Director's Memo: Sports are a time commitment
Updated for the spring 2018 sports season
Sports are a time commitment.

If you are participating in a varsity, JV or modified (grades 7-8) sport, please keep in mind that you are making a commitment to your team and that sport. To be fair, each player must make the commitment to be present at each practice and contest throughout the season before tryouts begin. This weighs heavily on the decisions made by coaches when they determine their rosters. A schedule is given at the beginning of each team’s season and is also available before tryouts upon request.
