7th and 8th grade boys at Lanier are eligible to tryout for the Lanier MS soccer team.
Updated information about tryouts will be posted in October. In the meantime review the information below.

2021 Season Information
- Parents can't sit in the bleachers at the games. You'll be able to watch home games by sitting in the parking lot or standing on the sidewalk outside the fence.
- I will check with away game opponents to see if there will be a site from which parents can watch the games.
- All players will be able to dress out and attend home games, but playing time isn't guaranteed. I explained this to the boys at tryouts so they should understand.
- Playing time is earned each week based on performance.
- At the coaches meeting a few weeks ago, I was informed that only 16 players would be able to ride the bus to away games. These spots will be earned at each week.
- Afternoon practices will end by 5:45. Make plans to pick players up by that time.
- Morning practices will begin at 6:30.
