    What you need to know before tryouts

    • All Athletic participants  must have completed and turned in a WMS Athletic Registration Packet, including a sports specific physical examination to the Athletic Coordinator by the specified Deadline no exceptions . Baskets have been placed on the counter in the main office, for completed packets.  Physicals are good for two years, so returning athletes should check with the Athletic Coordinator to see if they have a current one on file.
    • Players should wear appropriate gym shoes and athletic clothing and should bring their own water bottle.
    • Players will be evaluated based on skill, sportsmanship, attitude, effort, coachability, and commitment.  Coaches will be trying to put the most competitive team on the court. Players who make the team are expected to attend all practices and games for the duration of the season and are expected to support their teammates regardless of their own playing time.
    • No Player is guaranteed a spot on varsity or junior varsity, regardless of his/her team assignment from the previous year.
    • Players must attend all tryout sessions that they are scheduled to attend. Cuts will occur after each session and the final team selection will occur at the end of the last day.
    Tryouts are closed and held for players who want to play.  Family and friends may not be in the gym during tryouts. No exceptions
