WL Golf Tryouts July 29,30

WL Golf tryouts will be held on July 29,30
 
If you haven't already done so, please ensure that you submit your required athletic forms and physical via email to karen.weaver@apsva.us - if you don't have your forms submitted you will not be eligible to tryout for the team. Forms required can be found here: https://wlathletics.org/main/filesLinks/
 
We are likely to have our biggest turn out in team history,  it is with this in mind that I am asking for you to confirm to me in a separate email your intentions to tryout. The school is responsible for paying for all greens fees and "no shows" count against us and we still have to pay the fee. All players must have their own clubs and balls (if anyone doesn't have clubs or balls, please let me know and I will work with you to borrow what is needed).
 
I know a few of the returning players have friends that are interested in playing this year, please reach out to them and ensure they have sent me their info as well.
 
Tryouts are held at East Potomac Golf Course - we will meet at the practice green in front of the range each day at 7:30am and warmups will be until 8am. The first group will tee off at 8am. If you cannot make it by 8am, please let me know ahead of time so I can put you in a later group.
 
Appropriate attire is required, please dress for the weather
  • Collared shirt
  • Shorts / Skirts
  • Golf / Athletic shoes
  • 32oz Water
  • Clubs / balls
Pull carts are available on a first come first serve basis at the course or you are welcome to bring your own.
