Athletic Packets:

Anyone interested in playing baseball this spring, go by Room 800 and purchase your athletic packet for just $20.  Every year players need to get a new physical and must fill out the packet completely.  Players must have insurance before trying out in the spring.  If you do not have insurance, there is an application for insurance in your athletic packet that will cover you during the school day and in after school sports.  Turn the completed packets in to Coach Pletsch ASAP, I would like ALL of the packets turned into me no later than October 15th, that way we can start focusing on just baseball.


All packets have to be turned into Coach Pletsch before intramurals begin on February 9th.  Try outs are on February 27th, stay tuned for more announcements.
