Hello Miller Families. We hope that this email finds you well and that your summer has been restful. We are quickly coming up on the start of the 2021-22 school year and athletic seasons. We would like to send out a couple of quick reminders.
We highly encourage you to schedule a physical and register your student before the beginning of the seasons. Please do not put this off until August. It puts a lot of pressure on our office staff and coaches to get players ready for competition, if they don't have all the paperwork taken care of, beforehand. We are also including links for registration/payment. If your student has had a physical for the Spring seasons, they are good for 365 days from their most recent physical. You may need to get another physical before the track season. You may have to ask your medical provider for a digital/scanned copy of the physical.
Also, because middle school athletic seasons are short, please consider scheduling any vacations or trips before the season starts. Although we are not officially sanctioned as a CHSAA activity, we try to abide by CHSAA guidelines. Because of that, CHSAA requires players to have at least 9 practices before the 1st fall competition (5 practices for all other sports seasons). This is to ensure that players are in playing shape after summer vacation. If this is unavoidable, please contact the head coach.
Finally, we are expecting the 2021-22 athletic seasons to be as "normal" as possible. That being said, we have not received any communication from CHSAA about any type of COVID restrictions/variances for specific sports. If something comes up, we will notify families immediately. We realize that the majority of us are exhausted with COVID Protocols, but please be flexible and patient with this process and with any type of safety measures that we may need to implement.
