VOLUNTEER ASST. GIRLS' LACROSSE COACHES

Wadsworth High School is seeking volunteer assistant girls' lacrosse coaches.  Interested candidates should contact head coach Mike Callow at attorneymikecallow [at] gmail [dot] com.

 

FOOTBALL RESERVED SEAT TICKETS

FALL STUDENT ATHLETIC PASSES

Student fall sport passes are available for purchase in the Wadsworth High School Athletic Office for $25.00.  This pass will admit a student (K-12) to all 31 home fall high school athletic events where gate admission is charged, including football, boys and girls soccer and volleyball.  This equals less than $1.00 per gate admission for a student who attends all 31 home fall athletic events.

 

ADULT ATHLETIC PASSES

Adult athletic passes are available for purchase in the Wadsworth High School Athletic Office for $75.00.  This "punch" pass will admit one adult to 20 home high school athletic events (except Football) where gate admission is charged.  The pass holder is permitted to get additional adults into a home event, but his/her pass will be "punched" the appropriate number of times to match the total of people admitted.  Once the 20 "punches" have been used up, a new pass would need to be purchased.  If the 20 "punches" do not get used up in the fall, this pass may also be used during the winter season.
