MANY TRADITIONS, ONE SCHOOL
2017-2018 ATHLETIC REGISTRATION GUIDELINES
To be eligible to participate in athletics at Central High School, the following items must be delivered to the Central Athletic Office the Friday before the first scheduled day of practice.
_____ 1. A completed & signed 2017-18 M.S.H.S.L. Eligibility Statement/Health Questionnaire- effective for one calendar school year
_____ 2. An up-to-date SPORTS physical exam - eligible for three years, unless stated otherwise by a Physician
_____ 3. Participation fee - required fees vary by sport, please see a specific sport's homepage for details. Checks payable to "Central High School"
To ensure the athletic department receives all necessary materials prior to the start of the season, do not mail fee or forms to Central High School. All registration items must be hand delivered to the Athletic Office (room 1116) for verification the Friday before the first scheduled day of practice. Failure to turn in necessary materials on time will result in an ineligibility to physically particpate. Athletes cannot participate until they have been deemed eligible by the athletic department. No participation fee refund will be given after the second official week of practice. A refund request must commence by the athlete or parent/guardian within the first two weeks of practice. Registration for all athletics ends on the fourth Friday from the start of a specific season (some exceptions may apply to this rule). Additional athletic registration resources are available on the Athletics Homepage under "Athletic Forms" in the right hand column.
The Minnesota State High School League Eligibility form is to be filled out ONE time each school year for each student.
An up-to-date Sports Qualifying Physical Exam Form is required to play sports. The sports physical is generally good for three years. Please turn in your sports physical to the Athletic Office.
