Sport Team Sign-ups

Fall Sports
Coaches’ meeting will be held in the Middle School sometime in late May. Students in Grades 6, 7, and 8 are invited. Pre-season generally begins one (1) week prior to the start of school. The fall season ends in mid-October.

Tryouts for the freshman squad take place in late April early May. Announcements will be made in the Middle School for sign-ups.

Booster Club
Most teams have an active Booster Club that helps raise money for various program expenses. Most Booster Clubs meet regularly while the sport is in season. An initial letter is generally sent home either with the athlete or mailed directly to the parent at the beginning of the season. If you have any questions about getting involved with a Booster Club, contact the coach or Athletic Director.

At the conclusion of each season the Booster Club or coach organizes an awards banquet for the team. These banquets are held at a variety of locations, including the high school cafeteria and the banquet facility at Weaver Markets. The Booster Club pays the meal cost for the athlete. Parents and other guests are asked to pay for their own meals.

According to PIAA rules, regular attendance and academic progress must be monitored for all athletes. If an athlete is absent during a semester for a total of 20 or more school days he/she becomes ineligible until he/she has been in attendance for a total of 45 school days following the 20th day of absence. An athlete must be passing at least four full credits as of each Friday during a grading period. Failure to meet this requirement will result in loss of eligibility for the following week. Cocalico uses the “2 class rule" - any athlete failing two (2) or more classes becomes ineligible for the next week.

Feel free to contact Roger Czerwinski (717-336-1450), Director of Athletics, for more information about the Cocalico athletic program.
