As a reminder, a medical form for athletic clearance must be submitted prior to participating. Due to the unusual circumstance of this school year, the MHSAA has changed the requirements of this pre-participation physical. You may be able to use last year's physical by submitting the MHSAA Sports Health Questionnaire. Contact your Athletic Director for more information.
