Soccer Athletic Class Information

Anderson Boys Soccer Athletics Class


Head Coach:  Philip Reus 


          Phone number: 512- 841-1595


Varsity Assistant and Head JV Coach:  Chris Kuta

JV B Head Coach :  Bryant Deane


Description:  This is a competitive athletics class, not a P.E. class.  The 1st semester of this class is designed to get individual players ready to play as a team  for the upcoming season but, does not guarantee you a spot on the team;  everyone must go through open tryouts during the last week of November in order to be considered for placement on one of the teams.  The  2nd semester of this class is for the students that have made the JV “B”,  JV or Varsity team.  You MUST have a current physical and all related paperwork in by Sept. 1st,  2017.  You will not be allowed to stay in this class if you do not have a current physical. 


What you will need to bring to class everyday:  You will need a pair of  workout shorts, socks, running shoes or a cross trainer type shoe, soccer cleats and shin guards.  You will be issued a workout shirt when you have turned in your physical and related paperwork.  You must be dressed out in the appropriate workout attire in order to participate.  You will not wear watches or jewelry during workouts, it is a safety hazard. You will be issued a locker to keep your stuff in.  You are responsible for keeping a lock on it, we can issue you a lock if you do not have one.  Please do not leave your valuables unattended or unlocked.  In the event that you must be absent from the soccer class please call 512-841-1595 or email Coach Reus or Coach Kuta and explain why you will not be in class that day.


What to expect:  We will begin running and strength training next week as well as soccer skills. You will be expected to be dressed out and ready to workout at 8:55am.  Being in this class does not mean that you are automatically on the Anderson High School Soccer Team; open try-out will begin November 27th   and end on December 1th. These try-out workouts, as well as in season workout, will be held before school  (7:00 am-8: 30am). We will select players for a JV “B”, JV  and a Varsity squad at that time. Players that do not make the team will be moved to a P.E. class for the spring semester. 


End Result:  You will become a better athlete, better team player, better soccer player,  and learn some life lessons along the way.  Which will make the  Anderson Trojans Soccer teams  successful!


Off-season Workouts (August 28th to November 22nd ):  Cardiovascular conditioning, speed and agility, strength training and ball movement.


In-Season Workout (November 27th to April 19th): Cardiovascular conditioning, weigh training, soccer skill and game strategies.
