Middle School Sports Participation Procedure

The Athletic Department has developed a “Sign-Up Completion Slip – Gold Card” which each participating athlete must possess prior to the MHSAA Designated date for first practice, of their sport.

Sign up for middle school fall sports will begin Friday, June 02, 2017, during lunch and on-line.   Sign-ups will continue until the start of fall sports (please check with your student as they may have already signed up at school).  Summer Office hours:

June 12- June 16 (M-F) – 8:00 am-3:00 pm
June 19- June 22 (M-TH) – 7:30 am-5:00 pm
August 14- August 31 (M-F) – 8:00 am-3:00 pm

The first day of practice for fall sports is August 21 for football and cross country and August 28, 2017 for volleyball. 

This “Gold Card” will be issued to each athlete and/or parent upon completion of the sign up requirements and prior to any athlete being allowed to participate in tryouts, or, the first day of practice.  The former practice of allowing partial completion of sign up requirements, will not be allowed.
