All Fall Athletes
Mandatory Athletic Registration Meeting

JULY 18, 2018               SMALL GYM

6:30 – 7:00                    ALL ATHLETES 6-12 MEET IN SMALL GYM
7:00 -  7:30                    ATHLETES MEET WITH THEIR FALL COACHES
Dear Fall Athlete and Parents:

We are having a mandatory athletic registration meeting to kick off the 18-19 athletic season. The purpose of this meeting is to ensure all proper paperwork is on file for student-athlete participation, review concussion protocol as mandated by state legislation, preview information as required by IHSA law, and last to meet with Fall Coaches to review the upcoming season.

Per our handbook, all students must be registered for school prior to beginning their athletic participation. It is important that high school athletes are registered so they are ready to start practice as their seasons begin before school starts (Football August 1, Golf August 6, and Volleyball August 8).

Students and parents should be present at this meeting as both parties need to sign waivers and documents for student-athletes to be eligible.  As required by state law, students must have on file an IHSA Pre-Participation Physical Form that has occurred within the past 13 months or the student-athlete is automatically ineligible to participate in practices or games.

All documents and forms to be signed for student-athlete eligibility will be handed out at this meeting.  In addition, all forms can be found on our athletic website at http://il.8to18.com/scalesmound.  Please contact me with questions you have on this meeting.
