Fall Sports Update

Sunday, July 19, 2020

PHYSICALS

On Friday, July 17, the MHSAA stated that fall sports are on as scheduled for the 2020-2021 school year. You can read the article HERE. For the 2020-21 school year, the MHSAA pre-participation sports physical requirement will be waived for students in any grade who received a valid physical for sports during the 2019-20 school year (one completed on or after April 15, 2019). These students and their parents/guardians will be required to complete the two-page MHSAA Sports Health Questionnaire. These must be signed by the student and parent/guardian and kept on file in the school.

Students who did not receive a sports physical in the 2019-20 school year or later must have a valid physical examination form on file. If a student is discovered to have participated without a valid physical on file, the student shall not be eligible to participate until a valid physical is on file. This includes tryouts for any sport.

DEAD WEEK

Fall sports are scheduled as normal right now. Football practice begins on August 10 and all other fall sports begin on August 12. Dead week begins August 1 and lasts through the start of the first practice for fall sports.
