SJPII Boys Junior Soccer Coaches 

Team Roster: (updated on February 25 at 12:00am)

Thank you to all players who participated in the tryouts for our Boys Junior Soccer Team. It was exceptional to see such talented and respectful young men, and it took much thought and deliberation to make selections. Throughout the tryouts, players have participated in a variety of sessions and assessments designed to test their physical, mental, technical, tactical, and social capabilities. We truly hope that the experience was worthwhile to all who took part!

The following 13 players will participate as members of St. John Paul II Juniors FC 2017:

GK: Francesco C (Grade 5)
GK: Damir S (Grade 5)
DF: Nicholas Z (Grade 6)
DF: Nicholas F (Grade 5)
DF: Aidan F (Grade 5)
MF: Marko C (Grade 5)
MF: Matthew P (Grade 5)
MF: Daniel K (Grade 5)
MF: Joshua A (Grade 5)
MF: Alex DV (Grade 6)

MF: Chris V (Grade 5)
ST: Felipe C (Grade 5)
ST: Jason K (Grade 6)

Please note that all players MUST represent the team in a positive manner at all times. Coaches will be speaking to teachers on an ongoing basis, so poor behaviour will result in a player forfeiting their roster spot this season.

Coach Matthew is now returning to Queen's University in Kingston until April. Team practices and meetings will start immediately when he is back in Oakville. For those who have been selected to be part of the historic soccer tradition consisting of many honourable athletes, welcome to our SJPII family! You should receive a welcome message through RemindApp on February 26 about the season if you have been selected.

 rosters have been selected based on a combination of skill, effort, professionalism, and attitude. If you have not been selected, please continue to work hard and we look forward to working with you again soon. All players are invited to attend practices and meetings to learn team strategies, and continue their development both within and outside of the classroom. We strongly encourage this. Congratulations to all players and on behalf of the coaches, best of luck. 

Team Roster: (updated on February 24 at 11:00am)

Thank you to all players for participating in our 2017 Junior Team Soccer Tryouts!
The coaches were impressed by the attitude, effort, skill, and professionalism of all players.

We hope that you enjoyed the experience and learned many new things from one another.
Our sessions revolved around challenging players in a fun and competitive environment.

The coaches are currently working on the roster and will be posting an update on February 25 by 12:00pm.
Coaches have spent many hours reviewing our notes and discussing players. There will be many tough decisions.

If you do not make the team, we encourage you to work hard and attend our open practices.
It has been an absolute pleasure to see such an amazing group of young men this week.

I have been coaching at SJPII for 6 years now and every year I am inspired to return because of people like you.
I look forward to seeing you all on the pitch, in the crowd, or in the school when I return in a few weeks.

As our Rock Story says, "Don't give up until you find your rock with the 1 million dollar bill on the back".

Best Regards,
Coach Matthew Aslett
