WRHS Athletics Department Policy on Social Media: Students are reminded to use good judgment in their use of all social media. The full Athletic Department policy on Social Networking and Media can be found here.
General Information Regarding Tryouts: All candidates for a WRHS sports team must register online to try out. As the sports seasons approach, people should connect to the individual season pages to find specific information for each sport, such as tryout times and locations.
Physical Examination: In addition to registering online, students must present a copy of a valid physical to the school nurse before the start of tryouts. Students should have a physical examination performed by their family doctor. A physical examination form should be filled out and signed by the doctor. For the Fall 2014 sports season, the Health Office will be open to collect and verify valid physical forms beginning Monday, Aug. 4, when summer Health Office hours of 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. begin. For students unable to see a family doctor, physicals will be offered at the WRHS Health Office on the following times/dates: 10 a.m. to noon, Tues., Aug. 12; and 6 to 8 p.m. Wed., Aug. 20. Students must sign up for WRHS physicals during the summer by calling the WRHS main number, 508-829-6771, ext. 0. An adult must accompany anyone under the age of 18. Physicals are valid 13 months to the day of the exam. It is the family's responsibility to ensure the physical is valid for the entire sports season. Students who do not have a valid physical on file will not be allowed to participate in tryouts/practices. Notes from doctors will not be accepted.
Students who do not register online and/or do not present a physical examination form to the school nurse will not be allowed to participate in tryouts/practice sessions.
