Welcome to Middle School Soccer 2017-2018!
Soccer is a city-wide, co-ed sport, involving both boys and girls from Barker and Krueger Middle Schools. The coaches are Mike Ramsey and Erin Frever, both of whom are teachers at Barker.
The season is now underway. We play in a league in Merrillville. All boys games will be played on Wednesdays at Merrillville High School starting at 5:30 p.m.. All girls games will be played on Thursdays at Merrillville High School starting at 5:30 p.m. Please note that there are fees for entry: $4 for adults, $2 for students, and $10 for families. The games are played on several fields behind Merrillville High School - there is plenty of parking near the football and baseball fields.
Note: the boys game during week 4 will be on TUESDAY, May 8 rather than Wednesday, May 9. This is due to a scheduling conflict at Merrillville High School.
The bus will leave for games at 4:15 p.m. There will be an activity bus available to transport Krueger students to Barker on game days. Players may stay at Barker between the end of the school day and the time the bus leaves. This includes Krueger students who take the activity bus to Barker. Students also have the option of going home at the end of the school day in time to get the bus (no later than 4:05 p.m.) However, they may not be in and out of the building. If they are in the building, they are the coaches' responsibility. If they choose to leave at the end of the school day and return for the bus, they are not the coaches' responsibility until they arrive at Barker to get the bus.
KRUEGER STUDENTS WHO RIDE THE ACTIVITY BUS TO BARKER FOR PRACTICES OR GAMES MAY NOT LEAVE THE BARKER PREMISES UNTIL THE TIME COMES FOR THEM TO BE PICKED UP. They may not leave to go to McDonald's, Wendy's, etc., unless picked up by a parent and the parent notifies the coaches.
Based on previous experience, the bus will return to Barker between 7:30 and 8:00. Please be on time to pick up your student.
