The school year is upon us as well as the beginning of our fall athletics. On Monday, August 24th we will begin with Dance and Volleyball Tryouts. Students are required to wear a mask when entering and exiting the building, they are encouraged to wear it while inside until they begin their workout. Our coaches will be wearing a mask the entire time as well, and if your student would like to wear it during tryouts that is fine also. Students will have their temperature taken and asked a series of questions related to Covid19 to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Students are asked to bring their own water bottles as well to tryouts as shared water stations are not operable at this time.

Please make sure you have uploaded a copy of your students physical into PlanetHS dated after 4/1/2020. If we do not have a copy of the physical your student will not be able to tryout. 

Victoria Ashare is our new dance coach and will be teaching 6th grade this year! Tryouts will begin on Monday at 4:00. Please see the attached flyer for more details regarding Dance tryouts. Please contact Coach Ashare if you have any questions at

Coach Gesell (7th) and Coach Everhart (8th) will be the coaches again for our volleyball teams. This year we will be holding separate tryouts for 7th and 8th grade teams to allow for better opportunities to social distance during tryouts. 7th tryouts will run from Monday, August 24 from 3:00-4:30, and 8th Grade tryouts will run from 4:30-6:00. Tryouts will run from Mon-Thur. Please contact Coach Gesell or Coach Everhart if you have any questions. 

More details about football and cheer will be coming soon!
