Dear West Laurens Middle School Athletes,
WLMS Athletes will begin practice for Fall Sports (Cheer, Cross-Country, Football, & Softball) on or around July 6, 2020. I have the head coaches for those sports listed below with their email addresses. Our coaches will publish practice/workout schedules in the coming weeks. Workout schedules will be posted on our school Facebook page and on our school website.
Athletes must have a physical to participate in any school sport. Any student that participated in a sport at WLMS last year, can start practice in early July, but they must satisfy this requirement no later than July 27, 2020. If students have never played a sport at WLMS, they must have a physical before they will be eligible to practice in early July.
In the past, the school has scheduled a date for student athletes to get physicals on campus. We do not know if or when we will be able to schedule physicals on our campus this Summer. If you play a Fall sport and intend to start practice in early July, please work with your personal physicians now to get an updated athletic physical. You may pickup a physical form in the WLMS office Monday-Thursday from 8:00 AM to 11:30 AM. You may also print an acceptable form from the address below;
Cheerleading: Mandy Hutto; email@example.com or Brooke Passmore; firstname.lastname@example.org
Cross-Country: Casey Dunn; email@example.com
Football: Vic Thigpen; firstname.lastname@example.org (upcoming 6th graders are not eligible for football)
Softball: Josh Carter; email@example.com
Please feel free to contact our coaches via email at anytime with your questions or concerns. Also, I have my contact information listed below and I will be more than willing to support you in any way I can. Contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 478-272-8452.
GO RAIDERS !!!
