On March 21, Boys Home will kick off the spring soccer season. The team is led by Head Coach Marie Mason and Assistant Coaches Jason Bush and Chris Doyle. Student Bryson Rhoades will play the role of team manager. Head Coach Mason states, “I am looking forward to the spring soccer season. We have a young team with a lot of talent. I think it will be an exciting season.” In addition, Assistant Coach Doyle states, “I want our players to understand that there is nothing better than being on a team and a part of something bigger than yourself. I am looking forward to seeing our players grow together, work hard, overcome obstacles and celebrate our successes.”

In addition to the coaches and team manager, game captains will vary throughout the season. The opportunity will allow multiple players to serve in a leadership role.

Athletics at Boys Home serve as an excellent way for our students to develop physically, mentally and socially. Please join us to cheer on the team at the first home game on Thursday, March 21 at 5:30 p.m. against Craig County High School.
