Next school year, Dickinson High will add boys and girls soccer as a sport for the first time ever.
Starting in the fall of 2019, the boys will play a JV schedule. In the spring of 2020, the girls will play a JV Schedule.
After those seasons, the school will decide if they want to play at the varsity level the following year.
“We’ve been exploring it and visiting with the Dickinson Soccer club for three, four, five years and communicating with them to see if the numbers were right,” Dickinson Public Schools Athletic Director Guy Fridley said. “If the numbers could fit for us to provide a team at Dickinson High School. We felt the time was right.”
Right now, Dickinson has not selected a coach for either team.
They expect to play their matches at Hagen field, which is the former junior high.
