Additional tryout information

Every student  must attend all days of tryouts to be considered for the team. Exceptions will only be made due to an illness or family emergency.  A family emergency is an event/activity that could not otherwise be rescheduled.  Examples are funeral, family member surgery, etc.  In the event that a student  was a member of the team the prior year and cannot attend tryouts due to the illness or family emergency, the coach/team sponsor may judge them on their performance from the prior season or request a separate tryout.  In the case of a new student to the program or a 5th grader who cannot attend tryouts due to the aforementioned reasons, a separate tryout must be arranged at the coach’s/team sponsor’s  discretion. Vacations are not a reason to miss tryouts; therefore, in order for families to plan events around tryouts, the tryout dates will be disseminated/shared/posted, 9-12 months in advance and on the district website. All students are required to have successfully completed a physical and that physical must be turned in to the school prior to trying out for a sports team. In the event a student does not have their physical they are still required to attend the first day of tryouts and observe. The athlete will NOT be given an extra day. In the event the student does not have their physical by the second day of tryouts, they will not be eligible to tryout. In addition to be eligible to tryout for an SMS sports program, a student must hold a passing grade point average.

Tryouts are closed to the public.
