What is the process for my middle school child to participate in JV/Varsity sports?
First, check the list of sports available to your middle school student for that sport's season. A list of sports can be found on WITS and on the District’s website. After your child has selected a sport, he/she must obtain a purple Athletic Placement Process sheet from their middle school 's front office. Once that sheet is completed by the parent and the student, it must be returned to school, main office in a timely manner. It will then be forwarded to the Athletic Director for the district for review. You child will then be notified if they are qualified to continue the process.
What is the process for my middle school child to participate in modified sports?
First, check the list of modified sports available to your middle school student for that sport's season. A list of sports can be found on WITS and on the District's website. After your child has selected a sport, he/she must obtain a "Request for Playing Modified Interscholastic Sports" form at your child's middle school.
What happens next for students who play a modified sport?
Every child who wishes to participate in a modified sport must have their physical and health history information verified by the school nurse. A sports contract aka “tri-fold” is mailed home with a letter from the Athletic Director. This form must be filled out and signed by the parent and the student and handed into their school nurse. If approved, the student then may try out for their sport. If not approved, that student will not be allowed to participate. Their physical must be up to date (within the past year) in order to be approved.
Start dates/times are posted on the high school websites.
Please note: Fall verifications are only made with summer school nurses during summer school hours Monday-Thursday
During the school year for winter and spring sports, your child can bring their sports contract to their school nurse during a free period.
Where can I get an "Sports Contract" ("tri-fold")? Can I print it out from WITS?
A Sports Contract can be picked up at any high school main office/athletic office or at the district office. It is mailed to the athlete’s home after a Request for Playing a Modified Sport has been filled out and returned. At this time, it is not available on line.

During the school year, a child can stop down to his/her school nurse and drop off their paperwork.
