Any 6th, 7th, or 8th grader interested in playing field hockey, soccer, or running X-Country should sign up online and complete all the required paperwork. An updated physical within the past 2 years will also be needed to participate. If anyone has specific questions about athletics they can see Mr. Goan. If anyone has specific questions about the needed paperwork or how to access it, they can see or contact Mrs. Foye. Due to the very high heat index, Football practice will be canceled again this afternoon. All football players should go directly home.
Dear WMS Parents,
Thank you all for your patience as we try to streamline the athletic sign-up and participation paperwork. In the interest of making things easier for all, we have developed new online Athletic Participation Forms for sports sign-ups and all pertinent medical information and athletic expectations. This will make it easier for parents and students to get their required forms to us in a timely manner while also saving paper. Parents will need to click on the links below to access these online forms. Parents will fill out Form A and submit the form which will replace both the sign-up and the medical information form we have used in the past. The links to Form B, Form C and Form D will provide information regarding Code of Expectations, Athletic Eligibility and Concussion Information, etc.
After you have read through the information, you will need to click on the WMS Athletic Participation Release Form (Form E). This form must be printed, initialed, and signed by both the parent and the athlete. This form along with written proof of a recent physical (within 2 years) must be provided to the school BEFORE your child will be able to participate in any WMS sport throughout the year. This is required one time per school year only.
