Practice Schedules
Practice and Competition schedule PDF's can be found on the Athletics Overview page based on current season. You can find more up to date competition schedules and information here at WESCO Athletics

Activity Buses
A bus can take your child home after practice is over. This bus will drop them off at a stop close to their regular stop. Some sports encourage carpooling - check with your coach to see if this is offered. 

Late Paperwork
Students are still eligible to practice if their paperwork is turned in late, but can’t participate until everything is complete. Each team has a late paperwork cutoff day, typically about a week after starting if it is a non-cut sport. 
Note: A Physical is REQUIRED for any participation/play.

Cross Country, Volleyball, Softball, Basketball, Soccer, and Track: Eight (8) practices are required before an athlete is eligible to compete in a game.
