McCulloch Bears fall athletics: Want to play?

Fall athletics are fast approaching for the 2013-14 school year! If you are interested in participating in sports at McCulloch Junior High School, there are several things you need to be aware of:

1. Prospective student-athletes will be held accountable as STUDENTS FIRST. Representing Marion schools in a sport at McCulloch Junior High School is a privilege and reward earned by academic success, student citizenship, and positive behaviors both in and out of the classroom.

2. Any student wishing to participate in sports MUST have a PRE-PARTICIPATION PHYSICAL EVALUATION FORM on file with the athletic director BEFORE he or she can try out or participate in any capacity for an athletic team. There will be no exceptions made, so please remember to turn your form in as soon as possible. (To view/print the physical form, click here.)

3. The projected start dates for fall sports are as follows. (All practices and tryouts will begin after the school year has started. If a date listed below needs to be changed, it will be moved later, not earlier. Listen for announcements during the school day regarding any changes.)

Start date: Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013, at 3:45 p.m. at the football field.

Tryouts: Monday, Aug. 19, 2013, at 3:45 p.m. in the New Gym

Start date: Monday, Aug. 19, 2013, at 3:45 p.m. in the Old Gym.

DON’T FORGET: You must have a completed physical form turned in BEFORE tryouts or practices!
