Frequently Asked Questions


 Is there a fee to participate in Badger Athletics?

There is NO fee to participate.  However, there are some costs for some sports. (shoes, gloves, clubs, racquets, etc.) 

What if I get cut from a team and I really wanted to go out for a sport?

YOU CAN!   Very few sports at Badger cut.  Don’t let that deter you from trying.

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

If you get cut from a sport you may be able to go out for another sport even if that sport has already started. Just go talk to the coach, the Athletic Secretary or Athletic Director.

“There is no failure except in no longer trying. It is the courage to continue that counts.”

Do teams have tryouts?

Some sports have tryouts.  You must attend all of the tryout days.  If you cannot attend all of the tryout days, contact the coach.

How do I get home from practice?

Badger provides a late bus for athletes when school is in session (5:45 p.m.)   Take your Badger student I.D. card to Badger’s front office to receive your late bus athletic sticker prior to each season.

Is there busing to and from games/competitions?

Badger provides transportation to and from all athletic competitions.  The bus returns the students to Badger. Students are required to travel to/from activities on the bus.   In the event that you cannot travel back from an event on the bus an Alternate Transportation Form must be completed by the parent and given to the coach PRIOR to the event.

What is the Alternate Transportation Form?

Form can be found online or in the Front/Athletic Offices. When choosing to take alternative transportation home:

· Coach’s  approval must be obtained.

· No athlete can ride to or from an event with anyone but a coach (medical circumstances) or parent/legal guardian.

· Students MAY NOT ride home with another student’s parents or drive home themselves.

· Form must be filled out and returned to coach no later than 24 hours before the event.

Can I practice or play in a game/meet if I missed school?
