Try-Out Info:

Mandatory try-outs will be Monday, August 2nd, and Tuesday, August 3rd.

NO EXCEPTIONS!  You MUST attend the first day and may be invited back to return the following days.

Try-out times:  7th grade 9:00 – 11:00 AM

                                  8th grade 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

  • Teams will be created based on skill, attitude, coachability, discipline, communication, teamwork, and a strong work ethic; NO ONE is assumed a position on the team prior to try-outs.
  • Please wear proper attire: gym shorts, t-shirt (with a number on back if possible), socks, and supportive tennis or volleyball shoes.  Kneepads are recommended, but not required.
  • Please do NOT wear jewelry or shoes other than tennis or volleyball shoes
  • Bring plenty of water to drink during breaks
  • Required paperwork MUST be completed prior to the first day of try-outs, which can be found online at https://osms.olentangy.k12.oh.us/athletics/about-sms-athletics/student-athlete-forms
  • The Physician signed physical is the only paper form that will be turned in to Shanahan’s office.  Everything else should be completed in Final Forms.
  • Practice (mandatory) for those who make the teams will begin Wednesday, August 4th.

IMPORTANT: Making the team requires commitment, hard work, and dedication.  Therefore, ALL practices are mandatory (except in emergency situations).  PLEASE schedule family trips and vacations prior to try-outs and practices, as it is important and most beneficial to each player and the teams as a whole to have everyone at every practice.
