Boys Basketball Informational Meeting Letter

October 10, 2018

    Thank you for your interest in being part of the Spanish Fork Jr. High Basketball Team.  Being a member of this team requires a serious commitment of both time and effort. Those who make the team will be required to attend practices and games every night after school for two to three hours.  The basketball season will begin the first full week of November and continue through the first week of February. If you make the team you will be expected to be at every practice and game. If you are not able to make this commitment, please do not try out.

    In most cases, the Spanish Fork Jr. High Basketball Team follows the rules and regulations as outlined by the Utah High School Athletic Association.  Please read carefully the following rule regarding physical exams.

Utah High School Athletic Association new rule:

    Physical exams are required before you will be allowed to try out.  If you do not have a physical exam turned into Coach Carlson before tryouts begin, you will not be allowed to try out.  No exceptions. The papers that need to be filled out by your doctor can be found at the following link

    The only form that needs to be filled out is the Pre-Participation Exam Form.  If you make the team you will be expected to fill out the other forms.


    Utah High School Athletic Association states that a player on a sports team will maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average and have no more than one F to be able to participate.  Please work hard and keep your grades up.


    Tryouts will begin on Monday Nov. 5th immediately after school in the boys gym and will continue every night until the team has been selected.  Please do not schedule anything at this time. You will need to be at tryouts.

    I look forward to another awesome basketball season.  If you have any questions please contact me at

Thank you,

Coach Carlson
