Track Parent Meeting and Information
Track and Field season starts on March 5th and we are excited to invite all of our students to come out for the team. Track and Field is a "no cut" sport, so anyone who is academically eligible (1.8 GPA or better and no F's for the 3rd Quarter) and has all paperwork complete can join the team. Even if students are not runners, they can throw shot put and discus.
At least one parent/guardian of students who are interested in track will need to attend the preseason parent meeting on Wednesday, February 27th, at 5:30pm in the Brookpark auditorium in order for their child to participate in track. Paperwork will be collected and handed out, and information will be presented by Coach Kuhn and Coach Cummerlander at the meeting, so all parents of track and field athletes must attend.
Prior to attending or if you are unable to attend, please make sure that you view the following powerpoint, OHSAA Powerpoint. Filling out the track paperwork states that you have viewed the powerpoint and sudden cardiac arrest video within the powerpoint. All track paperwork, including a completed, up-to-date physical form that is filled out by a doctor, must be on file in the office prior to your child participating in track. Thank you, in advance, for your time and commitment to athletics at Brookpark. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Dr. Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Incoming freshmen football workouts begin Feb 20th. The workouts will be held every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 5:15-6:15 inside the Grove City Recreation Center.
Success Beyond the Classroom (SBC) Scholarships for Athletics
Does your middle school child plan to play sports? There is scholarship money made available through the Success Beyond the Classroom Foundation (SBC) to assist in covering the Pay-to-Participate cost. SBC is a non-profit organization that raises funds to provide scholarships to qualified students in the district who wish to participate in athletics and/or their school marching band.
SBC members believe that extra-curricular activities help students learn and practice the skills needed for success in all areas of life. To be considered for an SBC scholarship, students must submit and fully complete an application, which is available on the district and school websites. Administrators, Athletic Directors, and/or coaches at each building can help you locate the SBC application.
Applications can also be found on the building and district websites. For more information, deadline dates, and scholarship application, please visit http://athletics.swcsd.us/SBC or you may contact the school Athletic Director.
