Top of Form

Colgan HS Swim and Dive Tryout Information 2018-19

 

Winter Tryouts Begin:  Monday, November 5, 2018.  Your name MUST be on the tryout roster BEFORE you show up on tryout day.

 

Sports Physical & Concussion Certificate

To get your name on the tryout roster, a current Sports Physical and Concussion Certificate must be on file with the Athletic Office by Friday, November 2nd.  Please give your forms to Coach Misencik or Mrs. Layne (Athletic Secretary in the Front Office).

 

Concussion Training

Colgan's Face-To-Face Concussion Training will take place on Wednesday, November 7.  Unfortunately, this date is AFTER tryouts begin on November 5, so you will need to go to another high school prior to November 5.  Please go to this site to view the Concussion Schedule for other High Schools.  https://tinyurl.com/ydhmxrk8   Please be prompt so you don't get locked out.  ALL Freshmen, and students new to PWCS, must attend one High School Face-To-Face session during their High School career. You may attend Concussion Training at any PWCS High School.  If you already attended a High School Face-To-Face session, you need to take the Online Concussion Training, print a certificate, and have a parent sign it.
