Teams Anticipated

1, 2 or all 3 of the following, to be determined by tryouts:

  • High School girls team (Varsity or JV). 
  • High School co-ed team (Varsity or JV) - competing in the Boys division. 
  • Middle School co-ed team - competing in the Boys division.

In order for the anticipated teams to form, a minimum of 14 student athletes is needed per team, and each team will need a coach.

 

Anticipated Practice Information

  • High School teams practice up to 3 days a week. (JV teams practice up to 4.5 hours a week, and Varsity teams practice up to 6 hours a week.) Middle School teams practice up to 3 hours a week (1.5 hours per practice).
  • Two teams might share a field for practice.
  • Practices will likely be from 5:00-7:00 PM Tuesday, Thursday, and Fridays, starting on Thursday, January 20th.

 

Competition

  • Meridian participates in the Texas Charter School Academic and Athletic League (TCSAAL). All competitions will be through the league. Middle School, JV and Varsity teams will have up to 8 regular season games with the opportunity to advance to playoffs. Middle School and Varsity teams can advance as far as the State Championship. JV teams can advance as far as the Regional Championship. Advancement in the post-season must be earned.
  • The league provides fields for Meridian's soccer games, and although they aim to schedule our home games near Round Rock, we often play home games as far away as Manor, depending on field availability. Away games can be anywhere in Central Texas. Regionals are often in the Wimberley area.
  • Games can be any evening of the week and on Saturdays. Teams usually have two games a week. Games start the week of January 31 and can continue through April 9, if advancement in the post-season continues to be earned.

 

Fees

  • $35 Registration/Processing Fee. The Registration fee is only refundable if the team did not form due to insufficient registration, or if the student tries out and is not offered a spot on any team.
  • Participation Fee

    • JV = $375
    • Varsity = $435
