Detailed practice schedules will be passed out during the first track meeting along with the individual meets and the events that will be included in those meets. Parents are urged to pay close attention to each meet format, as not all events will occur each week.

Each student will be asked to demonstrate the fundamental volleyball skills of passing, setting, hitting, and serving. Coaches will also take into consideration a student's attitude, hustle, and leadership ability. All students will be given an equal opportunity to perform their skills and be evaluated by the coaching staff.


All Sports


Any student interested in football should contact Coach Sterling about being moved into Athletics. All forms must be completed and signed prior to tryouts or practice. Tryouts are held for basketball and volleyball. There are no tryouts for football or track.


The Athletic Department will provide all equipment except shoes (cleats), socks, and athletic supporters.


When bad weather does not allow us to practice outside, we will practice inside a gym. Athletes need to keep a pair of tennis shoes in their locker for this occasion (since cleats may not be worn on the gym floor).


This decision will be made late in the day, and the front office will be notified as soon as a decision has been made.
