Students who are planning to participate in fall sports must have an updated sports physical. Physicals are good for two years so getting one now will be good for winter and spring sports as well. Softball practice will start August 9th. It is important to have physicals completed before this date so that students do not risk being ineligible for the first game (due to not participating in enough practices) Again, please try to have physicals completed by August 9th if you plan on participating in fall sports so that you can start the season on time.
