Winter Sports 2022 Tryout Information

The winter sports seasons are quickly approaching! If your student plans to participate in athletics this winter, below are some important dates that you will want to add to your calendar. The official start date set by FHSAA for winter sports varies for each sport. You can review the dates and times below for the sport(s) your student is interested in participating.

In the winter season, we offer Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball, Girls’ Competitive Cheerleading, Boys’ and Girls’ Soccer, Girls’ Weightlifting, and Boys’ Wrestling. We will be having our mandatory parent meeting for all teams and levels on Monday, November 7th from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.

Please remember that in order to try out for an athletic team or do any sport training activities, students must be registered on FamilyID and have a current physical on file.
