Basketball Tryouts

7th and 8th grade basketball tryouts are scheduled for Thursday, September 24 and Friday, September 25, 2020.


Boys: 2:30-4:00PM

Girls: 4:00-5:30PM


Tryouts are open to 7th and 8th grade boys and girls only. In order to participate in tryouts, you must be signed up on PlanetHS, pay the sports fee, and have a current physical on file at CMS.


In order to be selected for either the JV 7th grade or Varsity 8th grade team, an athlete must be in attendance for at least one day of tryouts. If you miss both days of tryouts, you will start out practicing with the C-Team. After attending a C-Team practice, the coaches, in conjunction with the athletic director, may then make the decision to move a player onto the 7th or 8th grade team.  7th graders may not play on the 8th grade team.


Athletes of all ability levels are welcome and encouraged to join the basketball teams at CMS.  Basketball tryouts can be an anxious time for middle school students.  If an individual doesn't want the stress of tryouts, but still would like to play as part of the CMS team, they may begin practicing with the C-Team on Monday, September 30.


At the conclusion of tryouts, the 7th and 8th grade coaches will make selections for their individual teams.  Anyone not selected for the 7thJV/8th Varsity team is on the C-Team.  All athletes will know before leaving tryouts which team they have been selected for.  The teams are as follows:


7th/8th girls Mixed Team

7th/8th Boys Mixed Team

7th grade JV girls

7th grade JV boys

8th grade Varsity girls

8th grade Varsity boys
