What Do I Need to Know About Middle School Athletics?

 

  • In order to try-out for any sport, all athletes must have a current physical (on a PWCS Middle School physical form) and a current concussion training prior to the start of try-outs.
    • On August 28, 2017 at Saunders, Sport Physicals will be offered by
      • Family Medicine of Lake Ridge at a cost of $27 beginning at 6:30 p.m.
    • Face-to-face concussion training is provided four times throughout the school year, one training prior to each season. Late entry to concussion training is strictly prohibited. Both the student and parent/guardian must attend the same concussion training session. A list of all middle school concussion training dates are available on the county website (www.pwcs.edu) under Parents , Health & Safety. (Physical and Concussion training forms are available here as well.) Please be seated in the cafeteria by 6:30  p.m..
    • Students only need to submit one physical form and one concussion training form per school year; SY 2017 to 2018 must be dated after May 1, 2017.
      • Parents are encouraged to make a copy of their child’s sports physical and keep it at home.
    • Effective April 1, 2016, physical and concussion training forms will not be accepted the day of the try-outs, regardless of what was done in the past. Physical and concussion forms may only be handed into the Athletic Director (Brent Anderson), Principal (Dr. Sheila Huckestein), or the Assistant Principals (Steve Webb and Joe Murgo). Please do not attempt to turn in forms to the front office or your coaches.
  • Activity buses run every day for the first 15 days of the fall season, and then three days a week throughout the rest of the school year. Buses leave Saunders Tuesday and Thursday at 5 p.m. and Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.. If your ride is not here by bus dismissal, your child is expected to take the activity bus home.
  • Buses are provided to and from every away athletic event during the school year. Students are expected to ride the bus to away games, however, they may ride home with a parent/guardian if signed out. Athletes may not ride home with non-parent/guardian per PWCS policy until they arrive back at Saunders Middle School.
  • Cost for attending games is for Adults is $3.00 and $1.00 for Kids.
  • Students must be present at school for at least a half day AND must dress-out for P.E. in order to participate in after school athletics.
