August 2013

Dear Rising 9th-12th Grade Students, Parents and Guardians:

I hope your summer vacation has been one of good health, relaxation and quality time with family and friends.

I want to update you about preparations for our 2013 fall athletics season. The opening day of tryouts for the High School varsity girls and boys soccer teams has changed. Pre-Season Practice for Varsity Athletics will begin on Friday, August 23rd at 9:00 am instead of Monday, August 26th. There will be no practice on Monday, August 26th; however, there will be practices on:

  • Tuesday, August 27th
  • Wednesday, August 28th
  • Thursday, August 29th
  • Friday, August 30th
  • Saturday, August 31st

On Friday, August 23rd, student-athletes will be provided with a schedule of practice times for the remainder of the pre-season.

Please remember that all student-athletes must submit the School Medical Form (both sides completed and signed by a health care provider and parent) and the Athletic Health History Form (to be completed by a parent) before Friday, August 23rd. Please complete and mail these forms as soon as possible. Only those athletes who have been cleared by the School Nurse will be allowed to participate in pre-season training. Completed forms can be mailed to:

The Waldorf School of Garden City
225 Cambridge Avenue
Garden City, NY  11530
Attn: Mrs. Cathy Gorman, School Nurse

Please be advised that Mrs. Gorman will only be available to clear and approve medical and athletic forms on Friday, August 23rd at 9:00 am. Should you have any immediate questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Gorman at (516) 742-3434, ext. 324.

The coaching staff cannot allow any student-athlete to participate in any pre-season training unless he/she has been signed-off by the School nurse. Also, be advised that a student-athlete cannot represent our School unless he/she meets the required number of training dates. Failure to do so may jeopardize his/her consideration for a final roster spot.

I am delighted to announce that one of the original members of the United States Women’s National Soccer Team, Kim Wyant will be the Head Coach of Waldorf’s Varsity Girls Soccer Team this fall! Coach Wyant comes to Waldorf with a remarkable playing and coaching resume. As a player, she was the first goalkeeper in the history of the United States Women’s National Soccer Team. Most recently, she was an assistant women’s soccer coach at New York University. For more information about Coach Wyant, click here.

Game schedules are also now up on the School's website:

Thank you for your cooperation and for your continued support of the athletics program at the Waldorf School of Garden City.

Sincerely,

Shane Flanagan
Director of Athletics
The Waldorf School of Garden City
