All Round Rock students interested in trying out for one of our 2016 Baseball teams must attend the tryout meeting on Wednesday, December 2nd in 400 Media Room after school at 4:15. Tryouts must be in attendance in order to sign up for the coming tryouts. Any tryout that has a conflict with their schedule and cannot attend the meeting should see Coach Carter in Portable 5A, or Coach Kocurek in Room 317 to sign up for tryouts as soon as possible before school. Players who walk up without having attended the tryout meeting or meeting personally with Coach Kocurek or Coach Carter will NOT be allowed to try out.
