Wildcats Pre-Season Fun Starts Now…and Almost Now

Ready to rumble: pre-season captains practice for Wildcat football

The Weston Owl is an unabashed fan of town sports, while also annoyingly cheering for the Las Vegas (né Oakland) Raiders, Chicago Cubs, and Lionel Messi, wherever he may be. If you’d rather not invest in cable television, or mess with European time zones, or suffer generations of heartbreak, fear not, it’s time for Wildcatt fall sports to be back on the fields and courts. Expect dramatic reporting from the Owl, or perhaps an Owlet or two, and of course the Wildcat Tracks student newspaper. Also please feel free to come out to the fields: not only did you pay for our awesome facilities as a Weston taxpayer, but these students love to have fans in the stands.

While football got an early jump on things yesterday, the other fall sports of soccer, volleyball, golf and cross country all start on Monday, as long as Monsieur Henri, indecisive hurricane and clearly a Raiders fan, heads off quickly. Wayland-Weston Rowing also starts Monday in nearby Wayland. Field hockey begins on Thursday, August 26th.

For those of you with a high school athlete, please make sure they are registered on FamilyID (www.familyID.com) and have a current physical on file with the school nurse. All athletes (not their parents) must complete the online concussion training at the following link: https://www.mass.gov/service-details/concussion-trainings. Once completed, student-athletes should bring copy of the certificate to the coach on the first day of tryouts.

Here is information on the fall tryout and training schedule, which can also be found on the offiical page here:
