2018-2019 WRHS Winter Sports Tryouts

Winter Sports registration is now open: All candidates for a WRHS sports team must register online to try out. To access Online Winter Sports Registration, click here.

All candidates must turn in a valid physical examination form to the school nurse. The MIAA requires physical exams every 13 months to the day of the exam. Students are responsible for ensuring their physical is valid for the duration of the season. The student's proof of a physical exam should be completed by the family's physician. This Physical Examination Form may be used if the doctor does not provide his own form.

Students who do not register online and/or do not present a physical examination form to their coaches will not be allowed to participate in tryouts/practice sessions.

NO ONLINE REGISTRATION + NO PHYSICAL = NO TRYOUT

Payment of Athletic Fee: Parents should pay their child's athletic fee through our online payment center. The winter sports payment is due after final cuts are made and the student is selected for a team.
