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. 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, (2) Medical Treatment Authorization Waiver, (3) BUSD Health Certification for Participation (signed and stamped by a doctor). If your child had a physical after 6/3/2023, then you can simply attach a copy of that physical form to our BUSD Health Certification for Participation Form to satisfy the doctor requirement. Students will also need to submit a LEARNS Walk Home Waiver if they plan to leave after their sport. 

 

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.

Cross Country

Cross Country (XC)

 

No tryout!  Just a 2-week "trial period" to make sure XC is a good fit for the student and a good fit for the coaching staff.  No prior experience needed, just a great attitude!  Runners are required to attend a minimum of (2) practices a week.  The XC Meet Schedule will not be finalized until the end of August.  Meets will be run on Mondays and Thursdays.  Meets can count towards the 2-day a week minimum requirement.  Parent volunteer help will be needed when we host meets at King.
