Interscholastic Athletic Programs

The district offers a full range of interscholastic sports. Programs for students in grades 7-12 normally require attendance at practice five or six days per week for 2 to 2.5 hours each practice. There is a selection process for teams that involve competition with other schools in our league and section.


Registration for summer physicals begins May 8. Sports physicals are June 27 and July 2, 8am-Noon. Click here to register.

Students will receive information about team sign-ups in their physical education classes. Sign-ups begin 30 days prior to the start of the sports season.

Students entering Grade 7 who wish to participate in a fall sport will receive information in their sixth-grade elementary physical education class in May. New students who enter during the summer and wish to participate in sports should call the Athletic Office and schedule a summer physical with the school medical provider. This physical will meet the requirements for the entire school year.

Please note: If your child is transferring from another school and participated in interscholastic sports in his or her previous school, please complete this form and bring it to the school when registering your child. 



We will hold school sports physicals in the summer each year. This enables all of our students interested in athletics to be prepared for each sport season for the full school year. A physical less than one year old at the beginning of the sport season is acceptable.

Student athletes who need a school sports physical should log on to the Family ID site here.

Students should report to the High School cafeteria using the auditorium doors. Please refer to the Family ID site at the link above for the last day to register for a physical.

Pre-Season Meetings

Each coach holds a preseason meeting before the start of the season. The coach will check medical eligibility forms provided by the Nurse’s Office and allow only those students who are cleared by the nurse to begin practices. Coaches will provide practice schedules on the first day of practice. Coaches will also present expectations, goals, and objectives.
