To prospective Greenport Boys Soccer Players,
I hope you are enjoying your summer!  Although the start of the school year is still a month away, the fall sports season will soon begin, which means it’s time to start thinking
and planning for the upcoming 2019 soccer season.  As a prospective member of the Greenport Boys Soccer Program, you are receiving this letter to inform you of the upcoming preseason
practice schedule and what you will need to do in order to be eligible to participate.

This year the fall season will start on Monday August 26 th . You will find the preseason dates and times below for all interested players. Each player will need to have a fully completed athletic
contract with all signatures (parent, nurse and player) in place.  This includes a valid athletic physical and a valid impact (concussion) test. No player will be eligible to practice without
a completed athletic contract that has already been processed by the school nurse and the Athletic Office. In addition, no player will be eligible to practice without a current impact test.
**Completed athletic contracts with a valid physical must be handed in to the school nurse no later than August 19th in order to be eligible for the first day of practice.

Athletic contracts can be found in the Main Office, Athletic Office or at http://gpoathletics.weebly.com under forms.  Athletes entering into 9 th and 11 th grade will need an updated
impact test. Any player participating for the first time will also need to take the impact test.

**Physicals will be given at school by the school doctor on August 1st and August 22nd at 8:00 AM. No appointment necessary, just show up.
**Impact tests will be given on August 19th and August 26th from 8:00 – 10:00 AM in the 3rd floor computer lab.
