9/24/22 Sports Update

We want to update everyone on our goal of bringing back competitive sports to Pleasanton Middle School.

Basketball
At this time we are in the process of hiring an 8th grade boys basketball coach! Our hope is that he will be cleared to coach for the first day of tryouts scheduled for next Monday, September 26th from 3:15 - 4:30pm in the PMS Gym.

On Friday, Sept. 23rd I was able to interview a candidate for the 7th grade boys basketball position. We are in the process of onboarding the candidate but they will not be cleared by Monday. So 7th grade boys basketball tryouts will be postponed until we are able to clear our coach. We will keep you updated.

At this time, we still do not have a candidate to coach 6th grade boys basketball. Because we do not have a coach, we will be postponing tryouts until we can secure a coach.

If you are interested in coaching middle school basketball we have 4 teams to fill:
6th grade boys and girls
7th grade girls
8th grade girls

You can find an application here Edjoin.com or email [email protected]

Tentative Start Dates if we can get coaches cleared:
Boys Basketball
Tryouts/Practice - Week of Sept 26th 8th Grade Boys Only
Games Begin - Week of Oct. 10th
Girls Basketball 
Tryouts/Practice - Week of Oct. 24th
Games Begin - Week of Nov. 14th

Athletic Clearance 
We have set up an account with Home Campus to house our Athletic Clearance Information. This is the same website both Amador Valley and Foothill high schools use for their Athletic Clearance Information. To sign your athlete up follow the directions below:

1. Login to this link-  Home Campus 
2. Create an account
3. Once you have created an account you will enter "Pleasanton MS" in the "School" menu.
4. Select "22-23" School Year
5. Select the sport you would like to tryout for. At this time Boys and Girls Basketball and Boys and Girls Cross Country are the only sports available for the fall.
6. Fill out the informational tabs by providing your athletes and family information.
7. On step three, "Medical" you will be able to download the PMS Physical Form. This form must be filled out by your doctor and include a medical office stamp. If you do not include the medical stamp, the physical form will not be valid.
8. Consent signature sections. Please have you and your athletes read and sign each consistent signature section. You do not need to print these forms out. 
9. File Upload - You will need to upload a copy of your physical form after you have completed your students athletic physical. If your athlete has not done an athletic physical yet, you can skip this part and log back in once the physical has been completed. All physical forms will need to be uploaded to Home Campus. Do not bring the physical forms to the athletic office. Athletes will not be cleared to tryout until they have an uploaded physical form on file. 
10. Once you have completed the forms, you will receive an email from Home Campus letting you know you have completed the appropriate paperwork. Remember, if you have not uploaded your physical form, you are not cleared to try out.

We are excited to offer competitive sports again at Pleasanton Middle School!

Go Panthers!!
