    Re:       Fall Athletics


    I am writing to inform you about our Fall after-school Athletic opportunities for your child(ren). The Lincoln School Athletic program offers a Cross Country team (Grades 5-8), Boys Soccer  and Girls Soccer teams (Grades 6-8). The fall season runs from September 7th through October 24th.  There are no Athletic games or practices during weekends.  All practices will be held after school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday from 2:50 to 4:30 & Friday from 2:50 to 4:00. Protocols have been put in place to provide care and safety to all participants. 


    To enroll your child(ren) for one of our Fall teams, students must come to the Lincoln Middle School Cafeteria or the Middle School gym lobby and signup during the first week of school. There will be an Athletics table set up with a sign-up list and all the information and necessary paperwork provided. All paperwork must be turned in to Mr. Burke to tryout.


    Tuesday, September 7th is the first day of Practice for our Cross-Country team. There are no “Tryouts” for Cross Country, all participants are welcome.


    Soccer Tryouts will be Thursday, Sept. 7th, Friday, Sept. 8th, Monday, Sept. 11th and Tuesday, September 12th from 2:50 to 4:30. Students must bring their own water bottle and snack.  


    Kindly note that coming to tryouts and participating does not guarantee your child to a spot on the team that they sign up for. Regrettably, team sizes are limited to support safety and the supervision required for the season.


    For a fee of $175.00, your child will be eligible to participate in an interscholastic sport. Please make checks or money orders payable to Town of Lincoln.  All sports fees will be turned in to Mr. Burke in the Athletic Office located in the Brooks School gymnasium. Sports fees must be paid prior to the first game in a season to declare a student eligible for participation in any after-school sports offering.


    Under Massachusetts’s regulations for Physical Examinations of school children, No child may participate without the results of a physical exam on file in the school nurse’s office.  All students must have had a physical within 13 months prior to the start of a season to participate in the Lincoln School Athletic program.


    In order to tryout and participate in after school athletics, each student must have the following on file before tryouts begin.


    1. A signed Lincoln Sports Registration form.
    2. The results of a physical exam on file in the school nurse’s office.
    3. A signed Extracurricular Activities Medical Questionnaire.
    4. A Parent and Student Head Injury Training Affidavit signed by a parent/guardian and student.


    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at sburke@lincnet.org.
