Bears News · Winter Sports Quickly Approaching


At William Chrisman, athletics means more than just playing on a team. Participation in a sport means developing meaningful relationships with teammates and coaches, learning good sportsmanship, teamwork, and creates a solid foundation for a healthy, active lifestyle.  Click here for a video with more information about the upcoming season.

With many of our fall activities drawing to a close, coaches and athletes are looking forward to the winter season with both girls and boys basketball, boys and girls wrestling, and girls swim all starting within the next few weeks.  You must have a current physical uploaded and all sections completed/cleared in Privit before you will be allowed to participate in practice (click here for instructions on how to upload your physical).
