2020 Spring Athletics Information

Dear Parents and Students,

The EDS spring athletic season is just around the corner. Below is important information about the season.   

Preseason parent/coach/player meeting – Monday, February 3 in the EDS Gym at 6:00 pm. While it is not mandatory, we strongly encourage you to attend.  The meeting will begin in the gym with about 10 minutes of information and updates on the athletic department.  Then each coach will hold a separate meeting for the various spring programs.

You can find all EDS athletic information such as schedules and coaches’ contact information on the EDS athletic website at www.edspanthers.com.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 706-261-0111 or jcohen@edsaugusta.com

The first day of practice/tryouts for all teams is Tuesday, 2.4.20.  Tryout dates are February 4, 5, and 6th (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday). I will email all participants and families the results of tryouts on Friday, February 7 after 3:30 p.m. All students in the middle school are eligible to participate in an EDS spring team.

Transportation

If at all possible, the EDS bus will transport all teams to their practice or game, however there may be times that we will need to organize a parent carpool to a practice/game.  I will email all parents in the event of needing assistance in transporting the team to practice or game.  Pick up will be at the practice/ game site except for Track & Field which will be transported back to the Walton Way Campus.
