At Carpenter we believe that a student who chooses to participate in athletics has also chosen to work hard to become the best athlete possible. We believe that for a team to be successful each athlete must commit themselves to the team and follow the team's policies to ensure fairness and effective teamwork.
Girls athletics will be held before school and during 1st period, while boys athletics will be held during 7th period and after school. All students must turn in the required forms prior to the first scheduled practice, or they will not be allowed to practice after school.
Football season begins in September and lasts through mid-November. There are no tryouts for football.
Volleyball season begins in September with tryouts to be announced. Each student will be asked to demonstrate the fundamental volleyball skills of passing, setting, hitting, and serving. Coaches will also take into consideration a student's attitude, hustle, and leadership ability. All students will be given an equal opportunity to perform their skills and be evaluated by the coaching staff.
Basketball season begins mid-November and continues until mid-February. 7th and 8th grade both will have an A and B team. Tryouts are scheduled for November.
Track practice will start in February with our first meet scheduled for early March. Boys' and girls' track practice will be held after school till 4:30, Monday through Thursday. Each student that tries out will participate in at least one meet but since individual sports within certain events at the meet are limited, they will be filled competitively in the form of a run/throw/jump off the week prior to the meet. Detailed practice schedules will be passed out during the first track meeting along with the individual meets and the events that will be included in those meets. Parents are urged to pay close attention to each meet format, as not all events will occur each week.
Any student interested in football should contact Coach Sterling about being moved into Athletics. All forms must be completed and signed prior to tryouts or practice. Tryouts are held for basketball and volleyball. There are no tryouts for football or track.
The Athletic Department will provide all equipment except shoes (cleats), socks, and athletic supporters.
When bad weather does not allow us to practice outside, we will practice inside a gym. Athletes need to keep a pair of tennis shoes in their locker for this occasion (since cleats may not be worn on the gym floor).
This decision will be made late in the day, and the front office will be notified as soon as a decision has been made.
