General Spring Sports Tryout Information

You must have a current and complete physical on file in order to tryout. If you are unsure if you have a physical on file, please check with the Athletic Office, or you can find the physical form here. Participation in any sport requires a $150 Athletic Fee. Specific sport tryout information is listed below.

Lacrosse Tryouts

 Tryouts will be Feb 15-16 from 4pm-6pm and Feb 17 from 8am-10am. Everyone is expected to be at all 3 days of tryouts. If the student is a winter sports athlete, special accommodations will be made for them (please contact me if this is the case). All players must have their own gear, we have a few extra sticks and goggles for those in need. Teams will be posted Saturday evening, the girls will be given a specific time before leaving tryouts on Saturday morning.

Tryouts will consist of multiple different drills assessing different skill sets.

There will also be a timed mile, timed 100 meter sprint, and timed 40 yard sprints.
