To participate in sports you must have: 1) current physical on file (dated after April 15, 2017), 2) permission form on file, 3) be passing at least 3 classes and 4) paid participation fee. Try-outs for sports are announced during student announcements and on the Berkshire website. Athletes will receive a green verification form to give to the coach after all 3 items have been turned in. You will not be allowed to tryout without the green verification form in hand. Students must be in school a minimum of three periods to participate in an athletic contest or practice that afternoon or evening. Check the athletic portion of Berkshire’s website for all necessary forms. For your convenience you may pay all fees on line using the Pay Schools Link on Birmingham Public Schools main page. All outstanding fines must be paid before students can participate in athletics.
