My name is Tod Silegy and I am the athletic director at South Meadow School. I am writing this letter if your son/ daughter is interested in trying out for a 2022 fall sport 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 volleyball, will start, Wednesday, August 31st, 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 4:10.
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.
All students trying out must bring with them at try outs the attached parent permission/emergency form. (Click here for form) An updated or current physical form must be sent to our nurse Trisha Harris before tryouts. Updated means that your son or daughter has had a 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. Please remember THAT UPDATED PHYSICAL FORM must be sent or emailed to the SMS nurse, Tricia Harris (firstname.lastname@example.org), before the first day of practice. The parent permission/emergency form must be handed to the respective coach on the first day of practice. Please do not wait until the last minute. You may download both forms on the SMS sports website.
Please direct any questions to me at 924-7105 ext. 1268. I will be out of my office until August.
