YOUTH BASKETBALL INFORMATION

Practice schedules have been distributed to all students.  If you need another copy, please email Mr. Clinton ( kclinton@now.k12.wi.us ) and he’ll send you one. Our tentative events schedule is on the back of the practice schedule.

YOUTH WRESTLING

Brookwood Youth Wrestling is every Monday & Thursday at 6:00 in the Elementary Gym!!

MASK INFORMATION

Although our district policy is that face coverings are optional, but recommended, parents and students need to understand that other districts have different rules.  Parents and students are expected to show respect for and follow other schools’ mask requirements.  If that is a problem, then we strongly suggest that you simply don’t attend events at schools whose making policies you don’t agree with.   At this time, we do know that masks will be mandatory for some events.  BEST BET - BRING A MASK TO ALL EVENTS, JUST IN CASE!

INFORMATION FROM THE WIAA

Since 2020, we have lost around 35% of WIAA officials.  More and more, we are faced with having to reschedule contests to different days or times just to ensure we have officials.  This is an alarming trend.  We are hoping to find additional officials for the following sports: football, volleyball, cross country, basketball, wrestling, baseball, softball, and track & Field.  You don’t have to be an expert; just someone who enjoys and understands the game and wants to help kids.  We will help you get registered, and we will find officials to help mentor you.  Plus, the money isn’t bad.  Contact Mr. Clinton here at school if you’re interested.
