    Freshman Boys soccer teams.

    Here in Jefferson County for some reason there are very few freshman boys soccer teams. Some schools go with JVs and the freshmen can play but there isn't many spots.

    Does anyone who follows boys soccer have any info on their Freshmen teams?

    Highlands boys and girls programs have had frosh teams for the last several years. Each team is made up largely of middle schoolers with some frosh mixed in. 7th grade boys are permitted to play however 7th grade girls are not permitted to play. Each team has a full roster of players.

    Boone County and Ryle both have Freshman teams.
    7th and 8th graders are allowed to play on these teams.

    There is a meeting tonite and many parents feel there will be no freshmen team next year at Male, kids will try out for JV's. I've decided to call on every school in a 40 mile radius and ask them their status for 9th grade soccer for boys. Indiania/Bullitt Cty/Hardin Cty/Meade Cty/Private schools in Jefferson Cty, don't tell me there are not enough teams...

    In Jefferson, I can think of X, T, Manual, Male---that's about it. Ballard did at one time, but their program dropped off for a few years. Eastern might? None of the Bullitt Co. schools do. Based on size, facilities, and numbers, I would imagine Collins probably has one. Maybe North and South Oldham?

    Thanks, CC, I forgot about the three Oldham schools, I know soccer is huge out there. I'll be calling schools soon and I'll post my findings.

    Rocks/X/Male/Manual/PRP/North Oldham/Oldham Cty/Brown/Jeffersonville will play with JVs/Butler if numbers are there/Moore if numbers are there/. Stll waiting on call backs from eight local schools. Not called were Lexinton schools. This wore me out...

    Ballard will have a team, DeSales if they have the numbers, Kentucky Country Day also will field a team.

    Brown??? They dont' even field a JV team typically. Also, Moore just started a HS program last year---they barely had enough to play then. Did you try Collegiate? I'm sure they will probably have one. They and KCD have had really strong MS programs for several years. I know I previously said Bullitts do not, but I do remember Bullitt East at least trying to field one at one time. CAL also could be a possibility.

    Collegiate at one time was real strong, my kid played goalie at Atherton and when they played them it was a tough match. I forgot about them, but wll call them, CAL said no I was surprised. The lady at Brown said "yes" and I repeated my question...so who knows? North/South Oldham said yes, Oldham Cty told me wait until their try outs on July 15th, but he said he could let some JVs play.

    Several schools I spoke with thanked me for my imput I gave to them about these findings. They made notes, some schools said it might be late before they would know...I love talking sports with these folks, its all about the kids as my son will not even be playing.
