    Are you interested in playing a sport at Eckstein in the Fall?
    2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR

    • We will offer girls soccer and ultimate Frisbee as fall sports.
    • Tryouts will be held the second week of school in September, and the season runs through the end of November.
    • Practices are on the Eckstein field after school (exact dates/times will depend on specific teams).
    • Games are on Saturdays.
    • All athletes must have a current physical on file along with the additional paperwork items completed in order to turn out. Paperwork is on the left column.

    We want to get a good idea of how many students are interested in order to recruit our coaches and prepare our facilities. We hope to start off strong in the fall with our regular seasons.

    Please click on this link to indicate your interest in playing fall sports: Fall Sports Survey

    Families can turn in their completed paperwork for 6th and 7th graders by emailing it to Mary Williams at mpwilliams@seattleschools.org or sending it to the school via U.S. mail.

     

    Playing Sports at Eckstein

    If your student is planning to play a fall sport, please be sure to complete the required physical early! It can be very difficult to schedule a physical in September. If you have any difficulty with paying for arranging transportation to a physical appointment, please contact Principal Rose directly who will help figure options out confidentially as we are committed to ensuring all students have access to tryouts.

    School sponsored sports include Girls’ Soccer and Co-Ed Ultimate Frisbee. Seattle Public Schools works to include as many students as possible, however, due to limited facility space and safety concerns, ‘cuts’ are sometimes still necessary. The Eckstein PTSA has generously provided funding for an extra assistant coach each season to maximize our ability to serve students. We will work to do everything we can do to encourage participation, but we do ask that parent/guardians support students through this process, should they be cut.

    All athletes must complete the forms below. Print, complete and return to main office before tryouts begin in order to participate. See individual sports for more forms.

     Special Olympics Unified Sports® is an inclusive sports program that combines an approximately equal number of Special Olympics athletes (individuals with intellectual disabilities) and partners (individuals without intellectual disabilities) on teams for training and competition. Team sports are about having fun, promoting physical health and bringing people together. Special Olympics Unified Sports® teams do all of that – and shatter stereotypes about intellectual disabilities in the process. Unified Sports is now offered throughout the world and has been a Special Olympics internationally sanctioned program since 1989.

    All Eckstein student athletes must turn in a Weekly Grade Report no later than each Wednesday to be eligible to play in that Saturday's game.

    Middle school athletics are supported by levy funding that is tied to academics, so this procedure is a requirement for all SPS athletes in all sports.
