Spring Sports Information

Spring sports are starting a little later than normal this year due to the extended winter season.  March 1 spring registration opens for all spring activities. 

It is very helpful for planning to have your registration complete at least three weeks prior to the start of the season to receive information on meetings, pre season open gym opportunities, apparel orders and tryout information. By registering it allows for coaches to have access to your emails for communication purposes. To register, you must have a physical on file with the school. The physical must be current in the past 3 years. 

Spring sport guidelines as they relate to COVID-19 will be communicated to participants before the start of the season and posted on the individual websites.
