Hello Parents,

So that you aren’t surprised next Monday by your child yelling at you that they need a physical, I just wanted to let you know that winter sports are beginning next week.

Students must have submitted a CURRENT sports physical (completed by the doctor after May 1, 2019; which means that all physicals turned in for sports last school year are invalid). Physicals must be submitted to Becky Kigin, Athletic Trainer, either during all lunches in Town hall or after school in E-303 on November 6-8, or after school on 11/12 in Town Hall.

If your child has already submitted a packet (i.e. fall athletes), they must see Ms. Kigin during the above times to fill out their Tryout/clearance slip.

The packet can be downloaded from the Wakefield website: http://wakefield.apsva.us/wp-content/uploads/sites/37/2019/05/2019vhslphysicalpacket.pdf

Health/accident insurance is required for participation, and company and insurance number must be included on page 4.

All signatures on ALL pages are required.

If your child does not have a completed packet turned in, they will not be allowed to participate.

Names of students cleared for tryouts will be posted in Town Hall before lunch on Thurs and Fri so athletes will know if they have done what is necessary to attend tryouts.

Ms. Kigin will not be at school on 11/11 for basketball and wrestling tryouts, so we are requesting all kids to turn in their physicals/ get transferred from fall sports by 11/8.  If necessary Ms. Deskins will be there on 11/11 and students can turn them in, and Ms. Kigin will verify that everything is valid on 11/12.


Times for the FIRST day of tryouts are below: (see coaches for other days and times)
