Online Training - (Should be open to all after July 17th)

This web-based training is now available online.

Please complete the training and print the certificate that is emailed to you. The certificate must be turned into Mr. Riccardella. This website has a history of being busy as it gets closer to tryouts dates. Do not delay getting this training completed. You must watch all of the videos and answer the questions. Fast-forwarding through the videos will cause the system to delay and might lock you out of the website.


Process for Tryouts

On try out days, students should report to the gymnasium immediately after school.  They will be checked in to ensure they have submitted their Sports Physical and Concussion Training documentation, and will then change into their athletic wear in the locker rooms.  Tryouts will conclude at 4:45 and students should be picked up from the school at 5 pm.  Cuts will be finalized after the 3rd day of tryouts.

A student on academic probation is prohibited from participation in athletics or other extracurricular activities, except to engage in academic help sessions.
