Online registration for spring sports is now OPEN. Spring sports begin on Monday, February 25, the first day we return from mid-winter break. Spring sports include baseball, softball, men's soccer, men's and women's track and field, women's golf, women's tennis, women's badminton (KingCo sport), men's lacrosse and women's lacrosse (non-WIAA sport). 

 

Please REGISTER SOON by going to the WHS website and choose "Register for Athletics" from the drop-down menu under "Athletics" and follow the instructions to register on FamilyID. Both parent AND student electronic signatures are required.
