Thank you for supporting your child's decision to tryout for flag football at Albany Middle School.  Trying something new and going out for a team is very brave and your child should be commended.
Due to the number of students interested in participating, we will be making cuts. Coaches will select players based on several criteria, including, but not limited to;
-work ethic
-position played
-committment level

* All tryouts will take place on Cougar Softball Field!
Team rosters will be emailed to parents on the evening of Friday, Sept. 8th.  Please keep in mind that our coaches will do their best to select players that will create a well-balanced team that will give our students an opportunity to compete.  Rest assured that our coaches will give all students a fair shot at making the team.  
Please have a conversation with your child about how the tryout process works, limited spots, and that she/he should feel proud for having the courage to participate in the tryouts.
