The fall sports season at Yellow Springs High School starts soon and opportunities for recreational play abound. See the practice schedule information below and contact Athletic Director Steve Rossi to join a fall sport at 513-608-8980.

SOCCER: FC Springs Travel Team
Open try-outs for a boys’ U-14 (under 14 yrs. of age by July 31, 2011) are being held Monday & Wednesday, August 15 and 17 from 5:30 to 6:30pm at Gaunt Park. Interested players should be on time, wear cleats & shinguards, and bring lots of water and a #5 ball (if you have one)!

FC Springs is a competitive traveling team and will play 8-10 games (about 1/week, with half played in Yellow Springs) beginning Thursday, August 25.
Ideally team members play both parts of the fall/spring season, however players may participate in fall only if other commitments exist. There is a $90 registration fee for fall to pay for referees and to defray the cost of uniforms, equipment, and field maintenance needs. Call Coach Bill Hardman at 767-8433, or e-mail hardmansoccer {at} sbcglobal(.)net for more information.
