IN REGARD TO RETURNING PAPERWORK FOR THE FALL SEASON , WEEKENDING 7-8-16 WILL BE OUR ATHLETIC SECRETARIES LAST WEEK IN THE OFFICE UNTIL AUGUST 15TH, IF YOU CAN GET PAPERWORK IN BEFORE SHE LEAVES FOR THE SUMMER THAT WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA , THE WEEK OF AUGUST 15TH IS ONLY ONE WEEK PRIOR TO THE START OF THE FALL SEASON, I RECOMMEND NOT WAITING TO TURN IN PAPERWORK UNTIL THE 1ST DAY OF TRYOUTS JUST IN CASE SOMETHING IS NOT COMPLETE OR IS INCORRECT, ALL PAPERWORK MUST BE REVIEWED BY OUR AD THEN HE'LL PASS ALONG THE YELLOW EMERGENCY CARD TO ME , THAT TELLS ME YOU'RE ELIGIBLE TO TRYOUT. TOO MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS PEOPLE WAIT TO SCHEDULE THEIR PHYSICALS AND THEN CANNOT GET AN APPOINTMENT IN TIME FOR THE START OF TRYOUTS, PLEASE MAKE APPOINTMENTS NOW AND GET IT TAKEN CARE OF AHEAD OF TIME.

PLEASE READ THE PARAGRAPH BELOW, IT HAS TO DO WITH FALL TRYOUTS:

 

Head Coach:  Dave Morehouse, Ed McKnight
JV Coach:  Merrie Weeks
C-Team Coach: Robyn Williams

 

Captains: TBD

Tryouts begin Monday August 22nd 2016 from 3:45-6:15 pm , varsity practices will remain at that  thru the season, JV & C team practices will likely start and finish earlier, we'll confirm once we break down the teams, we will likely break down into teams after our Wednesday August 24th practice but we may need to extend decisions on the JV & C teams until the end of the week. Ten practices are required before any player is eligible to participate in a match. All paperwork should be returned to the Shorecrest athletic office prior to the first day of practice. Please remember that all paperwork must be returned to Lane Loland in the main office, if it comes to me in the gym the first day I'll have to send you to the office, please return it the week before so we can work thru any issues if needed. Paperwork packets will be available for pick up in the main office however the office is closed until August 15th. Please note that tryouts are a full 2 weeks before the start of school this year,  factor this in to your summer vacation schedules if you plan on playing. For those of you moving up from Kellogg or any other middle school, the high school seasons are a little bit different, once tryouts begin on the 24th the season continues uninterrupted until approx the end of October, there are no off days or holiday breaks (including Labor Day).
