basketball tryouts 

Although our poor conditions seem to be unwavering, we will hold basketball tryouts on Friday 11/16. The first scheduled games are on 11/26. If your child has a health condition that makes them unable to tryout, they must be present at tryouts with a signed parent note to be considered for a team. However, this does not guarantee them a spot on the team, or another tryout. Also, consent forms are required for all trying out. If the student has not turned in a consent form (available in the office), they will not make a team.

Teams will be posted on Monday morning outside the gym. If your child makes the team, the student and a parent must be present at our Sport Night that Monday 11/19 at 6:30.

Tryout Times
8th Grade Girls: 3:30-5:00
8th Grade Boys: 4:45-6:30
7th Grade Girls: 6:15-7:45
7th Grade Boys: 7:30-9:00.

The overlapping time for tryouts is for checking in/putting on numbers.



Incoming 6th grade parents are welcome to sign up for a tour for ONE session below. Tours are for parents/guardians only. Please do not bring 5th graders, or siblings of any age. Please arrange for childcare prior to the tour, as children may not be left unattended in the front office. 5th graders will have opportunities later in the year to visit the campus prior to school starting in the Fall.
