FITNESS TESTS AND REQUIREMENTS

To quote a UNC Women’s Soccer player:

“Fitness isn’t just our friend, it is our best friend.”

 

To win a state championship in high school soccer, a team’s fitness MUST be at a VERY high level.  With that in mind, to succeed at Niceville High School on the girls’ Soccer team, your fitness level must be very high.  The following are fitness levels that must be met before the first game to play at Niceville:

 Anaerobic tests are required and must be accomplished as stated.

AND

40s (ten 40s – 7 second sprint, 20 second jog to return/rest) VARSITY

40s (ten 40s – 8 second sprint, 20 second jog to return/rest) JV
