All teams practice everyday. Most practice right after school from approximately 3-5 pm, some practice later in the evening depending on the availability of facilities. All student-athletes who make the team are expected to attend all practices, games and post-season competitions. Joining an athletic team is a privilege and student-athletes are expected to represent MSJHS with the highest values of sportsmanship and ethical behavior as set forth by the MVAL, CIF and NCS.
Most teams play games once or twice a week in league competition. Our league consist of the five Fremont schools as well as James Logan and Newark Memorial H.S. The league schedules can be found at : www.themval.org. There are also possible weekend games / tournaments depending on the sport. All team members are expected to attend these as well.
In order to help maintain our athletic program, the athletic department as well as each team will ask for donations. Some of these donations are a one time donation. The following is a list of donations we currently ask for: We ask that the MSJHS athletic fee and FUSD Coaching be donated for each sport your son / daughter joins.
All student-athletes must have current physical to hand in to the coach BEFORE they tryout for any team. No student-athlete will be allowed to tryout until the coach has this important document on file. The physical form as well as other forms may be downloaded off the MSJHS web site. We recommend your son or daughter obtain a physical ASAP. Make copies if they are going to tryout for various sport teams.
Information regarding teams and tryouts will be listed in the student bulletin. Students may also contact the Tom Thomsen, Athletic Director: firstname.lastname@example.org for any other information. They may also call the athletic office at 510-770-0136. All freshman students will have a short athletic orientation during their PE class the first week of school.
