Believe it or not, it's here. Not just the heat but High School athletics and physicals.
August 3 is the date set for physicals. The physicals are being held from 9:00am-12:00noon in the high school building (Building 700). When the slots are full, we will not be able to take any more students. ALL ATHLETES PLAYING IN ANY SPORT AT BRACKEN MUST HAVE A PHYSICAL AND A CONCUSSION SCREENING BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN ANY SPORT. You do not have to get your physical completed at Bracken as you can use your own doctor. You can also schedule a concussion screening at Texas Physical Therapy, 184 Creekside Park, Spring Branch, TX, 830-980-4565). Please pick up (or download here) the physical packet and have the doctor use our form. All the pages in the packet must be filled out and signed and returned by the first day of practice. All athletes who did not have a concussion screening last year, must complete a concussion screening this year as we complete concussion screenings every other year. Usually that would be in 6th grade, 8th grade, 10th grade and 12th grade. If you are a new student, you will need to complete the screening this year……regardless of what grade you are in.
August 3 is also the first day of practice for all high school fall sports – football, volleyball and cross country. If any high school student wants to participate on these teams, they must attend the practices beginning on these dates.
High School football practices will be from 7:30-12:30pm. On Monday, there will be a meeting at the beginning and then you can go take your physical before actually participating in football practices. Every day there will be a break from 9:30-10:30 in which boys are asked to bring a snack and Gatorade/Powerade for this time. Water will be provided. The varsity football season schedule should be on line by the first week of August. Warrior football t-shirts will be available for $10 for the athletes to purchase to wear to practice each day.
High School volleyball practice on Monday, Aug. 3, will be from 10:30-11:00, then 11:45-2:45. On Tuesday-Thursday, the schedule is 9:00-10:30 then 11:30-2:30. A calendar of all practices, games, etc. for volleyball is listed on the Bracken website under athletic tab and slide down to volleyball.
High School Cross Country athletes will meet with Coach Jack on Aug. 3 at 8:30 am for a brief meeting and then get your physical at Bracken (if you have made an appointment) and then on the Aug. 4 at 7:00am.
Middle School football begins Aug. 10. Since we begin school later this year and our first middle school football game is on Aug. 27, we are beginning middle school football before school starts. The practices will run from 7:30am-12:30pm taking a break from 9:30-10:30 (where each athlete should bring a healthy snack and Gatorade/Powerade drink to replenish). The MS football season schedule should be on line by the first week in August. Warrior football t-shirts will be available for the football players to purchase to wear to practice each day. The shirts will be $10.
Middle school volleyball practices begin on the Aug. 27. Practices will be during 7th period – from 2:30-3:30.
Middle School cross country practices begin on Aug. 27. In the past, Coach Jack has allowed middle school cross country runners to practice with high school until school begins…….then the Middle School cross country team will practice during 7th period – 2:30-3:30pm.
