Cretin-Derham Hall Boys Soccer program consists of five teams: Varsity, Junior Varsity, B Squad, and two Ninth Grade teams. The Parent/Athlete Meeting for Mens Soccer is Monday, August 5th, 2013 at 6pm in the Field house, and the season begins Monday, August 12. The varsity season is 12 weeks in length playing 2 to 3 games per week. JV, B and 9th grade season is 10 weeks in length with 2-3 games per week.
Ninth graders are responsible for paying $15 for their uniform top and wearing black shorts to games. Shin guards and cleats are individually purchased by each player prior to tryouts. The only fee for varsity, JV and B squad players is to purchase socks. The varsity team must purchase purple and white socks. Each pair of socks are $8. It is optional for JV and B Squad to purchase these socks. The same socks from last year will be used, so if you purchased socks in the past you may use them again. Socks will be available when uniforms are distributed. Checks should be payable to CDH for sock purchases.
