Pre-Season Tryouts and Requirements

We are pleased that you are contemplating to be a candidate for one of our East Haven Public Schools athletic programs. Before you start, there are some important things that you should understand.

It is important that you know that in some sports there is a need to make cuts which is one of the more unpleasant tasks a coach has to do, but is necessary to reduce a squad to a workable size. Before deciding to be a candidate, you and your parents must be prepared to accept the possibility you may not be selected. The Coaches are the sole judges of all candidates. Before you can become involved in a sport, you must:
