Summer Sports Conditioning Information
As coaches finalize summer conditioning and training schedules, they will be posted on the Athletics website, under the Summer & Camps tab. Just posted: multiple sports schedules.
‘Ticket To Play’ for summer (and all) sports
The ‘Ticket to Play’ is our way to confirm that the student is an eligible athlete, with all paperwork, permissions and physical on file in the Athletic Office.
Every student-athlete needs to present a personal ‘Ticket To Play’ to the head coach of each sport they participate in BEFORE they can begin any team involvement- summer or seasonal conditioning, practice, etc. The ‘Ticket to Play’ and accompanying physicals and permissions are good for the entire 2018/19 school year.
Sports Nutrition Screening
Free sports Nutrition Screening is available for all 2018/2019 high school athletes through St. Vincent Sports Performance. Simply fill out the online form to get started.
