Winter Sports Tryouts Information

With the trees now stripped of their leaves, the temperature becoming even more chilly, and the fall sports season coming to an end, it’s time for winter sports to start. Winter sports include: Boys basketball, Girls basketball, Swimming/Diving, and Wrestling.

With this new season rolling around, students need to start trying out for the sports they would like to participate in. Before trying out, however, there are a few steps that need to be completed before you try out.

“Before they try out for winter sports, they have to have a physical that is dated after May 1st or any incoming freshmen,” assistant athletic director Brett Schuster said. “Returning sophomores, juniors, and seniors, will use the one from last year.” Firstly, if you are a freshman or you didn’t participate in a sport last year, you MUST take a physical. If you DID participate in a sport last year, you do NOT have to take a physical.

Another requirement is filling out a participation packet. Participation packets can be found by typing in “participation packet” in the search tab on the LPS website and clicking on the first link or on the LSW website. You also need to fill out the student and parent consent forms at the bottom of the page.

Tryouts for winter sports are on November 16, 2020. Tryout times vary by sport. Stop by the athletic office or contact the of that sport for information on tryout times.

Good luck to all the students who are planning on participating in winter sports! Good luck, have fun, and go Hawks!!
