All those who are thinking about participating in athletics this year, be sure to register at GoTroubies.com under “Athlete Registration”.  That will take you to our Final Forms account where you can submit forms and let us know what teams you are interested in.  Everyone must indicate the teams they are interested in trying-out for Final Forms to ensure they get all of the communications related to that sport.  Even returning players must update their sports as that does not automatically roll-over from year to year.
