All families involved in Eagles Soccer Program are vital to the boys’ development as student-athletes. It is our staff’s goal to continue to build up our entire soccer program and provide educational and competitive experiences for the students of all grade levels. As varsity coach at Totino-Grace I am excited about and committed to creating an environment where students come together to work toward a goal greater than themselves. There are many opportunities at Totino-Grace for students to develop and share their gifts. The boys soccer program affords those students who make the team a setting where they can dedicate themselves to teamwork, competition, and enjoyment as a result of working hard. Each soccer team in our program has high expectations for students—academically, socially, athletically and spiritually.
Due to the nature of high school athletics and the number of interested participants, rosters will be limited. As varsity coach it is my intention to choose the best players for each level. With the exception of the freshmen team there will may be cuts based on soccer talent and skill, commitment to the team, and work ethic. The boys’ coaching staff takes full responsibility for the decisions made regarding team selection and playing time.
Code of Conduct and Expectations
The MSHSL Athletic Eligibility Form along with the TG behavior contract specifically articulate the standards to which all boys soccer players will be held.
Soccer at the high school level is competitive, educational and meant to be enjoyed. Behavior that does not reflect this understanding is unacceptable. All coaches, players, referees, parents, and fans are reminded to honor the game of soccer and the dignity of all persons involved in the playing of the game at all times.
Head Coach Bill Vance
Coach Bill Vance was the Totino-Grace C-Squad coach in 1999, B-Squad in 2000, JV in 2001 and has been Boys' Varsity Head Coach since 2002. Since 2002 the varsity team earned five conference championships, eight section championships and three state championships. Every year the goal is the same: conference, section, state championships. 2017 was the first team in the history of the school to accomplish that goal. Numerous student-athletes from the TG Boys Soccer Program have earned all-conference and all-state honors and a select few have been recognized as All-Americans from the Eagles soccer program. In addition to numerous collegiate soccer players, the Eagles Soccer Program is most proud of the amazing men that are now fondly remembering the Eagles soccer memories while striving to make a difference in the world. The hope of the coaching staff is to help young men learn about themselves, others, and life through the sport of soccer. Since 2002 the Eagles have earned 221 wins, 79 losses and 24 draws.
