In order to participate in athletics, the UIL requires that all student-athletes have a current physical and several signed acknowledgements. A physical is good for 2 years but the UIL forms MUST BE COMPLETED EVERY YEAR. These forms include: Medical History, Emergency Contact, Cardiac Arrest Awareness, Concussion Acknowledgement, Rules Acknowledgement, and Steroid Use. If you have not completed your physical and all required UIL forms, you must do so and turn them in at the athletic office before you can begin practice.

DragonFly MAX is an online health records program we use and all forms can be found here. See below for directions on how to register and complete the forms online. If you have any trouble with this process, please contact the athletic office. We need all forms submitted online or the hard copies turned in before athletes will be allowed to participate in interscholastic competitions.

During football season, we will adhere to a routine where practice begins at 6:45 am every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. On Thursday will have a 7:15 am start time.  Since we play on Thursdays, each Friday we will have a 7:30 am start time. Doors will be open 30 minutes before practice. Junior High football players will not have after school practice. Even though it is early, it is imperative that you eat breakfast. This is the most important meal of the day. A light breakfast such as oatmeal, fruit, or a granola bar goes a long way towards fueling your body for practice. We will eat breakfast at the Upper Junior High after practice.

If you have inhalers, epipens, diabetic supplies, etc. for medical conditions, you will need to bring extras to leave with the Athletic Staff. Also, you will need to provide your own football shoes. Football shoes need to be black, white, purple, grey, or any combination of these. We do have several used pairs that athletes may borrow.
