Rising eighth-grader Dyson Elam is expected to be a major contributor for the WCMS basketball team during the 2020-21 school year. Tryouts and workouts are being announced for all WCMS teams.

Tennessee is gradually reopening and that includes sports.

Over the next several weeks, Warren County Middle School is holding tryouts for nearly all its sports teams as attention turns to the 2020-21 school year.

“We are excited to get things going again,” said WCMS athletic director Betsy McBride. “It will be difficult following all the guidelines, but we know it is necessary in order to keep everyone safe.”

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, spectators will not be allowed at indoor workouts, or near outdoor facilities. WCMS officials ask spectators to please be respectful of these guidelines. Students at a Warren County School may try out for any WCMS sport except basketball.
