A sport physical completed after March 1st of any given year will be valid through the entire following school year. Sport physicals expire at the end of each school year, and must be renewed. Athletes are ineligible to participate without a sport physical on file.

For more information on physicals please contact our Health Assistant at ext. 1409
There is a participation fee of $25 per sport season, per athlete, that must be paid to the main office. There is a cap of $100 per family, per year. These fees help provide equipment for sport teams, pay game officials, and provide transportation to and from contests.
Students are issued a uniform free of charge and are expected to return the uniform in good condition. If the uniform is not returned or returned damaged, student will be charged for replacement of the uniform.
Students are expected to adhere to all student conduct policies, including bus rules, while participating in athletics. Eligibility sheets will be issued to each participating student and will be turned in to coaches every week. There must be no D’s or F’s in order for the student to play.
**Any time a student is in ACE for the entire day(s) for disciplinary action, they may not participate in after-school activities, including club meetings, evening dances, afternoon PBIS incentives, and athletics, included practice and/or competition, on the day(s) they are in ACE.
Examples: Johnny is in ACE for 3 days, Monday-Wednesday. He must leave campus at the end of the day for all 3 days and may not participate in any after-school activities.
If the student’s last day in ACE is Friday, he/she may participate in a Saturday field trip or athletic tournament; however, if they have missed previous days of athletic practice due to their disciplinary action, the coach could take that into consideration in the decision to allow them to compete.
If the student has Friday ACE and Monday ACE, they may not participate in a Saturday field trip or athletic tournament because their suspension is not complete.
