Boys Varsity Soccer
The boys soccer program values great team chemistry, a high level of commitment, and personal discipline. These are key ingredients for all of our players. Many of our student athletes go on to study and play soccer at top colleges and universities. Dignity and respect are core values, and sportsmanship and fair play take precedence over winning games. Winning is a by-product of proper conduct and preparation. A serious commitment to diversity is also a keystone of the Loomis boys soccer program.
