Just in from the Athletic Director of Weston Schools, Mike McGrath, it’s time for Winter Sports! Well, not quite–they actually start just after Thanksgiving break. How best to work off the 19 pound turkey? In the pool or on the ski slopes perhaps. In any case, check out the options, and then have a chat with the coach by email or head on over to the most sporty of information sessions…zoom….

*In the interests of not having any zoom-bombers, the actual zoom information is not included in this post. You never know when those arch-rival towns are going to show up. If you have a high school athlete, please check your email for information, or email the coach for zoom links.

From AD McGrath:

The Winter Sports Season is upon us! We intend to run our full complement of winter sports: alpine skiing, basketball, ice hockey, indoor track, nordic skiing, swim/dive & wrestling. We will be conducting our Pre-Season Player/Parent Meetings once again via Zoom.  I strongly encourage all families and student-athletes to join your sports meeting to learn about the upcoming season. Within each of these meetings our coaches will inform you of team expectations, the tryout process, practice and game/meet schedules and much more which will be helpful when the season begins on Monday, November 29th.

Important:

  • Start Date: Monday, November 29th
  • All student-athletes should have an up to date physical on file with the school nurse
  • All student-athletes must register on FamilyID (www.familyid.com)
  • Masks must be worn indoors at all times (should this policy change during the season we will notify all student-athletes, coaches & families)
  • Please be sure to follow us on Twitter: @WestonAthletic. Twitter is used to communicate all varsity scores, highlights, etc., as well as any schedule changes or important athletic department information. Additionally, “Arbiterlive” (School Details (arbiterlive.com)) will have all schedules (all levels) for the winter season.
