What do I do if my physical expires during my season of play?
If your physical is not expired on the first day of practice, you are eligible to participate for that season. You will need an updated physical for the next season of play. Example: If a season begins on 8/12 and your physical expires 9/1, you are eligible to participate for that Fall season. You would be ineligible to participate in winter season without an updated physical.

What is a health history update form and what do I need it for?
A health history update form is to be turned in for each sport season that you participate.

Will I be notified if my son/daughter is cleared for practice?
