Important Athletic Information

Summer Conditioning Information

Any student participating in a sport that is having summer conditioning must have paperwork on file with the school.  The paperwork to be used for summer conditioning is the 2016-2017 paperwork (see link on this page).  If your sport does NOT have summer conditioning, there is no need to submit paperwork until after July 1st 2017 for the 2017-2018 school year.

Students 9th -11th that participated in a sport or submitted paperwork with Athletic Coordinator and were CLEARED for sports are good for summer conditioning unless physical expires.  If physical expires during summer, the student must have a new one on file to continue participation.  Please check with Athletic Coordinator or coach (as they get periodic updates) to see if your child is cleared prior to showing up for conditioning.  Anyone not cleared will be sent home.
