Regulations for students in grades 7 and 8 to participate on Varsity or JV Athletic Team
The Athletic Placement Process is a process for screening students to determine their readiness to compete in high school level interscholastic athletic competition by evaluating their physical maturity, fitness and skill. The student may be placed at the appropriate level of competition which should result in increased opportunity, a fairer competitive environment, reduced injury and greater personal satisfaction. The intent of this program is to provide for students in grades 7 through 12 to safely participate at an appropriate level of competition based upon readiness rather than age and grade. Students going out for modified teams DO NOT need to go through this process.
Prior to tryouts, students will have to complete the following:
Print and complete student/parent portion of the athletic placement packet (personal information and parent signature forms).
Athletic Placement Process Packet: (Do not hand in until entire packet is ready)
The athlete must get his/her physical fitness scores from his/her physical education teacher.
