The Kosciusko School District has announced guidelines for athletics tryouts for the 2020 – 2021 season.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be a limit on the number of people who can attend each tryout session.

In order to tryout for a sport, each student or his/her parent should email the coach listed as that sport’s contact and let them know you would like to tryout.

The coach will respond through email, giving the student a specific time to report to tryouts. If you do not contact the coach prior to the tryout to receive a specific time, you may not be allowed to tryout at that time. Any student who participates in tryouts will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms before being allowed to participate. All tryouts will be closed to the public.

Only Kosciusko School District staff and students will be allowed into the facilities.

Students must have (1) a valid physical and (2) a parent-signed COVID-19 Waiver before they will be allowed to tryout.

If you are not sure whether you have a valid physical on file with the school district, ask the coach when you email them to receive your tryout time. The coach can tell you if the school already has a valid physical on file for the student or not.

The link below will take you to the Kosciusko School District COVID-19 Waiver for athletic/activities participation, which will need to be signed and brought to the tryout.

This waiver is also posted on the Kosciusko School District website (www.ksd.k12.ms.us) on the right side under “What’s New”: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1WjbS6oanp-v3cMlJ6WxXC3S6mTw1QgM_XtmPmHT0wcM/edit?usp=sharing
