A. Athletic Contract
All students playing at any competition level must sign an Athletic Contract; parents/guardians must also sign the Contract. Coaches will issue a copy on or before the first day of practice and students must return them signed before they can participate. Students must live up to the terms of the Contract or face possible suspension or dismissal from a team.
All students participating in extra-curricular athletics and their parents/guardians are required to attend the pre-season information meeting. Any student or parent/guardian who is unable to attend the meeting must meet with the Athletic Coordinator (or designee) before the student may participate in practices or games.
For additional details regarding eligibility to participate in athletics, please refer to the Athletic Code of Conduct. Be advised that the Athletic Code of Conduct may be updated to meet needs and requirements.
B. Athletic Physicals
All students participating in interscholastic sports must have a physical before they are allowed to practice or try out for a team. Physicals are conducted by the school physician or by the student’s own family doctor. The physical is good for one calendar year. Any student who misses the scheduled physical exam must make arrangements with their own doctor to obtain a physical exam.
