Are you planning on participating in a spring sport this year? The first day of Water Polo is Feb. 24 , all other spring sports begin March 2, 2020. We encourage students to turn in the needed paperwork to the Activities Office as soon as possible. Athletes will NOT be permitted to practice without a current physical and parent permission on file with the Activities Office.
If you have not turned in the needed paperwork, please do so as soon as possible. For a copy of the forms that must be completed, please click the link below:
As a reminder, all athletes must pay the $75 activity fee prior to their first MSHSAA sponsored event. The fee can be paid by check or online through www.myschoolbucks.com. Please make checks payable to Ladue Horton Watkins High School.
Participation slips will be available in the Activities Office beginning on February 24, 2020. A participation slip is generated when a student has the completed paperwork on file. ALL athletes MUST pick up a participation slip to give to their coach on their first day of practice. It is their “ticket” to get into practice. This shows the coach the student is eligible to practice.
PLEASE NOTE RECENT CHANGES MADE BY MSHSAA BELOW!
The Missouri State High School Athletic Association has changed the physical exam requirements for MSHSAA sponsored athletics. MSHSAA Bylaw 3.8.1 and 4.5.4 now allows a physical exam certified by a medical professional (MD/DO/ARNP/PA/Chiropractor) to be valid for a duration of two years (730 days) from date of issue (unless a physician specifically notes on the pre-participation exam that the physical is only valid for one year).
- Example: A physical that was received May 29, 2018 is now valid through May 28, 2020. A physical that was received on August 2, 2018 is now valid through August 1, 2020. Etc.
That being said, while the MSHSAA pre-participation physical exam form is now valid for a two year period from the date of the physical exam, all other pre-participation documents must still be completed/updated annually for every student athlete. Students will not be permitted to participate without these documents on file in the Activities Office.
