We are pleased to offer a comprehensive athletic program, which is tryout based. Tryout dates are shared during morning announcements and published in our online McCracken Weekly. Remember to check with the nurse to be sure we have a copy of your student's current physical and athletic permit form, which are required for tryouts. Students will not be allowed to participate in tryouts without all of the required forms submitted. Payment should be submitted to school offices after tryouts.
