Athletic Placement Process (APP)

Attention: Middle School students looking to tryout for a FALL high school sport (boys/girls soccer, girls tennis, boys/girls cross country, girls swimming, field hockey, volleyball, cheerleading and football), APP registration is now CLOSED.


If your son/daughter is interested in trying out for a fall high school sport, a Parent/Guardian must contact Ms. Sarsen to obtain the APP application/permission form. You can email Ms. Sarsen at ssarsen@lakelandschools.org.

The APP Application must be submitted by Wednesday, 5/26/21 at 3:00 PM - THE APPLICATION MUST BE SUBMITTED BY THIS DATE IN ORDER TO PROCEED WITH THE REMAINDER OF THE PROCESS.

All students that submitted the application on-time will need to successfully pass the APP physical fitness examination. The APP physical fitness examination will take place on WEDNESDAY, 6/2/21 at 4:00PM after school in LCBMS Gym B.

If your son/daughter successfully passes the physical fitness examination they will be made an appointment to see Dr. Corsaro for the maturity examination. Maturity examinations performed by Dr. Corsaro will be MONDAY, 6/7/21 during the school day. Due to the fact that we are currently in a hybrid learning model, the student must be brought to Lakeland Copper Beech MS for their assigned appointment time. This time will be communicated through email once your son/daughter has successfully passed the physical fitness examination. Students will be excused for the time that is missed in class in order for them to attend this appointment. I understand this is not the most ideal circumstance, however, given the current learning model this is the only way that we can afford this opportunity to our students.

Please note a few items:

Signing up for the APP is NOT the same as signing up for a sports card. You MUST complete the HIGH SCHOOL sports card registration form for your son/daughter as well. High School sports card registration will open during the month of July. Dates will be communicated at a later time. Finally, please complete the sports card registration form for the school in which your son/daughter will be attending high school.

Lastly, due to the current restrictions/guidelines that must be met in order to facilitate the fitness portion of this examination, there will be absolutely NO makeups or exceptions to this process. NO applications will be accepted after Wednesday, May 26th at 3:00 PM. If the tanner examination appointment that is scheduled for your son/daughter is missed on Monday, June 7th, it cannot be made up with our District Chief Medical Officer. Finally, if your son/daughter cannot attend the fitness examination on Wednesday, June 2nd or does not successfully pass the fitness examination, there will ONLY be ONE makeup date on Thursday, June 3rd. Again, in order to afford this opportunity for our middle school student-athletes, we unfortunately will not be able to waiver from the hard deadlines established this spring. I thank you all in advance for your understanding and cooperation with this, and I am very pleased we will be able to afford this opportunity to our students this spring!

Any questions please contact Ms. Sarsen or the Athletic Office at Lakeland High School.
