RHS Soccer Camp Registration Available

This summer will be a great opportunity to raise some money for next year’s season with a co-ed soccer camp for younger players June 23-25 from 10-2 p.m. So spread the word!

The camp is offered for boys and girls ages 7-11 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 $58 for three 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.
Interested campers should fill out the paperwork and mail it with a check payable to “RHS Boys Soccer” to Julia Jones at the address listed on the form.
 Registration forms are available here:Roosevelt Soccer Camp Registration 2015!
For more information contact Julia Jones at or Ngaire Taylor at

Battle vs the Defending 3A Champions


The JV team continued their unbeaten  streak by defeating Lakeside 2-1 on March 19th at a game played at Magnuson Park, our home field for 2015.


The Varsity team lost an intense 3-0 battle against Lakeside on March 19th. The score did not reflect the strength of the performance put forward by Roosevelt, and the  match up against Lakeside on April 30th at Roosevelt will undoubtedly end in a much more favorable result for the Roughriders.

Parent Meeting Recap

Thank you for all those who attended the parent meeting regarding our 2015 soccer season. For those who were unable to attend, please be aware that the team fees this year are $120. Please provide a check for this amount to our team booster representative, Jim Lyle. His email is Check should be made payable to Roosevelt Athletic Boosters. One hundred percent of this money goes to the RHS soccer program. The team fees go toward the cost of uniforms, soccer balls, senior night gifts, and other team expenses. The Seattle School District pays a very small fraction of the program costs. Additionally, we have had some large expenses recently regarding uniform purchases. For example, JVC received a new kit last year. This year, the Varsity team receive new kits. Speaking of uniforms, Coach Gary urged players not to use bleach when washing uniforms. Please also turn the jerseys inside out when drying them in the dryer.

Volunteer Positions Needed:
Coach Gary would like to encourage the creation of a fundraising committee. We also are looking for a fundraising summer camp committee. Additional volunteer posts include photographer, host a team dinner, score reporters for the games (so scores can be posted on the website), and we are also looking for people willing to donate hydration such as water, Gatorade, and chocolate milk, and people willing to donate protein bars.

If you are willing to volunteer in any of these capacities, please contact me at so I can update our volunteer contact page and we can begin communicating about how we can make 2015 a great soccer season.
