Boys Golf Tryout schedule August 7th:

To Prospective 2017 Glenbard West Boys Golfers,

The Glenbard West Boys Golf Team is highly competitive. The 2017 competition team will be composed of approximately 8-10 Varsity players and approximately 12 Freshmen-Sophomore players.  Previous golf team experience will be a primary factor in determining the 2017 golf team.  Tryout rounds and skills testing on August 7-9 will also be used to evaluate players.   Keeping appropriate numbers of freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors is also important in the selection process.   We will also support freshmen who wish to develop their golf skills but cannot earn a spot on the Freshmen-Sophomore competition team.

Anyone trying out on August 7th must have a current physical examination, not older than 13 months, on file with the school (turn in to the athletic office).  Before tryouts begin please pre-register your athlete through power school (see Glenbard West Web site for instructions). The user fee will be refunded if your son does not participate in a fall sport.   Call the Athletic office at 630-942-7550 with any questions.
