Fall practice/sports info

For WHS Athletes and Parents

Important Information:

  1. Practices for high school sports start in August. Some sports have limited numbers of participants and hold try-outs during the first few days of practice to determine the teams. If you miss the try-outs you will not have an opportunity to join the team later. Cuts are common on these teams as there are typically more athletes turning out than spaces on the teams.
  2. Athletes must pay fees and have all clearance paperwork on file in the athletic office prior to the first practice. Coaches are not authorized to collect paperwork or fees, or to determine if an athlete is cleared. Physicals must be current.
  3. Clearance forms can be downloaded and printed at home by going to the following address:
