Jimmies News · Fall Sports Practices Start on August 5th (it’s not too late to join a team)


The 1st official day for fall practices to start is August 5th.

It’s not too late to join a team.   You can still be a part of a team.  Studies show that kids who are engaged and involved in a team as they represent their school, their community and their family ALWAYS perform better at school.  Grades are better, attendance is better, social behavior is better when Education-Based Athletics and Activities are a part of the equation.

WE ESPECIALLY NEED GIRLS GOLFERS!!   Girls golf starts a few days before most of the other sports.   Girls golfers will report on Friday, Aug 2nd.   If you or someone you know at Jimtown has played some golf in the past or just wants to learn the sport and stay involved….this is your chance to be on a varsity team.

Per IHSAA rules, all athletes will need a pre-participation physical that is signed by a doctor or nurse practitioner.  This has to be completed and on file at school before you can practice.   There are lots of places that you can get a last minute sports physical including CVS pharmacies, walk-in clinics and your own doctor’s office.   You can download the forms right here on jimtownathletics.org  by clicking here:
