    SCPS Middle School Athletics’ gives any student an opportunity to try out for the sport of the student athlete’s choice, per season.  Due to many parameters, not every student will make the team.  Please remember, there is only one team; 6th, 7th and 8th graders are all trying out together; all except for Football (7th and 8th graders only).

     It is my advice to any student interested in trying out for any team:

    1. Get out and get active; conditioning the body for the sport
    2. Individual skill development: camps and clinics: find them and get to them.

     Try out Info:

    1. Dates are listed above
    2. Times: 3:00 to 5:00 pm 
    3. Pick up PROMPTLY by 5:15 (No BUSES)
    4. Pick up is in the MAIN parking lot. (second ramp area: outside the gym)
    5. Tryouts are closed to parents.  Thank you.
