Montclair High School Soccer Boys' Booster Club

Welcome to the Fall 2020 Season

Welcome to the 2020 Season! Below is some important information to note as the coaches and players look to start pre-season practices September 14th.


The coaching staff for the 2020 season is shown below. Every one of the coaches played for the high school. It is a sign of their connection and commitment to the program that they are back leading our boys.

  • Toure Weaver - Varsity head coach and overall program head coach
  • Jon Chiles - Varsity assistant coach
  • Oliver Murphy - Varsity assistant coach 
  • Stephen Moore - Junior Varsity head coach
  • John Moore - Freshmen head coach

How we communicate: We have multiple communication vehicles to get out basic info to parents as well as to create some enthusiasm about the accomplishments of our players and the teams.

Important dates: the detailed calendar is posted on the Calendar tab or can be viewed by team by clicking on the individual team tabs. Some key dates:

  • September 14th - start of pre-season
  • September 17th - first cuts
  • September 20th and 21st - final cuts and team formation
  • September 26th - scrimmages for all teams vs Elizabeth
  • September 27th - Coaches' meeting with parents (will be virtual, details to follow)
  • October 1st - start of regular season games

Volunteer opportunities: There are a number of ways parents can join in. Most require no more than an hour a week of activity. If you are interested in any of the roles below, reach out and let us know nowWe recognize it may be early to ask for volunteers as the teams are not yet formed but we will come back starting September 22nd with a second request once the teams are formed. Roles that have been filled are not shown. 

  • JV liaison - send emails related to the JV team, coordinate with the team coach on info he wants sent, coordinate pasta parties, miscellaneous other activities
  • Freshmen liaison - same responsibilities for freshmen team
  • Hosting pasta parties night before games - we will revisit the wisdom of doing this as the season gets closer but for now we plan on each team hosting their own pasta party the night before each game at an outdoor space that can accommodate social distancing. Hosts provide a couple of trays of pasta, salads, drinks. Team liaisons will secure the hosts and communicate venue details.
  • Banquet coordinator (if we have one) - partially filled, looking for 1-2 additional volunteers
  • Program book for banquet
  • Banquet video
  • Game photography - If there are parent volunteers who are skilled photographers and would be interested in doing this, please let us know ASAP.  
  • Game video coordinator - If there are any parent volunteers who are skilled videographers and who would be interested in shooting game video for those who cannot attend the games, please let us know ASAP.  
  • Future executive board members - The current board is either senior parents or alumni parents. We are looking for volunteers who can step into these roles next year and as many years into the future as possible.

How we raise money: Asking for money is not fun but it is necessary. Our big fundraisers are below. We will send out more info once the teams have been formed:

  • Merchandise sales - COMPLETE
  • Car wash - date to be scheduled
  • Booster club dues - will be gathered via SportsEngine after teams have been finalized
  • General donations - will be gathered via a fundraising site
  • Banquet fees
  • Ad sales in the yearbook

Fall 2020 Season - Phase 1 Training

First game of the season is scheduled for October 1st versus MKA, followed by 10 more games against (always) strong Essex County schools. See the calendar for dates/opponents.

Notice for Incoming Freshmen and New Players

Incoming freshmen and new players: we are compiling our boys' soccer parent email lists for the upcoming season. If you want to be added, please send an email to the booster club email: montclairhighboyssoccer@gmail.com. Include your player's name and any parent/caregiver email addresses where you wish to receive messages. We do not need player email addresses, players will get information directly from the coaching staff.

Senior Boys' Fundraiser in Support of Racial Justice

A group of our senior boys is conducting a fundraiser for the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund (LDF). They have selected the LDF as a recipient of their fundraising efforts because it is a national organization with the strength and resources to make a meaningful impact in the daily struggle for racial justice. Funds raised for the LDF go towards various litigation, advocacy, and educational racial justice initiatives. 

If you want to support their efforts, donate via their GoFundMe fundraiser - see the link below. Money goes directly to the LDF (via PayPal who will extract a transaction fee on top of your donation) and is tax deductible.
