Girls' Thirds Soccer
The growth in the popularity of soccer at Taft has meant the formation of three teams. Comprising of Varsity, Junior Varsity and Thirds levels, the Taft Girls’ Soccer program emphasizes player development and maturation. Taft believes heartily in the upward movement of its Thirds members to contribute at the JV and possible Varsity levels.
The learning of basic soccer technique, rules, positions, and systems of play in an organized soccer setting are the cornerstones of the Thirds goals for learning. Although its members play every game to win, there is an emphasis on equality of opportunity to improve. Teammates share game minutes almost evenly to ensure that everyone improves in game situations.
Although some may choose to pursue other interests, it is a mission of the Thirds team to prepare girls to tryout and be impact players on the JV team the next fall.
