Procedure for WMS Sport Tryouts

All athletes trying out for a WMS sports team will be asked to sign in on the first day of tryouts, indicating their full names and grade level. Each athlete trying out will be assigned a number. Coaches will evaluate all athletes by their assigned numbers. Athletes invited to the 2nd or 3rd day of tryouts will see their numbers posted outside of the cafeteria on the bulletin board labeled "sports". Final rosters will also be posted on the bulletin board outside of the cafeteria. Picked teams or final rosters will reflect the assigned number of the athlete and not their name.

Sports Physical Forms

The VHSL Physical Form can be used for middle school sports. It contains the physical and athletic participation agreement in one convenient packet.

Yorktown High School Sports:

If your 8th grader wishes to tryout for a sport at Yorktown the VHSL Physical from MUST be filled out completely.

Please visit the Yorktown site to find more information about Yorktown Sports.

School Accident Insurance

APS provides an opportunity to purchase student accident insurance. Medical bills for injuries that happen on school grounds or at school–sponsored events are the parents’ responsibility. If you do not have medical insurance and believe that payment will be a hardship for you, APS provides the opportunity for you to purchase school accident insurance. It is highly recommended that parents consider using this as a secondary insurance for their student athlete.

Markel Insurance will provide school accident insurance for the 2014-15 school year. It may be purchased online (click below).
