Dear Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Grade Students and Parents;

The winter season is just around the corner, and with it comes the excitement of Barnegat Athletics!  The Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Grade Interscholastic Winter Sports Program includes three (3) interscholastic sports and activities: Boys and Girls Basketball, and Wrestling.

Each Interscholastic Sports Program will include approximately two to three (2-3) games or meets per week and two or three (2 or 3) practice sessions per week.  Schedules can be located on schedulestar.com or on the Brackman page of the website under Bulldog Athletics. Practice sessions will vary by sport, with the possibility of an occasional weekend session.  Game schedules and times will vary due to the traveling distance and the location of Barnegat opponents. No transportation will be provided for students at the end of practice. Parents MUST provide transportation home when practice is completed. If your child has not yet had a physical for the 2018-2019 school year, you must make arrangements to have a medical examination conducted by a private physician as soon as possible.  As per board policy, such medical examination results must be reported on approved Barnegat Township School District forms, inclusive of all mandated information. Forms are available on the district website or in the Brackman main office. When complete, please return to the main office of the Russell O. Brackman Middle School.  The Pre-participation Physical Evaluation forms MUST be completed PRIOR to the physical exam.

Candidates who miss their respective grade level tryout day because they have not returned their required paperwork will not be given additional tryout dates.

No student will be allowed to make up a tryout unless they have a doctor’s note for that day.    

All tryout candidates should bring a proper change of clothing.  They will be given an opportunity to change before and after tryouts.  Students are encouraged to lock all their belongings in the locker room with the school lock they are issued.  They should be sure that the lock is properly engaged before leaving the locker room.

One sports physical is required per school year; however, if a student wishes to participate in another sport, an UPDATE HEALTH QUESTIONAIRE form must be picked up in the office or printed from the website.    All forms must be completed by their parent/guardian and signed by both the parent/guardian and student and returned to the Main Office prior to the tryout dates for the winter and spring seasons.
