Even though the deadline to sign up for Winter sports has already passed it doesn’t mean that it is too late to sign up. Mrs.Zurzola said, “Late sign ups are accepted, but make sure it is done ASAP.” In order to register check your or your parent’s email. There should be an email sent by the athletic office with a snapcode and a link. That link will send you to the registration website where you have to fill in your snapcode and information about yourself. Make sure to register as soon as possible.
After you register you have to get your yellow card from the athletic office. You can pick up your yellow card after November 19. If you have more than one F or do not have an up to date physical you can not get your yellow card until you give the athletic office your current physical or fix your grades.
The prices of the sports vary, with cheerleading and dance costing $60, and other sports like basketball, track & field, boy’s swim & dive and wrestling cost $80. Gymnastics cost $90 and hockey is $400 but can be $90 due to limits. More information about the price is available at the following link.
In terms of who can participate in what, there is a boys and girls basketball team, and though the swimming and diving team is listed as boys, girls may participate. Every other sport is co-ed, and according to Mrs.Zurzola, “There has never been a boy who participated in gymnastics, though it can happen”.
For hockey, depending on the number of people they could split up the teams into a varsity and JV. Also the equipment for hockey only includes the jersey and helmet, meaning the skates and stick must be provided by the player.
