2023/2024 West Middle School Athletics Information Sheet
All WMS Athletics information can be found at: https://bcwestmsathletics.com/
Final Forms: The BC Athletics department uses a platform called Final Forms to register all athletes for our athletic programs. Parents will need to first create a profile and then register their child under their account through Final Forms. Once registered on Final Forms, athletes can select the sports that they are interested in participating in each year. When a sport is selected, families will begin receiving communication from the head coaches of each sport as the season approaches. If a sport is not selected on an athlete’s account, they will NOT receive any communication from the coach. Please select a sport that you may have interest in so that you don’t miss out on communications. You can unselect a sport at any time if you decide later not to participate.
