WELCOME TO THE HOME OF BOOKER T. WASHINGTON WILDCATS BASEBALL
Summer Tryouts will take place on Monday (6/7/21) @ 10:00am at the BTWHS Baseball Facility- Please see the Important information below.
We will have summer baseball tryouts for incoming 9th graders, returning players & transferring students on June 7th @ 10:00 (BTWHS Baseball Facility), with a meet and greet scheduled for Tuesday June 8th @ 6:00 pm (BTWHS Baseball Facility). Summer training will start the following day (6/9/21) and end on Wednesday (6/30/21). Training will take place Monday-Wednesday at the baseball field. The workout times will be 8:00 am-11:00 am. We will also be playing games on some Mondays and Tuesdays (a schedule will be provided at the meet and greet). Summer ball participants will need to complete all necessary eligibility paperwork online through the (Home Campus App.).
1.Students wishing to tryout and participate for baseball this summer (2021) will utilize https://athleticclearance.fhsaahome.org/ to complete the 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).
Each student athlete will create a profile within the website and complete the required documentation with a parent/guardian. Once they've created a profile on the website and they've 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. The only gray area currently, is EL2's. Parents and athletes will have the ability to upload a completed EL2 into the website, for viewing and confirmation. I believe our AD will be the only person with the ability to approve and grant clearance for any student athletes.
Review of important items -
1. Prospective baseball athletes and parents need to complete the eligibility documentation using the website listed above (prior to summer tryouts).
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. (AS STATED ABOVE, THESE CERTIFICATES CAN BE UPLOADED INTO THE ELIGIBILITY WEBSITE/APP LISTED ABOVE).
Please keep in mind that summer baseball and regular season baseball do not go hand in hand. All players (even returning players) will have an opportunity to make our high school team in January 2022 during our regular season tryout schedule. However, our summer baseball training program does afford all incoming players an opportunity to impress our BTWHS baseball coaching staff. I look forward to meeting the newest additions to the Wildcat family this summer, and I hope that you are excited about BTWHS Baseball.
