Q - What is the philosophy of modified sports?

The modified level prepares athletes for the JV level and beyond. The philosophy of modified is to maximize participation and playing time for students. This level focuses on the growth of basic skills and sportsmanship. We will make every attempt to include as many students as possible on teams.

Q - How do I sign my child up for participation in a sport?

Your child can enroll in a sport by completing the FamilyID registration process. This is a medical questionnaire that determines your child medical eligibility for a season. This must be completed within 30 days of the start of the season. Also, students participating in multiple seasons (Fall, Winter, Spring) must complete a new registration for each season. In addition, a student must have a current physical (within 1 year) on file with the school nurse.

Q - What is Selection Classification?

The Advanced Placement Process is used to determine a student-athlete's readiness to compete at a higher level of competition. The purpose of this program is to permit the accelerated student-athlete the opportunity to participate safely at the appropriate level of competition. We use the following process to determine a student's readiness:

  • The head coach recommends athlete to the Athletic Director
  • The head coach completes a skill rating of the athlete
  • The physician completes a maturity screening of the athlete
  • Team rosters are reviewed to determine if another athlete will be displaced if the student is allowed to play up
  • The social-emotional maturity of the athlete is assessed
  • The athlete is required to pass the physical tests outlined in section classification

Q - How are students transported to events?

Student-athletes are required to ride district transportation to and from athletic events. In the event that a unique circumstance necessitates a parent to drive their child, a note is required to the Athletic Office in advance.
