Girls Basketball

JMMS girls basketball tryouts will be held on Thursday, November 12th and Friday, November 13th from 3:30 to 5:20.  There will be an activity bus each day for those players who need a ride.  If you are picking up your child from tryouts, please be here by 5:30, or she will be placed on the activity bus for transportation home. 

EQUIPMENT NEEDED: Each player should dress appropriately for basketball.  Players are encouraged to wear shorts and must have tennis shoes.  Parents are encouraged not to buy new equipment, shoes, etc. until after the team has been selected.   

GENERAL INFORMATION: Roanoke City Schools requires physicals for middle school sports.  All players attending tryouts are required to have a physical on file in our school’s office.  It must be a VHSL issued physical form.  Forms are available in the main office at JMMS or online at  Physicals on file from fall sports tryouts are good through the end of the year.  JMMS also requires all students staying after school to have a permission form to do so.  These will be handed out during gym by Mrs. Hayes.

Note to parents:  We are delighted that your daughter has expressed an interest in basketball.  Our only regret is that we cannot keep all players that tryout for the team.  Please have your daughter return the two required forms by Wednesday, November 11th so that we know you have been informed.  We will not accept any forms the day of tryouts.  We can be reached at the school at 853-2351 or by email for any questions:
