Varsity and JV tryouts will begin Monday August 22nd.  Modified Football tryouts will begin Thursday August 25th and all other modified sports will begin on Monday August 29th. Attendance at practices is required in order for athletes to be properly trained for competition.  In each sport, a minimum number of practices is required by the state in order for an athlete to participate in games. For Varsity and JV teams, games will start before Labor Day.
