Managers: Any student who wants to be a manager must be approved by the coach and submit all parts of the VHSL physical form EXCEPT the doctor examination page.

Policy Meeting Requirement:

As Fall sports are gearing up to begin, our annual Athletic Policy requirement to participate is upon us.  Any rising 7th or 8th grader who intends to participate in at least one sport for the 2021-2022 athletic year must complete this VIRTUAL policy meeting just ONE TIME.  Student-Athletes will access Google Classroom through their 1770 accounts and use their current password for that account.  PARENTS ARE NOT ABLE TO DO THIS THROUGH THEIR PERSONAL EMAIL.  IT MUST BE COMPLETED THROUGH THE CHILD'S 1770 EMAIL.  

Fall sports: football, cheer, & volleyball will be beginning July 29th (football) and August 2nd (cheer & volleyball).  All athletes and parents will be required to complete the parent athlete policy meeting virtually this year. To access the video and pledge form please join the CAMS Athletic Policies Google Classroom with the code saikdyj; all lowercase.  Please access this through your child’s 1770 email address.  A parent and student athlete will need to complete the Edpuzzle Athletic Policies video assignment. After watching the video, parents and students will have access to the pledge form , via a link that will populate AFTER the video has ended, which will need to be submitted before participating in athletics.  If you are a FALL sport athlete, this must be completed before July 29 or August 2nd.  Please allow up to 24 hours for access to the Athletic Policy video assignment once you join the Google Classroom.
