News & Information

Practice/Tryout Schedule:


Participation in Winter Sports:  
IMPORTANT – to participate in athletics in the winter, an athlete must have had a physical within 13 months.  The Connecticut Association of Interscholastic Sports (CIAC) does note permit exceptions to this rule.  This is different than what is required for a student to return to school.  An athlete cannot participate in practices or tryouts without a recent physical, and clearance from our health office.  No exceptions.  

Health Office Hours for Athletic Clearance:
In order to participate in tryouts, each athlete must be cleared by the health office each season.  Please submit physical verification and other requisite paper work to the Health Office.  All papework can be found on our website – Click on “FORMS” found here:

This is required for new students, incoming 9th graders, and 11th graders.  If you'd like to take it at home, click on the below link.  Be sure to save your receipt/confirmation code.

*Athletic Advisory Council – This group was formed at the end of May, at the recommendation of the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC), the governing body for high school athletics.  E.O.’s committee is comprised of administrators, teachers, parents, coaches, medical doctors, PH.Ds (in specialized and relevant fields to athletics), and other medical professionals.  This group meets regularly to review guidelines and relevant information, and make decisions regarding E.O. Smith Athletic protocols.  This group determines what we can confidently and reasonably to do ensure the safest conditions for athletic participation.  There are a number of factors unique to E.O. Smith that make implementation most challenging.  This group works hard to make the right decisions.
