All students who wish to participate in athletics for the 2022-2023 school year must be vaccinated against COVID-19. This means that the student has had two doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines. A copy of your vaccine card must be on file with the school nurse. If you have not yet provided a copy of your vaccine card, please email a copy to Mrs. Schmid ([email protected]) and the school nurse, Ms. Imperia ([email protected]). You may also bring your vaccine card to tryouts with you on August 22nd.
All students who wish to tryout for Volleyball or Cheer must have a valid physical on file with the school nurse. Physicals are valid for a period of 365 days. If you are unsure when you received your last physical, please email the nurse. If you need a physical before August 22nd, please be sure to make your appointment now as they are sometimes hard to get.
In order to tryout for a team, all service hours must be up to date. If you are a ninth grader, this does not apply to you. If you are entering tenth grade, Mrs. Schmid must have 35 hours of service recorded on your behalf. If you are entering eleventh grade, Mrs. Schmid must have 70 hours of service recorded on your behalf. If you are entering twelfth grade, Mrs. Schmid must have 100 hours of service recorded on your behalf. If you have hours that you have not submitted, please send to Mrs. Schmid before August 22nd.
Students must be PRESENT for tryout day or days and available for practice each day during the two weeks before school begins. Volleyball games begin the week of September 12th and continue until the end of October. Being a member of a team is a commitment. Students must be available for practice four to five days per week. There are sometimes matches on weekends. A schedule will be distributed to those who make the team. Students who are unable to attend practices or games will be removed from the team.
Participation in athletics helps students in so many ways. Being a high school athlete helps students develop self-discipline, motivation and leadership skills that they will need to succeed not only on the court but in life. We encourage you to tryout for one of our teams - information about other teams will be distributed later in the school year.
