2019 FALL SPORT REGISTRATION/ INITIAL TRYOUT INFORMATION (TENTATIVE)

**Dates/locations subject to change**

Students will become eligible to participate in Interscholastic Athletics if they have:

1. registered online with the Athletic Department;

· All athletes must complete the online registration process. Students and parents/guardians will be sent a Sports InfoSnap Registration Code in July. The registration portal will close August 28th. NO INCOMPLETE REGISTRATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED.

2. a valid physical on file with the school;

· To participate in CT High School Athletics CIAC guidelines requires that a current physical must be on file with the school. If you have already registered for a sport, your most recent physical date will be noted in InfoSnap along with the expiration date. Physicals are valid for 13 months. A copy of any recent physical should be brought to the Athletic Department when submitting payment and picking up the yellow card (see dates below). DO NOT mail it in advance. A blank copy of the sports physical form can be found on the athletic department’s website.

3. paid the participation fee;

· We accept online payment via Credit Card or eCheck (both have a 3.49% non-refundable service charge), cash or checks (no service charge) made payable to WPS ESCROW. Payments made by cash or check should be brought in when picking up your yellow card. DO NOT mail it in advance. If you do NOT make the team you tried out for, you may transfer to a sport that doesn't make cuts or pick up your refund in the Athletic Office. No refunds will be issued once the regular season begins.

4. been issued a “yellow card”;

Once the online registration is complete, students will still need to visit the Athletic Office in person, prior to the first day of tryouts/practice, to verify or submit an active physical form (if needed) and to provide pay-to-participate fees (if you didn’t pay online). The Athletic Department will then issue a "yellow card" indicating the student is cleared to participate in tryouts.

DO NOT MAIL ANY FORMS/PAYMENTS TO THE SCHOOL!

You must bring your "yellow card" with you to your first day of tryouts/practice or your athlete will not be able to participate. This verifies to the coach that you are eligible to participate and serves as the emergency information sheet each coach is required to have.

TRYOUT DATES:

Fall sports (other than Football and Cross Country) will officially start on Thursday, August 29th, however, consult with the head coach via email for specific tryout dates (email addresses are on our website). Dates, times and locations of tryouts will be posted on the "Weekly Practice Schedule" tab on the WHS Athletic website.

ALL ATHLETES MUST COMPLETE THE ENTIRE REGISTRATION PROCESS NOTED ABOVE PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF PRACTICE/TRYOUTS AND ALL ATHLETES ARE EXPECTED TO BE AT ALL TRYOUT DATE/TIMES.
