The Ursuline Academy Bears will be back in action for the fall season on Thursday, August 23!
Fall team sports offered at Ursuline Academy include Cross Country, Field Hockey, Soccer, Swimming and Diving and Volleyball. Dance tryouts will take place after school starts and there will be information given out in school. Students in Grades 7 through 12 may try out for a sport. However, no 7th graders are allowed on a Varsity team if a Junior High level team is offered in that sport. A limited number of Juniors may be considered for a Junior Varsity team at the coaching staff’s discretion. Participation in a sport at any level previously, or attendance at any camp or clinic, does not guarantee a student a place on a team. In order to be considered for any team, a student should attend tryout sessions.
In order to participate in fall tryouts, all athletes must have previously passed the following paperwork in by August 1st, 2012 (items 2-3-4 should be turned in to the Athletic Director):
1. Documentation of a physical examination completed within the past 13 months and turned into the school nurse.
2. Emergency Medical Authorization form signed by a parent or guardian
3. Athletic Waiver form.
4. Handbook Certification form.
Forms can be downloaded from the Athletics page on UrsulineAcademy.net. Any athlete who needs an inhaler must have it with her. Parents/Guardians-please make every effort to have these forms in by August 1st, as it will cut down on the first day confusion.
