Team Roster: (updated on April 27 at 7:30pm)

Thank you to all players who participated in the tryouts for our first ever Boys Junior Soccer Team. It was exceptional to see such talented and respectful young men, and it took much thought and deliberation to make the 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 hard work and dedication of all players inside the classroom and out on the soccer pitch was excellent. It made it very difficult to select the final roster. Our junior team did so amazing at the St. John Paul II Big Brothers Big Sisters Charity Tournament on April 15th that SJPII will be putting forward two teams for the St. Joan of Arc Megan's Walk (Terminal Cancer) Charity Tournament on April 29th and April 30th!

The following 18 players will participate as members of St. John Paul II Team Gold and St. John Paul II Team Blue. This team has been selected based on the fact that all of these players played together over the course of the season. Teams will be announced at JOFA, so all players are to be there for 3:35pm at the latest.

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