NEW For 2018 - Forms Online 

The Wadsworth Athletic Office is excited to announce our partnership with 

Final Forms 

Final Forms is an online electronic forms application for Sports Participation & Team Signup that will enable parents and students to complete and file athletic forms electronicially.  Signing Up your child will only take about 10 mins and is MANDATORY for all students in grades 7 - 12 who plan on participating in athletics.  The entered information is stored season-to-season and from year-to-year, eliminating the need to enter the same info more than once.   The only form that you are still required to print, complete and return to the Athletic Department is the OHSAA Physical form (pages 3 & 4).  The physical form must be completed and signed by the doctor.  However, your doctor may require that you complete and print out page 1 of the physical form for them.  Please double check with your doctor.

To access Final Forms go to https://wadsworth-oh.finalforms.com

Student winter sport passes will be available in the WHS Athletic Office for $25 after November 19.  This pass will admit a student (K-12) to all 30+ home winter high school athletic events where admission is charged.  This includes boys and girls basketball, wrestling, gymnastics and swimming.

This averages out to costing less than $1.00 per event if all events are attended.

 

FOOTBALL RESERVED SEAT TICKETS

Football reserved seat season tickets are available for purchase in the middle two sections of the home bleachers at Art Wright Stadium.  Reserved tickets are $35 per seat and are good for all 5 home games.  Stop in to the Wadsworth High School Athletic Office to select from available seats.  The Grizzlies first home game for the 2019 season is August 30 vs. Highland (7:00 p.m.).  Call 330-335-1372 for more details.

 

FOOTBALL GENERAL ADMISSION ADULT PASSES

A new pass offered this fall is the adult general admission football pass.  These passes are available for purchase in the Wadsworth High School Athletic Office for $30.  This pass will admit one adult into all 5 home football games and reduce the need to stand in line to purchase tickets.  The Grizzlies first home game for the 2019 season is August 30 vs. Highland (7:00 p.m.).  Call 330-335-1372 for more details.

 

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.
