Boys soccer tryouts moved; other DHS camps loom

From page B2 | August 02, 2013 | Leave Comment

As the calendar turns to August, preparations for another full season of Davis High fall athletics almost is underway.

While most returning athletes have been — or will be — informed by their sports’ respective coaches about forms, workouts and report dates, students new to DHS athletics will be interested to know the particulars for their sport of choice.

It’s with particular note that Blue Devil boys soccer coach Alex Park reminds his varsity and JV team hopefuls that tryouts have been changed to Nugget Fields off Pole Line Road in northeast Davis. District officials cite another water-line malfunction at Yudin Field as the reason for relocation.

Here’s a look at who reports when for what sport …

An Aug. 19 parents’ meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Arroyo.

Note: Baseline concussion screening is mandatory.

Consent forms for concussion baseline testing and forms for physicals can be found at
