2017/2018 Team Tryouts

Tryouts for the 2017/2018 season are mandatory for all sailors interested in being a part of the Sailing Team - both new and returning sailors.  Tryouts will be held on Tuesday, September 5th and Thursday, September 7th from 2:30 PM - 5:30/6:00 PM at Newport Harbor Yacht Club (NHYC).  Attendance at both tryouts is mandatory. Please bring your life jacket and appropriate sailing gear. Prior to tryouts you must complete the following:

1. Athletic Clearance Form: - must be on file in the Athletic Office before try-outs begin (no exceptions).  Click on this link for the form.

 In order to complete the Athletic Clearance Form you need to have a physical performed by your doctor, and have the Athletic Clearance Form signed by your doctor. We suggest turning in this form at registration and be sure to keep a copy in case it gets misplaced at school.

2. Sailor Interview Form: - Complete the form which you can access in the Documents section of this website, and email to Head Coach, Dodge Rees at dodge.rees@nhycstaff.org by August 30th.

A Note about Class Schedules

Your class schedule may have a conflict with sailing team practice times.  The school will not adjust your schedule to accommodate Team practice until they receive confirmation that you are on the Team.  This cannot happen for either new or returning Team members until after tryouts.  Please do not try to change your schedule until after tryouts. Once it is confirmed that you are on the Team, meet with your counselor to get your schedule changed.  If your schedule does not support you being able to get to practice at 2:30, please email Head Coach, Dodge Rees at dodge.rees@nhycstaff.org to work out a solution.
