The J. Taylor Finley Middle School early winter sports season will kick off on Monday, November 7 for the seventh and eighth grade boys’ basketball teams and the girls’ volleyball team.
Officially known as Winter-I (New York State middle schools have separate early and late winter seasons designated as I and II), dozens of Finley students are expected to participate in tryouts and ultimately earn spots on the three teams.
To be eligible for a tryout, students must have submitted an updated physical exam report with the Finley nurse and be cleared for participation. They must also submit a parent permission slip.
