    NFMS is a member of the Forsyth County Middle Schools Basketball League (North Forsyth, South Forsyth, Liberty, Little Mill, Otwell, Piney Grove, Vickery Creek, Riverwatch, Lakeside, Hendricks, and Desana).
    Grade/Eligibility requirements: must pass 5 courses from the previous semester prior to tryouts.
    Medical requirements:  a current physical (good for one calendar year) on file in the athletic department.  (After-school physicals are offered to students in the Spring at a minimal cost.) Specific forms are required for physicals and must be obtained from the Athletic Coordinator and/or Coach.  Physicals can also be found on the school web page under - "Forms". Insurance and parent waiver information may be found on the physical form and must be completed as well.
    Although it is not required, coaches do encourage all those interested in playing basketball at North Middle to work on basic skills in the off-season to enhance their playing potential.  There are many local camps that offer basic instruction in basketball fundamentals, as well as local park and recreation sponsored activities which can help in the development of the athlete.       
    Tryouts:  Held prior to the season in the middle part of October. During this week all potential players will  perform the required skills necessary for making the Wildcat team.  (All those wishing to try out for a position on any of the teams should be here each scheduled tryout date in order for the coaches to evaluate your skill level.)  (Contact the appropriate coach for more information regarding the week of tryouts.)
