    Wilcox High School Plan to Increase Opportunities for Girls' Participation in Sports

    INCREASE FRESHMEN GIRL PARTICIPATION

    In an effort to increase girls participation in sports, Wilcox High School is committed to the creation of freshmen teams where sufficient numbers and competition exist. We encourage freshmen girls to try out for sports even if they have no experience and/or did not attend summer workouts. Wilcox High School  will not cut freshmen girls from these teams based on their level of skill. To remain eligible, all athletes must continue to meet all CCS, Wilcox High School and team requirements.
