SAVE THE DATE - mandatory event
Winter Athletic Info Night: The Kickoff
Meet our Winter Coaches
Coaches will go over their philosophies and review policies. This is an excellent opportunity for student-athletes and parents to meet their coaches. It is also a great venue to ask questions of the coach about the upcoming season and to meet other parents and players, learn about the season calendar, fundraiser, and any other events. These meetings are extremely informative and go a long way to making sure everyone is on the same page prior to the season starting. The evening will begin in the gymnasium with remarks and updates from the AD, Principal, Athletic Trainer, and often a guest speaker. Following that, teams will break off into individual rooms to meet the coaches. Please note that it is expected that AT LEAST one parent attend.
All student athletes and their parents are required to review the Athletic Handbook and sign the acknowledgement at the end. Athletes will not be able to participate in tryouts, practices or games until this form has been signed. You will be able to access the handbook and acknowledgement right here on Family ID.
