Basketball Tryouts

Dear Basketball Applicant and Parents,

 

The coaching staff would like to take this opportunity to express our enthusiasm for the upcoming basketball season.  Spanish Fort Middle School has incredibly talented students and we look forward to nurturing their maturation as athletes and leaders in our school and community.  We hope that the 2020 basketball tryouts will be a positive experience for all involved.

Students will be selected for participation after an open tryout period.  There will be a separate 7th and 8th grade boys team.  Once the season gets started, the 8th grade teams will play two games per week.  The 7th grade teams will also play two games per week over the course of a split season.  The 7th grade girls will play the first half of the season (11/02 – 12/03) and the 7th grade boys will play the second half of the season (12/07 – 01/21).  These approximate dates are subject to change if additional games are added to our schedule.  Practices will be held after school at Spanish Fort Middle School.  A complete practice and game schedule will be discussed at the Pre-Tryout Parent Meeting and is also available under the Forms and Calendar links on the Boys Basketball webpage at spanishfortmiddle.com.  Please note the following important dates concerning tryouts:
