    The 2023-2024 JCMS softball season will begin on August 21-22, directly at 3:30. Students wishing to tryout must meet the following requirements (if one of these requirements is not met prior to tryouts, students will not be able to tryout). If you wish to tryout for softball, please see or email Coach Rains (see email below).  

    1. Must be in 7th or 8th grade. 

    2. Must have 10 or less unexcused absences the previous semester AND have passed 3 out of 4 core classes and 1 elective class from the previous semester. 

    3. Must have an updated sports physical signed and dated by doctor (found in JCMS front office). (Please note a sports physical is different than a school assessment form.)

    5. Must have attended a mandatory parent meeting with Coach Sweet or Coach Goodwin. If you have missed the meeting, please email Coach Sweet at derek.sweet@onslow.k12.nc.us
