SMS Fall 2018 Sports Try Out Information

June 19, 2018

Dear Parents,

My name is Tod Silegy and I am the athletic director at South Meadow School.  Try out dates for boys white and blue team soccer, girls soccer, girls field hockey, boys and girls cross country, and girls club volleyball, will start August 30th, right after school.  All athletes should report to the gym to meet their respective coach.

Try out times for all fall sports will be from 2:30 to 4:00. A SMS Sport Try Out reminder will go out early August in the Peterborough Transcript/Ledger.   

All students trying out for teams will be done with practice and off the field,course,court, by 4:05.  Students may go home on the late bus, walk home, or be collected by their parents in the Back upper parking lot. Please do not pick up your child out front due to bus confusion.  Please collect your child no later than 4:15.

Students in grades six, seven, and eight, are eligible to play field hockey, soccer, and club volleyball. Students in  grades fifth, sixth, seventh, and eight are eligible to run cross country.  Any student who is going into eighth grade next year that received a D- or lower, or a 5 in conduct or effort their last quarter as a seventh grader, is ineligible to try out.  Any student who is going into grade seven gets a clean academic slate in regard to eligibility.

All students trying out must bring with them at try outs the attached parent permission form and an updated pre-participation physical evaluation.  Updated means that your son or daughter has had a updated physical within the last two years.  For example:  If you son/daughter had a physical as a sixth grader he/she would need an updated physical as an eighth grader.  THE UPDATED PHYSICAL MUST BE COMPLETED BEFORE THE FIRST GAME, BUT PREFERABLY BEFORE  YOUR SON/DAUGHTER  TRYS OUT.  Please do not wait until the last minute. 

Please direct any questions to me at 924-7105  ext. 1268.

Sincerely yours,

Tod Silegy
