2016 Middle School Football

           The middle school football team will be starting practice this summer before school starts. This letter is to inform you of upcoming dates and important information related to the 2016 7th and 8th grade seasons. We are looking forward to any current 6th or 7th grader coming out for the team.

One of the most important things to do to prepare for the upcoming season is for your student to have a PHYSICAL DATED AFTER APRIL 15th 2016. It is a MHSAA policy that all students have a sports physical after the April date for them to participate in practice. Please use the attached form when you get the sports physical at your local doctor. Some doctors use their own form and these forms sometimes do not have everything that the state requires to be on the physical form.   Physicals will be available at the HS on June 7th for $20 from 5pm-6pm
