Soccer is a Winter Sport. The season begins in November and playoffs are concluded in February. Tryouts are usually in the first week of November, but for many returning team members, practice never ends. Many players get together informally during the summer months to train and prepare for the season.

The Soccer program is built on a strong foundation of excellence. State Championship victories in 2000 and 2001 have brought the program to the pinnacle of the sport. Numerous playoff appearances have kept Brother Martin Soccer in the spotlight. Many All-District and All-State Athletes have grown with the program and have gone on to play on the next level.

There are four divisions: Junior High (Grades 7th and 8th), 9th Grade, Junior Varsity (Grades 10th and 11th), and Varsity (Grades 9th – 12th). Games and Tournaments are held throughout the week.
