Winter 2023-24 Tryouts Information - Monticello High School
Greetings, Mustangs family!
As we prepare to begin our 2023-24 Virginia High School League (VHSL) winter sports tryouts and practices over the coming weeks, I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you information and steps necessary for participation.
First, it is our mission to share the values of respect and fair play with every student, every day through participation in VHSL athletics and activities. Finally, 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 three things… 1. Bring a VHSL Physical form (if it’s not already on file in our athletics office), 2. Bring a water bottle, 3. Bring a positive attitude.
Parents – please make sure your child is registered for participation online at
, click ‘REGISTRATION’. We have a computer available in the athletics office during regular school hours if you need assistance and/or internet connectivity.

Where Can I Get A Sports Physical?
Families are encouraged to contact their Pediatrician or Primary Care Physician to complete VHSL Physical Examination requirements. If something more timely is necessary, MedExpress offers convenient and affordable sports physicals without advance appointments required (
for information on MedExpress sports physicals). Please take your own copy of the
VHSL Physical Form
to your physician. Some physicians complete the medical part(s) of the form, which does not complete the entire four (4) pages required for participation.
Please note that sports physicals do not take the place of annual visits to the doctor for a comprehensive health and wellness examination. It is recommended that children receive such examinations at least once a year.
