Spring Sports Tryouts Information – Monticello High School
Spring sports tryouts for Monticello athletics begin Monday, February 21. We are excited for the opportunity each new season brings to live our mission of sharing the values of respect and fair play with every student, every day through participation in VHSL athletics and activities. I encourage you to carefully review the information below and reach out directly to our coaches for sport-specific questions or contact us here in the athletics office if we can be of any assistance.
Students – make sure you have four things…
1. Bring a VHSL Physical form (if it’s not already on file in our athletics office).
2. Bring a water bottle (stay hydrated, stay healthy).
3. Bring a mask (required in locker rooms or other indoor locations).
4. Bring a positive attitude (it’s more fun that way).
Parents – please make sure your child is registered for participation online at, www.GoMonticello.org, click ‘REGISTRATION’. We have a computer available in the athletics office during regular school hours if you need assistance and/or internet connectivity.
