FAQS

When are tryouts?  Tryouts begin on the first practice day allowed by the WIAA (WA Interscholastic Activities Association) for the season.  In 2024, the first day of spring sport tryouts is Monday, February 26.

What should I be doing in the pre-season?

1.  If you're new to Ingraham soccer and haven't already given your contact info to the coach Corey McNamee  or Captain Miguel Willkens , please make sure that they know you are interested in playing and plan to try out.

2.  Attend Captains' Training Sessions -   There is an Instagram page for Men's Soccer (@ihsmensssoccer).

3.  Players and parents, please continue to check this website and the Men's Soccer pages every now and then for new info and announcements.

4. Get a physical, if needed to complete your sports paperwork. Players are required to have a physical every 24 months before they can attend tryouts. The sports physical form is available in the office or online through Seattle Public Schools website.  The form, signed by your doctor, becomes part of the spring sports paperwork to be turned in before tryouts. You can also arrange to get a free physical at  Ingraham's Teen Health Center. If you are unsure if your physical is current, you can check on The Source or if unable to access The Source, ask Maria Medina in the Main Office if you need to update your physical..

5. Keep your grades up!  Players are required to have at least a 2.0 GPA to participate and grades are checked before every game.  It is no fun for you or your teammates if you can’t play because you let your grades slip.

How many teams are there?  The plan is for there to be 3 teams: Varsity, Junior Varsity, JVC.  Players will know which team they are on by the end of tryouts. The number of teams will be based on how many players try out.  

Are there cuts?  Maybe, and maybe not.  It is hard to say without knowing how many players tryout.

When and where are practices?  High school sports are five days a week (occasionally six) so when you don’t have a game, you have a practice.  Practices are after school at Ingraham.

Who and where do we play?  IHS competes in the Metro 3A league. There are 16 Metro schools. For soccer, the teams are divided into the Metro and Sound divisions, each consisting of 8 teams.  We play each team in the league once. Generally, the JV plays the same team but at home when varsity is away and vice versa. Varsity home games are at Ingraham Stadium, JV home games are at Ingraham fields north. The JVC teams have a unique schedule because not all schools have a JVC team to play.

What is the post-season schedule?  Only the varsity team has play-offs, with games beginning the week that the regular season ends. Brackets are posted on the Metro League site at the time.

When does the season end? The season ends early-May. If varsity qualifies for post-season play, training and games may continue for another 2-3 weeks.

Is transportation to games provided?  The district provides budget for some transportation. With this year’s change in school start times, bus schedules are a bit haywire.  Once the game schedule is out, the coaches work with the Athletic Director to figure out transportation.  It is almost a certainty that there will not be a bus available for JV and JVC teams.  Once teams are formed, parent volunteers act will need to coordinate  carpools.  (Not saying it’s great, it’s just how it is.)

Snacks/Meals?  Please send your players with some  protein, carb food to keep them running.

How much does it cost?  Besides getting the ASB card, (ASB = Associated Student Body), which is $50 in 2024, there will be team fees to cover socks and that players will keep.  We seek to provide scholarships for players who need support. All players have to buy socks to wear.

METRO LEAGUE SCHEDULES POSTED FOR VARSITY & JV

The schedules are posted on the Metro League site.

JVC schedules come out after tryouts, when the district knows how many schools have a JVC team.

You can subscribe to the Metro League site for any changes or updates to the existing schedule, barring any "day of" weather-related issues. However, communication from the site isn't entirely reliable. Get a message sometimes. Other times, nothing.
