First Day of Practice is One Month Away!

The first day of practice is really just around the corner.  This means that if you have been running so far this summer you are doing awesome!  Keep it up.  If you haven't been running so far, it is time to get going.  You only have one month to get in shape before the season starts.

In addition to running as much as possible over the next month, you also need to think about getting cleared for practice.  Here is what you need to know abour athletic clearance:

First Day of Practice:  Monday, August 24th at 2:30 (meet under the Sky Bridge)


You are not able to come to practice until you have your athletic clearance. 

 Steps to Getting Cleared:   

1.  Get a physical.  If you got a physical at school in June, this will count or this year’s physical.  If not, then either make an appointment with your family doctor or go to one of the walk-in medical clinics in the area (there is one by the Benson Fred Meyer).  These do not require an appointment.  Bring the physical form with you so that the doctor can sign it.


2.  Fill out all parts of the clearance packet.  Have your parents sign it in all or the required places.

 3.  Pay your sports fee ($75, or $37.50 if you qualify for free and reduced lunch) and buy your ASB card ($30).  You can do this with Ms. Koch in the Lindbergh Commons.  If money is an issue, be sure to tell me so I can figure out a way to cover the costs.  I don’t want money to keep anyone from getting cleared.  Clearance days at School:  August 17th – August 21st 

4.  Bring your physical filled-out clearance packet (signed by the doctor and your parents) AND the receipts from your Sports Fee and ASB Card to Ms. Clark in the attendance office.  She will check off your stuff and officially clear you.
