Eighth graders invited to play co-ed football
The first day of practice for 8th grade co-ed football will be Monday, Aug. 18, from 3 to 5:30 p.m. at James Williams Middle School (JWMS) auditorium. Eighth graders who attend Zion Lutheran, Rhinelander Catholic and JWMS are invited to participate.
A physical is required for anyone who did not participate in a WIAA sport last year or who has not had a physical in two years. Anyone who did get a physical last year only needs to have an alternate year card filled out. A completed student participation form, insurance and medical emergency card, and school fee for participating in the sport are also required.
All the paperwork may be picked up at the junior high school office prior to the start of the season. Parents will need to attend a parents’ participation meeting once during their children’s junior high sports careers. Parents who have not attended yet are asked to contact the middle school to set up an appointment to watch a video presentation.
Students are asked to wear shorts and a T-shirt to the first practice, and to bring rubber spikes if they have them.
For any further information, please contact the middle school office at 715-365-9522 or coach Mike Prom at 715-369-2500.
