Physical Information

If your child had a valid sports physical on file with the Athletic Department for the 2019-2020 school year (must have been completed April 15th of 2019 or later), then just complete the MHSAA Health Questionnaire in the link below.  Complete this form rather than obtaining a new physical. Again, the completion of this form takes the place of obtaining a new physical as long as you had a valid physical last year. The MHSAA Health Questionnaire can be found here: MHSAA Health Questionnaire

If your child does not have a valid physical on file, then they must obtain a physical from a physician.  The completed physicals can be turned in 1 of the 2 ways listed below.  You can find a copy of the physical form here: Physical Form

This form can be turned in one of two ways:

  1. Turn into their coach prior to first day of practice
  2. Turn into the Main Office at the High School prior to first day of practice

*Please make sure both sides of the form are completely filled out and all required signatures are filled in.

Registration:

Most coaches have set up a google classroom or email chain for their current student-athletes. It is highly encouraged you contact the coach and let them know you will be attending practices / tryouts. Coaches can also confirm if there is any information needed or missing prior to the first practice. If you plan to attend bowling tryouts you MUST register by contacting Coach Clark prior to tryouts.
