Milton High School is offering 10 sports during the fall season with 25 levels of participation: coed cheerleading, boys cross country, girls cross country, coed field hockey, coed football, coed golf, boys soccer, girls soccer, coed swimming, and coed volleyball.

Tryouts for football will start on the third Friday in August and all other sports will start the following Friday.

Most teams end league competition in late October.

Tournament qualifications for varsity teams could have teams participating into November, and in the case of football, early December.

Football concludes its regular season on Thanksgiving Day.

The following is the schedule of Milton High fall sports tryouts, specifically the first three days. Future dates and times will be communicated by coaches. Students are required to attend all listed tryouts unless otherwise directed by the coach. Missed sessions may have an impact on a student’s chances of making the team.
