Athletics Update 8.5.21
Welcome back, Wildcats!
As the new 2021-22 school year approaches, we excited about the upcoming seasons. Last year was a great year with many accomplishments on and off the field. We had many region championships, state final fours, and team State Championships to add to the list. We are making progress and are certainly on the move again this year. We see great things to come for Westminster Athletics and look forward to how the Lord will use our student athletes and coaches to further His kingdom.
Westminster Schools of Augusta fields 17 interscholastic varsity sport teams (40 teams total), including, football, cheerleading, clay shooting sports, cross country, basketball, swimming, baseball, soccer, tennis, track and field and golf. It is the goal of our Athletic Department to impact our students and our community for God’s kingdom through the pursuit of excellence in the athletic arena.
Our fall sports include Varsity and Middle School football, Varsity and Middle School cheerleading, JV & Varsity clay shooting sports, Varsity and Middle School cross-country, Middle School tennis, and Middle School golf. Please visit our website for the tryout and start date listings for each sport.
We have many athletic opportunities and we encourage all students to participate. The Wildcat Way is a touchstone statement that we hope will describe our athletes as well as challenge them to be the very best they can be on and off the field or court. It states, “We honor Christ first. We expect the best from our teammates because we demand the best from ourselves. We reject complacency and outwork our opponents as we strive for success. We compete with uncompromising character and integrity at all times. We demonstrate an unwavering pursuit of excellence. We live the Wildcat Way.”
Athletic physical forms are available online under Athletics>Teams&Coaches. Please remember that all student-athletes must have a current physical and concussion form on file in the Athletic office BEFORE they are allowed to practice. Physicals are good for 365 days from the date of the physician's signature.
Now is the time to join the Booster Club! A Family Membership is only $185 for the entire year and among other benefits, provides free admission to all regular-season home athletic contests. Other membership levels are also available. Thanks to the efforts of the Booster Club over the past several years, numerous capital improvements have been made.
