Dear T-D Families,
The turnout for sports this year has been absolutely fantastic, so much so that certain teams will need to have athletes moved to the practice team. Please know that all sports are open to grades 5-12. Members of the practice team are just as important as the members of each varsity team. Practice team members will participate in all practices, receive practice apparel, and will be featured in the team photo as well as invited to the Lions Athletic Banquet. The only difference between the practice team and varsity team is that practice team athletes will not compete in games. All 5th and 6th grade boys participating in soccer will automatically be placed on the practice team as they are not allowed to play in full contact sports until 7th grade.
Tryouts for both Boys and Girls Basketball will be held on 11/17/14, 11/18/14, 11/19/14, and 11/20/14. Tryouts will be held at T-D from 3:15-4:15 pm for all interested students in grades 7-12. The final rosters will be posted on 11/21/14 in front of the Admissions Office. Students must be picked up no later than 4:20 pm or that student will be asked not to return to tryouts.
Students must bring their own water bottle, proper basketball sneakers, and a t-shirt and shorts. Students are also asked to bring a sweatshirt and sweat pants as students will be required to go outside on certain days. Along with bringing the required equipment, students must also have a completed Liability Form and Athletic History Form on file with Mr. Schlitten as well as a current Physical Exam dated 3/2/2014 or later on file with the Nurse’s office. Students may not tryout if they do not have these forms completed. The forms will be available starting 11/5/14 from Mr. Schlitten. Boys who were on the soccer team are still required to submit a new Liability and Athletic History Form.
Athletes that make the team will be required to bring $250 or $500 on 11/24/14. Those athletes on the tuition payment plan can pay $250, with the balance distributed evenly across the next five tuition payments. Students who are not on the tuition payment plan must pay in full. Team athletes will receive an adult size practice t-shirt and shorts. Please list your athlete’s clothes size on the top of the Liability Form. More t-shirts and shorts can be ordered off the school’s website under the Apparel tab in the Athletics Section.
All Home games are played at Anshe Sholom Synagogue 50 North Avenue New Rochelle, NY 10801
