Now is the Time to Check Your Sports Physicals!

If you have a middle or high school student who wants to participate in fall sports, now is the time to check on their sports physical! The sports physical must clear the student for participation in sports and be dated within three years, and remain current throughout their sport season. A printable copy of the sports physical form can be found here. To check on your student’s sports physical status, contact the Activities Office at 651-403-7206 or email dustin.boll@isd197.org. Please note: the activities office will have a modified schedule during July.  If you need a new sports physical, Twin Cities Orthopedics offers free high school sports physicals at 12 locations throughout July and August. Learn more here.

All Spring Athletics will begin practicing Monday, April 3, 2023 and will go through the week of May 15 - 19th.

A current Sports Physical (good for three years) must be on file at your respective school in order to register. Download the Sports Physical Exam Form here. Click here for the SmartSchool registration link.

When are practices?
Practices will be Monday through Friday right after school from 3:40 p.m. to 5:05 or 5:10 p.m.  We will not have practice or games on non-school days. Please check your email daily during your child's season for any schedule changes from the athletic director or coach, last minute changes may not be found on the website. On days of games/events, our teams will either be home or away. Scroll down for schedules.

Practice Sites and Activity Bus Information:
Please note that your student may participate in any activity regardless of their school. For instance, if a student attends Friendly Hills but wants to participate in a sport that practices at Heritage, they will simply take the activity/shuttle bus after school to Heritage for practice and vice versa. Practices will start right after school from 3:40 p.m. to 5:05 or 5:10 p.m. All students can either be picked up from the practice site, or they have an option for an activity bus that will bring them close to their home after practice.
