LEARNS Sports Fall Sports Offerings

August 16, 2021


ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST WEAR MASKS DURING ALL INDOOR AND OUTDOOR PRACTICES AND GAMES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!!! Our King Athletic Program is run through our LEARNS Afterschool Program. All athletes MUST be registered with the LEARNS Afterschool Program once you have made the final roster. Those sports with "No Tryout" require students to already be registered with LEARNS prior to their first day of practice. 2021-22 Sports Page

Students WILL NOT be allowed to tryout for any team without completion of the 3 required documents:

  1. Assumption of Risk for Participation in Voluntary Sports Program Voluntary Sports Waiver

  2. Medical Treatment Authorization Waiver District Medical Treatment Authorization

  3. BUSD Health Certification for Participation (signed and stamped by a doctor). These forms are attached here and new forms must be completed each year. If your child had a physical after 6/11/2021, then you can simply attach a copy of that physical form to our BUSD Health Certification for Participation Form to satisfy the doctor requirement.

We are still in the process of hiring coaches. Those sports with a "TBD" will have their practice days/times announced once the coaches clear district onboarding. The practice schedule is built around the coach's school and/or work schedule, so please be patient and aware of the announcement of practice days and times. Practices are twice a week for 1.5 hours each, no weekends. No prior experience needed! Although we would like to take everybody on the team, the numbers can be too high to ensure safety, quality instruction, and playing time. Students and parents need to be aware of what a tryout entails and that there will be some who make the team and some who won't. We encourage all students to do their best, but you must also be prepared for either outcome. There is a doctor students can go to to get their physical done if their primary provider will not provide one in time. They can call ahead and get a same day appointment. Here is that info...
