SWMS Athletics






Our school strives to offer as many sports as possible to both male and female students. All athletic programs will stress academic success, physical fitness, character development, discipline, and good sportsmanship. Our athletes represent our school and community and are expected to be student leaders with positive behavior.

Physicals

Students must complete a satisfactory medical examination during each academic school year in which they plan to participate. Sport physical forms can be picked up in the front office; these require a doctor's signature. Students should hold onto their sports physical forms until they are ready to try out for a sport. Under no circumstances should physicals be dropped off at the front office or left with any teacher. All forms must be submitted to Mr. DeSantis directly.
