|We are excited to announce that we are currently in the process of building a new website to help bring improvements to our Holly Families. Our new website will be easier to navigate and bring a range of new developments, including a new, fully responsive design aimed to provide an optimal viewing and browsing experience across multiple platforms, a fresher interface which is fully optimized for user navigation, and dedicated to keeping our families up to date on the latest happenings in the district. Keep an eye on our current site for more information!|
Winter high school student athletes will be allowed to get their try out card (which is mandatory for ALL high school athletes) during office hours. If questions contact the AD at firstname.lastname@example.org or the coach.
In order to be given a tryout card, the student-athlete must:
- have a completed physical form (dated after April 15th) on file.
- have passed four classes and earned at least a 2.0 gpa during the third trimester (incoming, first time 9th graders…you have a fresh start…MS grades will not be checked)
- pay the $125 participation fee; this is a one time payment during the school year and not a per season fee. (This fee is actually due by the first contest and not upon tryout card request.)

The athletic department, along with Dr. Larry Baylis and his staff, are offering a physical day at HHS on Wednesday, June 3rd. Pre-participation sport physicals are required for all MS and HS student athletes. Anyone, including elementary age students and athletes from outside of our district, may sign up.
Sign up process...
1. Stop in the high school athletic office and schedule an appt. for $15. The fee is due at the time you schedule an appt. and therefore you can not call for an appt.
2. You will be given an appt. card, an appt. time and a physical form.
3. Completely fill out the form including signatures from the parent and the athlete. The only portion that should be blank when you arrive is the portion to be completed by the doctor.
4. Note - we will begin giving physicals at 3pm. If you sign up fairly soon, you will get an appt. early in the afternoon. If you wait to sign up until later in the month or early June, you will get a late afternoon/early evening time slot. There is NO end time. We will be done after the last scheduled appt.
Day of…June 3rd
1. Arrive 5-10 minutes early … do not be late.
2. Get a physical
3. MS / HS students - leave your physical form on file with us; if you need a copy, we will give you one. Elem. students - take your form with you.
