Getting Started

2017 Fall Sports Information Central

1. PRINT THE PHYSICAL PACKET AND STUDENT/PARENT ACTIVITY HANDBOOK by clicking here or pick one up from the Athletic Office.

- REMINDER: All physicals must be filled out on our forms.  This is mandated by the MSHSAA.



If a student intends to play sports for the Washington Blue Jays, he/she must have a valid physical packet on file in the Activities Office prior to participation.  

- REMINDER: Don't forget to bring your physical packet with you to the doctor so he/she can fill out our forms.



After your physical has been completed, make sure the rest of the packet is filled out.  This includes:

• Student Signature

• Parent/Guardian Signatures

• Reading the Concussion Information

• In Case of an Emergency Information


4. TURN IN THE PHYSICAL PACKET AND HANDBOOK COMMITMENT FORM to the Athletic Office by the first day of team practice.



Once an athlete has a physical packet on file in the Athletic Office, he/she is issued a practice card.  The athlete will then give this card to his/her coach in order to participate in practice/tryouts.  Without this card, an athlete will not be able to participate.  


Need help?  Call the Activities Office at (636) 231-2180.
