Important Dates

What a great Season!


Note from Coach Shulkin:
Welcome to the 2022 high school soccer season. 

You may have heard, Bothell High School boys soccer has a new coach. I’m excited to get the opportunity to introduce myself to you all and tell you a bit more about my background/experience, plans, expectations, and ambitions for the program, this year and beyond.

I’m planning to hold a preseason Zoom meeting  to provide some information about tryouts and the upcoming season for registered players and parents. Thursday February 24 at 5:00 pm is the date of the zoom meeting, you should have been notified by final forms, if not please email me.  Please make sure you’re registered in Final Forms to receive the meeting invite. 

Tryouts will begin on Monday, February 28th from 5:30 to 7:30 at Pop Keeney and will go for at least two, more likely three nights in a row at that same time/location. Plan on regular training to begin the following evening.  

Key things you should be doing to get ready for tryouts:

1.     Eligibility - Don’t assume, check and make sure you’re all green in Final Forms BY 2/28. If you’re not registered, go here:

2.     Fitness – It’s your responsibility to show up for tryouts in the best shape possible. Tryouts will consist of a lot of short-sided play, so your fitness level will be evident and have a significant impact on how well you’re able to show.

3.     Touches – Be sure you’re getting out as often as you can, even if by yourself, with a soccer ball for technical work. Especially if you’re not on a club team that’s playing right now, prepare yourself to come to tryouts as sharp as possible.

If you have any questions or would like to contact me prior to tryouts for any reason you’re welcome to do so. My email and phone contact info are on this page and you can contact me at any time.

I’m excited to meet all of you and get this new season and new era in Bothell High School soccer going. Together we’re going to raise the bar, heighten expectations, and work hard to bring this program to new levels. Get ready, it’s going to be fun to see how fast and far we can go.

Go Cougs!

Coach Jim Shulkin
