Parents,


The the start of the above fall sports is just around the corner, and I just wanted to get some information out to you.

  • First all athletes need to have a signed parent consent form and a current physical.  All 9th and 7th graders will need a physical that is dated May 2017 or later.  Most 8th graders have a current physical from their 7th grade year.  If we don’t have one on file, they will need to get a new physical. These forms need to be on file with the school before the athlete can practice.  These forms are online on the Boise School District’s website.  They can be turned in at registration.

  • Detailed Practice schedules will be available at registration or within the first week of practice. Please see me at registration if you have questions.  I should have handouts for all the Fall Sports

  • We will be putting together Hornet Wear online team pages for each sport through Eastbay Team Sales.  This information will be available at registration.
