Prior to participation, students must have:
1) ATHLETIC PASSPORT. The Athletic Passport is a form that students complete to update the Activities Office on their current biographical information. It also includes sport participation, Code of Conduct, Informed Consent COVID document and emergency information. One may be completed in the summer for the entire year or prior to each sport.
ATHLETIC PHYSICAL. State Law requires that participants in Athletic Competition have a current physical. Athletic Physicals are maintained in a computer database at the Activities Office along with a hard copy of the form. Physicals are valid for thirteen (13) months from the date of exam.
2) CONCUSSION IN HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS. Each school year, every student (grades 7-12) and their parent/guardian must receive and sign a concussion and brain injury information sheet provided by the Iowa High School Athletic Association, and Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union before the student is able to participate in interscholastic sports, cheerleading, and dance in any way (practice or competition). This information sheet is titled, “Heads Up: Concussion in High School Sports.” This form may be downloaded at
