Wakefield Athletics (Mission)

The Student Activities Office encourages a positive and enthusiastic environment where coaches can provide opportunities for student athletes to excel thru the teaching of life-long lessons in leadership, teamwork, discipline, sportsmanship and competitiveness.   Collaboratively, the activities office and coaching staff strive to promote our student athletes to develop and implement these life-long characteristics on and off the playing field. We value the “Wakefield Way” where we challenge our students to excel in Rigor, Relationships, Resilience, Responsibility, and Results. “The Wakefield student athlete will be able to excel in high school thru their experiences in Wakefield athletics; gaining experiences from the diversity, passion, learning from mistakes, academic importance, modeling good citizenship, self-esteem, and forming trusting relationships with coaches and teammates. Together, we can change the culture of “That’s Just Wakefield” to mean “We Are Wakefield” with PRIDE!

Winter sports tryouts begins November  6, 2017 and there is a minimum of 3 days for tryouts. It is imperative that students get physicals in early to Ms.Kigin to avoid long lines and disappointment. Ms.Kigin will be in Town Hall on October 31, November 1, 2, 3, and 4 during all three lunches.You can turn in your physical, or get your green clearance slip if she already has your physical. This means if you have already played a sport this fall, you must see Ms. Kigin again to get your “green clearance slip” Don’t be one of those 100 kids in line on November 6 who procrastinates; There is no extra time allowed to turn in this assignment!
