Winter Sports at Wachusett Regional High School

Wachusett Regional High School fields eight sports teams during the winter season, at the varsity, JV, and freshman levels. The cost to participate in a sport is $250/athlete per athletic season with a maximum of $350/family per season. People seeking more information about the WRHS athletic program should contact athletic director Jennifer Lynch.

Payment of Athletic Fee: Parents should pay their child's athletic fee through our online payment center. The winter sports payment is due after final cuts are made and the student is selected for a team.

Expectations for WRHS Sports: Playing a high school sport requires of students tremendous dedication. Athletes at the varsity level make a huge commitment of time, effort, and energy. This commitment comes on top of their primary focus on their academic classes. Students who choose to play a winter sport should be aware of the expectations of their chosen sport. All winter sports teams begin practice the Monday after Thanksgiving and continue until March. At the varsity level, most teams practice on weekends and during school vacations, including during the holiday and February breaks. In addition, athletes are often expected to take part in off-season workouts and in-season conditioning sessions. Wachusett Regional High School encourages students to play a sport and get involved in extracurricular activities, but we want everyone to be aware of what is involved. Linked to each sport below are the expectations for that sport. Parents or athletes who have questions should contact the coach of that sport.

To take part in tryouts for a WRHS sports team, all candidates must register online and turn in a valid physical to the school nurse. The MIAA requires physical exams every 13 months to the day of the exam. Students are responsible for ensuring their physical is valid for the duration of the season. The students proof of a physical examination should be completed by the family's physician. This Physical Examination Form may be used if the doctor does not provide his own form.

Students who do not register online and/or do not present a physical examination form to their coaches will not be allowed to participate in tryouts/practice sessions.
