*Athletes will be rated on passing, serve receive, hitting, serving, and of course attitude, effort, and teamwork skills. Athletes will receive their scores at the end of try-outs day two. 
**At the end of Tuesday's try-outs, the athletes will be handed an envelope, that should be opened OUTSIDE in the car or at home, that will tell them if they made the team or not. IF they do make the team, a schedule will be included in the envelope. Please note, a parent meeting will be held Wednesday Aug. 5th at 7:30 in the junior high cafeteria for all the athletes who do make the team. 
ONE more important item: After checking in all the physical forms, the coach is still missing several from many athletes. Every athlete must have a current physical or they CANNOT try-out. Make sure to bring the physical Monday!!!

One dose of TDAP (tetanus, diphtheria, and acelluar perussis, adolescent and adult formulation) or TD (tetanus, and diphtheria, adult) vaccine was required prior to entry into Seventh grade. This dose is intended to be administered as booster dose for those students who have completed the required doses of the initial series of the Dtap/DT/Td vaccine. If your child already meets this requirement, please send the date and record in as soon as possible. This booster must be given by the first day of seventh grade or your child could be excluded from school. Please check with your physician or the local health department (740- 852-3065) to verify your child’s immunization status or to schedule an appointment for the booster. Thank you so much for your cooperation. Any questions or concerns may be addressed to me the District Nurse,
