TRYOUTS: Students who are unable to participate in summer practices/tryouts will need to tryout when the season of sport begins; class schedule will be rearranged if they make the team at that time.
SUMMER PRACTICES: Most teams will hold summer practices/tryouts, though all sports are required to have a 3-week “dead” period during the summer. This is a good time to make vacation plans. Summer practices are not mandatory but are highly recommended and help us coordinate your initial course schedule. Fall Sports have priority during summer if times conflict.
