All athletes must have a completed sports physical accepted by the Trainer  BEFORE trying out for any team at THS.   This years physicals will be held on Tuesday, June 5th in the Bulldog Arena


Tryouts will be held at Crane Park  from Aug. 6th to Aug. 9th from 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m.  Attendance is mandatory for all days! Potential athletes must be academically eligible and FULLY cleared by the athletic trainer prior to trying out.  Tryouts will culminate in a trial run in which athletes must finish within the time standard and top 15 in their division.

Team Rules

All team Rules & Regulations have been reviewed with the athletes.  Complete rules are on our website.  There are some major rules that require reiteration:

  1. Athletes who are suspended for any reason during the season immediately forfeit the privilege of being on the team.
  2. Athletes are allowed only one 'dog-day' during the season.  With commitment comes sacrifice!
  3. School is the meat, we are the gravy!  Utilize THS resources to keep those grades up!  Academics rule!
