Welcome to one of the Miami Valley’s best soccer programs, which is making a name for itself and working to be a circled date on a calendar for the teams we play. The schedule below is a part of the ongoing training and player development to ensure we remain one of the top programs in the Miami Valley. In order to achieve the desired level of success, this program needs to have a strong level of commitment and dedication. Thank you in advance for the dedication to ensuring the continued success of the program.
OPEN FIELDS: Open Gyms/Fields will take place from 6 pm to 7:30 pm on Sunday nights at Fairmont Park unless otherwise noted. If they are to be cancelled for any reason this will be communicated through the Fairmont Athletic website, Twitter, Email, and a text message.
CAMP: This will take place the week of July 17th through July 20th. This camp will be led by the high school coaches and possibly some special guest coaches during the week. Camp will be held at the practice fields/stadium from 6 pm to 8 pm each night. Cost will remain $65 and registration is available on the Athletic Department Website.

WEIGHT LIFTING: Weight training will be Mon, Wed, and Fri from 10 am to 11 am at the Fairmont weight room next to the main gym, with some conditioning to take place after. Players should take this opportunity for fitness as well as strength training to improve all aspects of play.
CONDITIONING: Conditioning will take place from July 24th to July 28th from 6 pm to 8 pm. Requirements of conditioning (and we have access to the track this year) will be 2 miles in 14 mins, 10- to 120-yard sprints in under 18 secs, and 50 push-ups 50 sit ups within 90 secs. These are things to work for prior to coming to conditioning. Since it is June there is time to get up and get moving.
PRE-SEASON FRIENDLIES: While some might call these tournaments, they are more friendly pre-season games. Mason Pre-season will be an invite only and does not in any way determine the choosing of Varsity, the coaches will inform those selected. This is the weekend of July 14th through July 16th. We will also attend the Northmont preseason is the weekend of July 22nd and July 23rd. The coaches are placing two teams in this preseason event and will attempt to take as many players to this event as possible, but not everyone will be invited.
TRAINING DAY: We will have a training day the day before tryouts. This will take place on July 31st from 6pm to 8pm and will be a general training day to give the players some extra time with the ball before tryouts.
TRYOUTS: Tryouts for the 2017 Fairmont Men’s Soccer Team will take place August 1st from 6 pm to 8 pm and on August 2nd from 6 pm to 8 pm. Tryouts are mandatory and a player will need to be present in order to qualify for a team. Selection for the teams will be determined by the end of tryouts on August 2nd.
PRACTICE: Practice for both the Varsity and the Reserve team will start on August 3rd from 6 pm to 7:30 pm. This will be the time for practice unless otherwise notified.

Once again the work and effort which is put in at this time of the year can be the difference maker in regards to a winning season.
