UPDATE: The Southwest High School baseball tryouts have been cancelled. Coach Mountain would like to meet with players tomorrow, Monday, March 16, at 3:15 at SWHS. We’re working on a specific location, so watch for email updates.

Since there will be no school from March 17 through Spring Break, the soonest any baseball activities will take place will be April 6. We will keep you posted as we learn more.
Stay safe and healthy!


Spring Sports Registration:

Spring Sports Registration is taking place at Southwest High School on Monday, February 24th, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The school athletic department staff will be located in the Laker Commons collecting Eligibility Packets and helping students/parents complete spring sports registration.

If you cannot attend Registration night, you can drop completed paperwork in the safety deposit box located outside the athletic offices. You can do so any time prior to the start of athletic participation. As a reminder, the Athletic Participation Fee is $75.

Here is the link to the registration and eligibility forms: https://athletics.mpls.k12.mn.us/uploads/eligbrochure_10_29_2019_20_2.pdf
