Arrowhead Boys Soccer: The 2020 Season Underway

Alex Stahl, Reporter

The 2020 Arrowhead Boys Soccer season kicked off with tryouts on Sunday, September 7th. Teams were announced a few days later. 

Covid-19 cut off spring sports last year, but sports are happening this year, under many regulations.

Coach Staus, teacher and soccer coach, going into his 21st season of coaching boys varsity soccer is “feeling good,” he says. 

“It is three weeks shorter, so it is going to go very fast. The games and weeks are going to go fast, quickly. We also will also have to be ready for any challenges [or] changes due to Covid-19,” he says.

Since Classic 8 came out with their spectator regulations, Arrowhead players are only allowed two passes per player. These passes can be given to anyone and do not have to be given the same two people throughout the season

The first game of the varsity season is at Arrowhead on Tuesday, September 15th at 6:30pm against New Berlin Eisenhower. JV plays the same team at 4:30pm.

All games this season will be live streamed to viewers who cannot go to the games in person, if you go to the Arrowhead Website, in the boys soccer section, there is a link to watch the games. And if everything goes to plan, State will start early November.

Coach Staus also said, “We do not have any tournaments and we only have one non conference game.  That is very unusual.  We are unsure of what the WIAA post season is going to look like too.” 

Kyle Staus, a current junior at Arrowhead and Coach Staus’s son, said, “I’m feeling good,  Classic 8 came out with a bunch of new policies. They will be different but the fact that we still have a season is a nice thing to help keep us going, but also to help stay safe. I’m just worried that if school goes virtual the season will end.” 

Enzo Bova, also a current junior at Arrowhead, has been playing soccer for about thirteen years. He says he is feeling excited to be going into a new season. He said, “I’m relieved that as of now, we are having a season. Even though it’s not the same with spectators and transportation with the team, I’m very excited to play with my classmates this year.” 

Coach Staus said, “As for the pandemic, everybody wants to have fall sports and we want a soccer season. We all have to do our part to make that happen.”
