Sports Tryout Process
In order to tryout for any athletic team, a student must meet the following eligibility requirements:
1) Complete a valid VHSL physical form for the current school year and turn it in to the Activities Office prior to the first day of try-outs. The six-page form can be found under the "FILES & LINKS" section on this website, at the top of the page beneath the Yorktown main banner. The doctor's portion of the physical must be dated after May 1 for the current school year.
2) The student must have passed five credit bearing courses during the preceding semester and currently be enrolled in five credit bearing courses.
3) 8th graders may tryout for those sports which are not offered at the middle school level and are sub-varsity (i.e., freshmen level or junior varsity level). These sports include crew, football, field hockey, volleyball, cross country, baseball, softball and lacrosse. 8th graders wishing to participate must live in the Yorktown school boundaries and attend Arlington Public Schools.
