APP winter


Attention: Middle School students looking to tryout for a WINTER high school sport, APP registration is now open. Please mark your calendars and note these very important dates regarding the Athletic Placement Process (APP). Again, this is for individuals looking to be approved to tryout/play on a high school WINTER team.

If your son/daughter is interested in trying out for a winter high school sport a Parent/Guardian must contact Mr. Hourahan to obtain the APP application/permission form. You can email Mr. Tim Hourahan at thourahan@lakelandschools.org in order to obtain the application/permission form.

APP Application must be submitted by Tuesday, October 5th at 3:00PM - APPLICATION MUST BE SUBMITTED BY THIS DATE IN ORDER TO PROCEED WITH REMAINDER OF THE PROCESS.

All students that submitted application on-time will need to successfully pass the APP physical fitness examination. The APP physical fitness examination will take place on THURSDAY, October 7th at 8:00AM before school in LCBMS Gym A.

If your son/daughter successfully passes the physical fitness examination they will be made an appointment to see Dr. Corsaro for the maturity examination. The maturity examination only consists of a verbal conversation with Dr. Corsaro. Maturity examinations performed by Dr. Corsaro will be THURSDAY, October 14th during the school day. .

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 on October 18th and close on November 5th at 3:00PM. Finally, if your son/daughter is attending Walter Panas HS, please complete the Walter Panas sport card registration form. If your son/daughter is attending Lakeland HS, please complete the Lakeland HS sports card registration form when the forms open in July.

Lastly, there will be no applications accepted after Tuesday, October 5th at 3:00PM. If the tanner examination appointment that is scheduled for your son/daughter is missed on Thursday, October 14th it cannot be made up with our District Chief Medical Officer. Finally, if your son/daughter cannot attend the fitness examination on Thursday, October 7th or does not successfully pass the fitness examination, there will ONLY be ONE makeup date on Friday, October 8th. 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 process. I thank you all in advance for your understanding and cooperation with this, and I am very pleased will be able to afford this opportunity to our students this spring!

Any questions please contact Mr. Hourahan or the Athletic Office at Lakeland High School.
