Summer Try Outs!

If your son is trying out for summer basketball, they MUST be registered and cleared before they try out Memorial Day. Sports registration is now open. Players need to be registered by FRIDAY at 3:00pm. Players cannot try out without being completely cleared! Here is the link to the PDF with instructions to register for 18-19. This will also register your son for all sports next year at Union (assuming their physical is good through those time periods).

Please note that we MUST have an updated physical turned in to the office. If your son played sports last year in middle school, we have a copy of their physical that the middle school’s sent over. If you need to update it because it expired, then we must have the new copy in hand.

Here are some FAQ’s about the process –

This is all done through the online forms, coaches have nothing to do with this but Coach Conley has asked questions and received some answers. Your student MUST be eligible by this Friday, not Monday. There is no athletic secretary on the holiday so you must be eligible Friday afternoon by 3pm or they cannot try out, per district policy. Here are some clarifications about the process:

-You do NOT need to and actually cannot purchase an ASB card at this time. It is not needed to be eligible. Ignore that part completely.

-It will tell you to “Buy” things; this is just the odd language they decided to use, there is no buying anything, it just means you need to complete that online form. You pay nothing to try out.

-Many of your son’s physicals are still good, but please check on that. We were told that if a student played middle school sports, their physical was sent over. It never hurts to double check with the athletic office though. Coaches do not have access to these documents, it is all done through our athletic office.

-If a high school athlete played sports last year, they still must do this new process. When done, you won’t have to do this again for the next school year.

-There will be an informational meeting for current 9th-11th graders at Union during lunch in my room, 302. There is nothing that the 8th graders will miss, we are just going to remind students of tryouts next week.
