Frequently Asked Questions
Where do I turn in all of the paperwork?
Please return all forms to the main office Attention: Annemarie Hutson.
What are sports physicals?
Sports physicals are a quick check by a doctor to see if it?s safe for you to play sports. They are valid for two years. Be sure to schedule a sports physical early with your doctor/physician to ensure that your child has a valid sports physical before the season starts. Students cannot attend practice or play in a game until they have a valid sports physical that clears them for participation. You do not have to go to YOUR doctor in order to get a valid physical.
When are the games and where are they held?
Games for all sports are on Saturdays ranging from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. When the District makes the schedules, they will be passed out to students, and posted on the website. The locations vary every year.
How many sports can I play?
A student can only participate in one sport per season. One in the fall, one in the winter, and one in the spring.
When and where are practices?
Practices are held twice a week after school. Exact practice dates, and locations will be determined at the beginning of the school year by the coaches.
