Each year, athletes in our district are required to submit proof of a physical signed by a physician in order to partcipate in sports. Physicals are required every 2 years and in non-physical years, an alternate year card must be signed by a parent. After athletes complete the physical and appropriate paperwork is completed, including physician signature, date of physical and birthdate of athlete, the paperwork (or alternate year card) must be turned in to the Athletic Director at the middle schools or the Athletic Trainer at BMHS BEFORE students will be allowed to participate in a sport.
This summer, there will be an Athletic Physical Clinic offered at BMHS in Barkin Arena on the following dates: Tuesday, June 15, 2010 and Tuesday, August 3, 2010 from 1:00 - 5:00 on both dates. The cost will be $25.00 per athlete payable at the appointment. To schedule an appointment or if you have any questions, please call Sam at 361-4533. Walk-ins are only available on a first-come-first-served basis and only if a time slot is open. This is open for any student who is entering 7th, 8th or 9th grade in the fall.
