Tryouts and Important Dates

Completed Interval Health History forms (Sports Triplicate) and a current Physical Exam (within the last calendar year) must be turned in to the Nurses Office prior to sports tryouts.   As a reminder, there are no physical exams offered at McQuaid.  The Interval Health History form can be found electronically in onCampus, and must be signed by both the parent and student.  Once submitted, the form will go directly to the Nurses Office, and they will contact you ONLY if additional information is needed. A new Interval Health History has to be completed every time a sport is done.

The official Section V start date is September 21, 2020 for all fall sports.  Tryouts will not start prior to that date.  See below for the exact start date that each team will use.  Football and Volleyball have been moved to “Fall 2”, which will begin in the spring.

**Due to the impact of COVID-19 on the high school athletic calendar, we will not be able to offer open invitations for any 7th or 8th grade student-athlete to participate in the Athletic Placement Process. The resulting shortened season calendar, implementation of new health and safety protocols, and a scramble to schedule games means we do not have the time and resources to offer every student-athlete this opportunity. Therefore, the APP will be by invitation only this fall. After careful consultation with fall coaches at every level, we will contact those student-athletes, and their families, directly to inform him of his selection. Please remember, this program is designed for the exceptional athlete, and the specific talent and physical maturity required will be well above the level of average athletes of a similar age. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Athletic Director, Matt Thomas, personally at 585-256-6174, or mthomas@mcquaid.org.
