Dear Patriot and Parents/Guardians,

As Athletic Director at Carroll High School, I would like to welcome everyone back to another exciting year of Carroll High School Athletics! For those new to our family, welcome to the home of the Patriots!  Our faculty, administration, and coaching staff are very excited about the opportunity to work with you in these all-important high school years.  A number of you have chosen to be involved with athletic teams while at Carroll.  The following information outlines requirements to participate, including academic eligibility, athletic forms, conditioning times for fall sports, and fall tryout information.
