2013-2014 Berrendos Athletics
A reminder that ALL students who wish to participate in Berrendos athletics must have some form of medical insurance. If a student does not have insurance through an adult in his/her family, a parent/guardian my purchase a low cost health insurance plan through the school. A school insurance form will be included as part of the beginning of the school year packet each student will bring home. More forms may be found in the school office.
2013-2014 Athletics and Transportation
Welcome to another year of Berrendos Athletics. The fall sports which students may participate in include: volleyball (girls only), coed soccer and cross country. Information regarding the fall sports will be given out during the students physical education classes. Girls basketball will begin as soon as volleyball and soccer conclude. Boys basketball starts after Winter Break with try-outs occurring prior to vacation. Following boys basketball, we have girls softball and boys baseball. We end the year with track. Since the school is not able to supply bus transportation for away games, we have to rely on the generosity of our parents to help drive our athletes to the games. If you think that at any point and time you will be willing to help transport athletes, you need to obtain the appropriate paper work from the office. Once you get this done, you are able to drive students for any Berrendos activity; this includes sporting events and field trips for the remainder of the school year. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Berrendos Athletic Director - Nancy Wagner at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at 527-6700.
