    Tryout Information:






    The spring 2022 War Eagle Baseball season is just around the corner! The 1st official day of tryouts is Jan 17th and will continue to at least Wednesday 1/19. We will potentially have a primary cut on 1/18 and final cuts will be made on 1/19, 20 and/or 1/21.  If there is bad weather the tryout process could potentially be made as long as needed to thoroughly evaluate all players beyond Wednesday 1/19. All players must have a current up to date physical on file (through Dragonfly software - see the home page of our athletic website)

    DragonFly Physical Info link:  https://www.forsyth.k12.ga.us/Page/22469

    Dragonfly sign offs on entered physicals will be done on 1/8/22 and 1/14/22. If a player does not have a physical entered into dragonfly and is signed off on/complete by midnight of 1/14 they will not be able to try out on day 1!

    **If you played a fall or winter sport for South it is already on file you should be all set...

    Day #1 of tryouts: be in proper baseball attire (hat, baseball pants, spikes, sleeves and a glove). Please dress for outdoor conditions - although you will definitely spend time in the indoor hitting facility. All players must be in long sleeves, baseball pants, a hat and have a pair of gym shoes (no spikes in the hitting facility but spikes are needed for outside use) as well for use in the hitting facility. All physicals are due in before tryouts to ensure it is properly filed and reflected in the school's database. If it is turned in on Friday the 14th please bring a photo - copy of it with you to tryouts as it may not be reflected in the dragonfly database and thus we can't allow you to try out without one. 

    There is no school on 1/17 (MLK Day) but we will have tryouts. We will firm start times as we get closer to the date and heave a better idea of the weather. As of now (12/14/21) the tentative start times are as follows:

    -Varsity Tryouts/Evals (all juniors, seniors and players with former Varsity experience)

    Check in time: 11:30  Stretch/Start: 12:00

    Sub Varsity (all underclassmen)

    Check in: 2:40   Start/Stretch: 3:00

      you will tryout the following day after your season ends even if it is mid week. Be prepared to hit the ground running as we will be in full season mode. As of now, sub varsity basketball and wrestling will be done by 2/8 - i.e 2/9 will be your first day of tryouts.
