Get a jump start on the 2022-2023 paperwork! We will be excited to start back up soon and get Athletics kicked off. Football, Cheer, and Softball start right off the bat.

Please remember: ALL COMPLETED PAPERWORK MUST BE TURNED IN THE FRIDAY BEFORE TRYOUTS OR DATE STATED BY COACH. NO EXCEPTIONS!
COVID Protocols
Please be flexible during this time. We are still keeping the best interest of athletes in mind at all times and as of right now ALL athletes will not be required to have a mask on in the locker rooms and on buses at all times as they are optional at this time.  As protocols change within the county, ours will as well. This goes for student athletes, and anyone in attendance at any school event. We will update any changes as soon as possible. Athletes will need water bottles for water at practices. NO coolers will be used during games.
