team a great opportunity to raise some money for next year’s season with a co-ed soccer camp for younger players June 23-26. So spread the word!
The camp is offered to 2nd through 7th grade boys and girls for four days during the first week of summer vacation, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the RHS soccer field. Our boys will be instrumental in the running of the camp, and in turn they’ll be raising money for next year’s program.
For campers, it’s a great deal — just $47 for four days of soccer. Each player will work with the RHS coaching staff and RHS players. They’ll be instructed on technique in attacking, defending and goalkeeping skills, with mini games to end each session. The players will get to see how a high school team is coached, and they’ll get to work with the older kids in the RHS program, which is always fun for younger players.
The camp has a maximum of 75 players, so spread the word and encourage parents to sign up early.
Here’s a link to the updated Summer Camp RHS flyer. Interested campers should fill out the paperwork and mail to Coach Hunter, c/o RHS, 1410 N.E. 65th, Seattle, Wa 98155.

Roosevelt is playing Garfield at this hour at Memorial Stadium.
The Varsity Riders played a terrific game in the pelting rain Tuesday night, coming from an 0-2 deficit to beat Newport 4-2. The team never game up, even after an own goal near the end of the first half made it a very difficult struggle to get back on top.
Next up is a match against Garfield at Memorial Stadium on Friday.
The Varsity team had some important wins over spring break, improving its overall record. On Monday, RHS beat Eastlake 1-0, and on Wednesday defeated Woodinville 2-1. Saturday’s non-conference match against Sealth was a 2-2 draw.
The Riders are now in 6th place in the 11-team conference, with a 3-4 record. There are three conference games left to go — including an April 25 game against Garfield (#4 in the conference) and May 1 game against Ballard (#5).
