WESTFIELD – If there is a little bit more spring in the step of local student-athletes, it may be due to some welcoming news for a number of spring sports teams.
On Monday night, the Westfield School Committee approved the start of several spring sports with modifications, including baseball, softball, boys volleyball, lacrosse, outdoor track and field, tennis, and unified track.
“I’m excited to work with the coaches and watch the athletes compete,” Westfield High School athletic coordinator Ryan Dunphy said.
The latest vote comes on the heels of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association’s decision to move forward with spring sports as planned.
The first day of tryouts for spring athletics will be Mon., April 26. The regular season will run from early May through mid-June with a tournament season to follow.
“I’m excited about the postseason too,” Dunphy said. “I think with the kids missing the opportunity last year, it will be good for (them) to get that playoff experience.”
Before any student can participate in tryouts, each participating student-athlete must have completed a family ID registration, received a physical and participated in impact/baseline concussion testing protocols.
Free physicals will be held April 13 at Westfield High School and April 14 at Westfield Technical Academy at 2 p.m. Appointments must be made by emailing Ms. Barnes at [email protected] or by calling the athletic office at 413-572-6484.
Visit the WPS Athletics Website for each sport’s respective coaching staffs and any other additional registration information.
If you have further questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to the Westfield Public Schools Athletic Department at 413-572-6484 or email athletic coordinator Ryan Dunphy at [email protected].
