Before Tryouts

All students interested in participating in any interscholastic athletic activity must have the following forms on file with the school nurse (you only need to submit these forms once each school year):

Incoming 6th Graders

The Certificate of Child Health Exam form is required for all incoming 6th Grade students and can serve as the athletic physical. Make sure that your physician checks the interscholastic sports participation box.

7th & 8th Graders

For students entering 7th and 8th grade, the athletic physical form is the IESA Pre-Participation Examination form. In any case, the physical must be less than a year old.

Concussion Information

Concussions are common, particularly if you play a contact sport. But every concussion injures your brain to some extent. This injury needs time and rest to heal properly. Most concussive traumatic brain injuries are mild, and people usually recover fully. Below is a Concussion Fact Sheet for parents/guardians.
