Middle School Girls' Basketball

There are two teams at the middle school.  The middle school varsity team will be coached by Coach Howard and the middle school junior varsity team will be coached by Coach Henry.

Open gym schedule:

Open gyms are not mandatory practices.  However, it will give the girls a chance to practice the skills they will be evaluated on during try-outs.  Open gyms will be held at the middle school gym.  Please dress appropriately.

October 4, 11, 18, 20, 25 and 27 from 2:45pm-5:00pm
November 2, 7, 9, 14, and 16 from 2:45pm-5:00pm

Try-Out Schedule:

Friday, November 18 from 5:00pm-7:00pm

Saturday, November 19 from 11:00am–1:00pm


If needed, we will extend try-outs…

Monday, November 21 from 2:45pm – 5:00pm

Tuesday, November 22 from 2:45pm – 5:00pm


Players will be evaluated during these practices.  At the end practice on November 19, players will be given a letter that will let them know if they have made the team.  Those players that made the team will be expected to be at practice on November 21 at 2:45pm.

However, playing time must be earned throughout the season. Players are not guaranteed playing time just because they have made the team.


Practice and Game Schedule:

Players that make the team will be required to be at practice.  All practices are mandatory unless excused by the coach prior to practice.  Practices will be held after school from 2:45pm to 5:00pm or from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Parents will need to provide transportation for players for the evening practices.  If you make the team, please make sure you can keep your commitment to the
coaches and your teammates.

The practice and game schedule will be posted on the West Perry Middle School Girls Basketball Webpage. The link for the webpage is below:


Required Paperwork for Try-Outs:

Students must have completed the physical packet and have it on file prior to attending any mandatory practices.  Physicals are not required to participate in open gyms prior to the season.

All paperwork may be picked up in the Middle School office.

All players must have a physical prior to try-outs on Friday, November 18.  Physicals are not necessary for participation in open gym dates prior to try-outs.

  • If you participated in a sport at West Perry during the 2022 fall season and you were not injured, you only need to complete the Parent Recertification.
  • If you participated in a sport at West Perry during the 2022 fall season and you were injured, you must complete the Recertification by Licensed Physician.  Injured means that you had to see a doctor for any injury including but not limited to “concussions”.
  • If you did not participate in a sport at West Perry, you must complete the entire “2022-2023” Athletic Participation Booklet.

Physical night at the High School is on Thursday, November 3rd at 6 PM. Anyone planning on attending will need to register before with Amanda Davis ([email protected]) or Karen Magee ([email protected]), our high school and middle school nurses. The cost is $35. They will need to bring section 6 of the CIPPE form to be filled out.  As always, athletes are welcome to get physicals elsewhere and give them to the coaching staff at open gym.  All physicals must be completed and signed by the doctor on or after June 1, 2022.
