    Re:       Winter Athletics


    I am writing to inform you about our Winter after-school Athletic opportunities for your child(ren) in grades 6-8. The Lincoln School Athletic program offers a Boys and Girls Basketball team. The Winter season runs from December 4th through February 2nd.  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.


    To enroll your child(ren) for tryouts for one of our Winter Basketball teams, students must come to the Lincoln Middle School gymnasium and signup and collect the necessary paperwork. There will be an Athletics table set up with a sign-up list and all the information and necessary paperwork provided. Monday, December 4th is the first day of “Tryouts” for the Basketball teams. Please turn in all paperwork to Mr. Burke.


    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 Middle 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. Financial Assistance is available. The Financial Assistance form can be found on our school website.


    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.
