WRHS 2016 Fall Sports Tryout Schedule
Online Registration: To participate in practices/tryouts, students must register online. Students who are not registered will not be allowed to participate. Activity fee payments will not be accepted until the conclusion of tryouts. Coaches will provide students with the deadline date for activity fees.
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. A copy of the physical should be handed directly to the school nurse. It is the responsibility of the family to ensure that a student has a valid physical on file. Physicals are valid for 13 months to the day of the exam. Students who do not have a valid physical on file will not be allowed to participate in tryouts or practices. Notes from doctors will not be accepted.
The Health Office will be open to collect and verify valid physicals beginning Monday, Aug. 1. Summer Health Office hours are 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
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. 9; and 6 to 8 p.m. Wed., Aug. 17.
