Currently, middle school sports will not be offered as long as students are in remote-learning. Once District 11, in conjunction with state and county officials, determine that it is safe for students to come back to buildings to learn, sports can resume. We are working on a schedule and plan for when that happens and will communicate more when decisions have been made. We appreciate your patience during this trying time; things can always change, so please keep checking this page for updated information. Communication will be sent out via BlackBoard and email, too. We will always keep the safety of our student-athletes at the forefront of what we do. When we have in-person activities, all student-athletes will go through a screening form before each practice. Coaches will go through this process more with their teams.
As we get closer to students returning to in-person learning, we are requiring all families to update student physicals, emergency cards, and turn in completed, signed in-person waivers. Those forms are available in the documents portion of the website or through pick-up at the school. In order to streamline the process, you are able to submit scanned and signed forms to our athletic director at firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage you to submit these forms electronically if at all possible, but you are able to drop them by the school if you cannot send them electronically. Please do this as soon as possible as students will not be able to be in in-person activities until we have all of those forms on file. Thank you!
REQUIREMENTS FOR PARTICIPATION –
Students must complete five practices before they are allowed to compete in a game or meet. All students who wish to participate in interscholastic athletics are expected to maintain grades of Cs or better in all of their classes in order to compete. Grades are checked weekly.
Prior to the first practice, athletes must turn in to the payment window:
• The yellow CHSSA Statement by Physician and Parent for Athletic Participation card which requires a physician signature indicating that the student has passed a physical within the year and a parent signature indicating insurance coverage. Yellow cards are good for one calendar year.
• The blue Emergency Information/Consent for Emergency Treatment for Interscholastic Activity Injuries card. This must be filled out prior to each sport.
• The District athletic fee. Athletic fees are waived for each sport this year.
