INFORMATION AND TEAM POLICIES Due to COVID, guidelines and restrictions have been put in place by various state agencies that are going to change the way Cental MA's sports' daily practice, game and transportation schedules and procedures have looked in years past. Please be patient as we get that information out to the community.
Try-outs are open to all students who:
Are academically eligible
Have a physical on file with the Tahanto nurse that is dated after July 28, 2018.
Have registered online
Have paid the athletic fee.
TEAM SELECTION PROCESS
Selection will be based on the following criteria:
Knowledge of the Game
Team size will be determined by the coach. Players that are not selected to the team will be spoken to privately and user fees will be returned.
The Middle School team is more of a developmental team with emphasis on developing the golf skills of each individual. There may be a few competitive matches depending upon the availability of the course and finding other schools to compete
Times of varsity practices vary and are generally between 2:30 – 4:00 pm on Mondays through Friday. Middle school practices will be 2:30-4:00, on some days of the week(TBA).
Players are expected to be at all practices unless absent from school.
Before trying out for a team, each player should determine whether they can meet the time commitment that is necessary for the good of the team.
Players should dress appropriately…collared shirt, golf shoes and appropriate shorts/pants.
Players are responsible for their uniforms. Any player that loses his/her uniform is obligated to pay the replacement cost.
Varsity – No player is guaranteed playing time; every effort will be made to allow each player to contribute to the success of the team on a regular basis
MS - Every effort will be made to give each MS player the opportunity to play in the game provided they have attended practices, have displayed a positive attitude and have not violated any school/team rules
Transportation to practices at Cyprian Keyes wil be provided but parents will need to pick up the students at Cyprian Keyes at the end of practices.
All team members must ride the bus to away matches when a bus is provided. Parents must pick the students up after the match at Tahanto.
Middle School students may ride home with their parent/guardian provided they have brought in a note to the main office on the day of the match. (It must be the parent/guardian of the student that they are riding with NOT someone else’s parents)
Please make arrangements to pick your son/daughter up from the practices at the time that practice is over and from the match when the bus arrives back at Tahanto.
Communication regarding practices, match schedules, cancellations etc. can be found on the Tahanto athletic web site. Please check the site on a regular basis as changes are made frequently due to weather, cancellations, gym availability, etc. Each team has their own web page where the information for that team can be found
