Booker T. Washington High Summer Baseball Program:
There will be an informational meeting on May 24, at 6 pm in Classroom 203 at BTWHS. All players wishing to tryout for summer baseball should be in attendance with their parents/guardians. The cost to play on the summer team is $100.
We will have summer baseball tryouts for incoming 9th graders, returning players, and transferring students on Monday, June 5, @ 4:00 pm (BTWHS Baseball Facility). Summer training will start the following day (Tue, 6/6) and end on Thursday, 6/29. Training will take place 3 days a week; please refer to the summer schedule provided. Optional weight room times will be 7-8 am Tuesdays-Thursdays. The schedule will be provided and posted on btwbaseball.com. Summer ball participants will need to complete all necessary eligibility paperwork online through the (Athletic Clearance App).
1.Students wishing to tryout and participate for baseball this summer (2023) will utilize https://athleticclearance.fhsaahome.org/ to complete the EL2, EL3, Code of Conduct, and ECSD Drug Consent Form.
2.NFHS certifications (videos) need to be completed prior to summer tryouts. Start them by using the link (https://www.nfhslearn.com/courses). The following courses are free and need to be completed prior to summer ball: Heat-related illness, Sudden Cardiac Arrest, and concussion in sports. All 3 NFHS certificates will also be uploaded TO THE ATHLETIC CLEARANCE APP (the link is listed above). Do not complete the videos until June 1, or after.
Each student athlete will create an Athletic Clearance profile and complete the required documentation with a parent/guardian. Once they've created a profile selected baseball, their name will be added to a "roster" for baseball within the website. From there, I'll be able to view every student athlete who clicked baseball and their name will appear red or green. Red = Ineligible, Green = Eligible.
The eligibility link is also on the BTWHS Athletic page. Student-athletes and parents must understand, this will be the only version of athletic documentation that will be accepted. Please be aware that it may take a couple of days to get approval to participate, so please get your documents uploaded to your athletic clearance account ASAP.
