to face the toughest non-conference schedule possible in and out of state, including
having played recent teams: St. Viator, Waubonsie Valley, Lyons Township, Sandburg,
Lincoln-Way East, Hinsdale Central, New Trier, Springfield, Glenwood Chatham, Madison
West, and Madison Edgewood.
The Team Beyond Soccer
The entire staff is committed to making the program the most successful one it can
be. We are also committed to helping your daughters become successful, not
only in soccer, but all aspects of their everyday lives. We have the opportunity
to interact with them on a daily basis and like to think of ourselves as an extended
family, looking out for your daughter's best interests when you cannot be there.
Values, camaraderie and responsibility are some of the other things we teach, and
hope they will carry these lessons on after their four years at Saint Ignatius.
We are pleased with the progress the program has made on the field, but we realize
that there is much to learn outside the realm of the soccer pitch. Along with
the games we play during the season, we also stress the importance of training and
nutrition. In terms of training, we have worked extensively on such diverse
conditioning methods as weight training (strength, endurance), speed and agility,
core balance, and cardiovascular endurance.
Both levels will have games and practices over the break. Therefore, we will continue
with our policy (approved by the athletic department and school administration)
regarding absences during this time. In short, we will not excuse any absence from
practice due to family vacations. We strongly urge that every player attend every
practice. The policy is explained further in the team rules section. During spring
break, players will be required to attend double session practices.
