Athletics Tryout Dates and Information

*Fall Sports 2017: September 8-15, 2017

Tryouts for all sports occur during the first week of practice each season. Some JWMS teams have require "cuts" and other teams do not. Cuts are required due to the large number of athletes interested and the limited number of available spots on each team. After tryouts, athletes will be notified by their coach as to whether or not they have made the team. If an athlete is cut from one team at the end of tryouts, they may join another team that has room to accept athletes.

Schedules...... Available on the "JW schedules" link on the left side of this page, under quick links..  

See link above. You can see all teams schedules on the RSchool Webpage.
You can "subscribe" to be notified of your child's games, practices and any changes.

Princeton Public Schools Athletic Mission and Values
The mission of athletics in PPS reflects the mission of the district as a whole. Our commitment is to prepare our student-athletes to lead lives of joy and purpose, to foster their development of knowledge and character, to promote a sense of pride within our community, and a sense of achievement among our teams. Our mission is supported by the following four values.

Joy of Sport
There is a joy in the act of playing a sport; there is a joy in the physical and mental rigor of preparing for competition; and there is a joy in being a part of something larger than ourselves- in contributing to a team. We want our young people to experience that joy, and we are committed to an athletic program that supports the fun of play, the fulfillment of hard work and the camaraderie among teammates and coaches.

Education through Athletics
Learning is essential to athletics. Our fields and our courts are an extension of our classrooms. Our program is designed to teach our young people the skills, strategies and training methods that will allow them to optimize their athletic performance. Our program is designed, as well, to help our young people optimize their performance in life. We want them to be people of character-able to win with grace, lose with pride and compete in a way that honors the game and their opponent. We want to teach them what it means to lead and what it means to follow. We want them to reflect after every performance and use setbacks as the stepping stones to future success. We are committed to an athletic program that inspires students to set challenging goals and to achieve them. We are committed to a program that helps our students learn the important lesson of how to balance athletics with academics and the many other commitments they have in their lives.

Community Pride
Sports can be a catalyst for the creation of community. The athletic program of PPS strives to bring together students, staff, parents, alumni and town residents. We value the support of partners throughout our community. Moreover, through their engagement, we seek to build a sense of pride in our programs and in our young people.

Athletic Achievement
We honor the long tradition of athletic accomplishment in PPS. We are committed to providing every student who wants to participate in our athletic program, the coaching, equipment and support to do so. We actively celebrate the excellence of our athletes and our programs. We believe that our achievements in athletics are reflective of the excellence we value in all of our endeavors as a district.
