Girls Tennis, Boys Golf, Girls Golf, Volleyball and Cross Country  are considered non-contact sports and some of these teams have started their seasons.  Football, Cheerleading, Boys Soccer and Girls Soccer continue to condition until a decision is made regarding contact sports.  
THE WATKINS MEMORIAL ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT EXTENDS THANKS TO LICKING MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEMS FOR PROVIDING FREE PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS TO WMHS AND WMS STUDENTS DURING THE MONTH OF JULY.   Thank you for allowing the parents/guardians of athletes and band members to participate in your free physicals.  We greatly appreciate the community support provided to our schools.  
As a reminder, every athlete must have a current physical  prior to trying out for a sport.  Final Forms registration is open and parents should update their information.    Please make sure you check the sport your athlete is participating in and sign all of the required forms.  Parents of 7th grade students and  new students to WMS or WMHS must register their athlete(s) on final forms.
