- ATHLETIC SPORTS PARTICIPATION EVALUATION
Any athlete competing in any school sponsored summer athletic program must have an updated physical to participate. A physical is valid from May 1st -April 30 of a calendar year. You may visit your primary care or a chiropractor to obtain your physical.
Approximately two-six weeks prior to the season, respective coaches will announce times and places for informational and sign-up meetings in the school bulletin. It is important that prospective athletes attend these meetings and sign-up, so that all paperwork can be verified, and athletic eligibility can be determined prior to the first day of try-outs. It is the responsibility of the student-athlete to complete the on-line clearance per season of sport so that eligibility can be determined and return signed confirmation form, physical form, and copy of medical insurance. Student-athletes who miss scheduled try-outs because of incomplete on-line clearance or lack of physical exam may miss the opportunity to try-out.
All incoming freshmen are automatically eligible to participate at the beginning of Fall Sports. Each subsequent grading period will determine athletic eligibility. All students must maintain a 2.0 Grade Point Average with no more than one F grade in each grading period.
Before starting practices/try-outs ALL NEW ATHLETES must attend the MANDATORY NEW ATHLETE and PARENT meeting. A meeting will be scheduled the WEDNESDAY prior to a sports season beginning. Please check the school bulletin or website for dates and times.
The Athletic Department is anxious that returning and incoming student-athletes get off to a positive start with both their academic and athletic careers. If we can answer any questions, or offer any encouragement, please call us at 331-7666, or drop by our office located in the South Gym and meet us.
