Announcements and Important Events
Hamilton 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Families,
We hope you are having an excellent summer. It has been fun to see all of the involvement in camps and workouts from our middle school athletes over the last couple months. The time and effort that has been put in is a testament to the commitment by both athletes and their parents. We are excited to see the fruits of their labor as we move towards the 2018-19 school year.
As a kickoff to the 2018-19 athletic year, we would like to invite all students and parents interested in participating in athletics during the school year to join us on Tuesday, August 14 at 7:00 p.m. in the Middle School West Gym. The meeting will aim to provide information as well as update students and parents on some new and exciting initiatives happening in Hamilton Athletics. Following the general meeting, those interested in fall sports (Boys and Girls Cross-Country, Boys Football, Boys Soccer, Girls Tennis, and Girls Volleyball) will break off and meet with coaches for their respective sports.
Some exciting news we have for you is the addition of Tennis as a Middle School sport in Hamilton. Tennis will be offered to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls in the fall, and boys in the spring and will compete against schools in the MKO Conference. More information on girls tennis in the fall will be shared on August 14.
Additionally, we will continue to offer participation for 6th grade students in individually competitive sports such as cross-country, swim and dive, wrestling, tennis and track.
We will address many questions at the meeting, but one thing that is time sensitive for fall sports is getting the necessary forms/payments turned in before the first day of practice/tryouts. Physical forms, and Handbook Acknowledgement forms can be found by clicking on the link or stopping by the High School or Middle School offices. Physical forms must have been completed after April 15, 2018 to be valid for this school year. The $30 insurance fee will also need to be turned in prior to practice/tryouts (more on this below).
We will be available on Tuesday, August 14 starting at 6:15 p.m. to collect these items. If you are in line prior to 6:45 p.m. we will help you prior to the meeting. If you are not in line by that time, we will gladly help you following the meeting. The office will NOT accept any insurance payments prior to 6:15 p.m. on August 14. If you are unable to attend the meeting, please feel free to stop by the office on Wednesday, August 15 or Thursday, August 16 between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Questions on the Physical Form, Insurance Fee, and Handbook Acknowledgement can be sent to Middle School Athletic Secretary, Kris Henrickson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As a reminder, Middle School football will begin on August 15. The start date for the rest of fall sports will be August 20.
