2017-2018 School Year: Important Information on Sports Physicals

June 8, 2017

A student must have a current physical on file in order to participate in sports, which begins on the first day of tryouts.  For cross country and track this would be the first official day of practice.  Additionally, if a students physical expires during the course of a sports season, the student must get an updated physical in order to continue participation.  It is important that you check your students physical to see when it expires (a physical is good for one calendar year from the date given).  Here is a list of sports and dates when physicals will be checked (If an updated physical is not on file the student will not be eligible to participate).  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Hampsey (champsey@sps186.org).
