The physical education teachers will let students know when it is time to tryout for each sport. You will not be allowed to tryout without a physical, so please make an appointment to get one early in the year. All team uniforms are provided by the school. They need to be returned at the end of each season. If you lose a uniform, you will need to pay for it. Practice is usually every day after school. Practices and games can sometimes go until 5:30pm, so parents need to be aware of this when their child makes a team. Individual coaches will let parents know the time and place of practices and games. Students travel by muni to games. They are dismissed when the games and practices are over and must have their own way of getting home. All students are responsible for any make up work they need to do as a result of leaving school early for games. If a student is not doing well in the classroom, the administration and athletic director can make the decision to take them off a team.
If you would like further information on our after school sports program, please contact Mr. Reed (Athletic Director) at (415) 841-8910
