--Anyone interested in trying out for a sports team at Bancroft will need the following:

·         Satisfactory behavior, a good attitude, sportsmanship, and a willingness to work together.

·         Adherence to a signed athletic contract.

·         Adherence to a signed uniform/jersey contract.

·         A Sports Physical, dated After May 1st 2016. This is a new requirement.

All Athletes are required to submit proof of a sports physical in order to participate in tryouts, practices, or compete on any of our sports teams at Bancroft. To ensure the physical is valid for the entire 2016-17 school year, it is best to have the physical occur after May 1, 2016 or during the Summer months. Please make your appointments now for the physical. As an alternative, Bancroft will offer $20 physicals through qualified doctors on Wednesday, August 31. Physicals on August 31 will occur from 3pm-7pm+ in the G-wing/Gym building. You may attend with your child if you desire.
