Middle School Winter Sports Announcements
The winter is quickly approaching and our athletic teams are getting geared up for the start of another sports season. Available sports are boys’ basketball, girls’ basketball and cheerleading/dance. All student-athletes need to meet the following requirements in order to participate:
• Registration in Family ID (found on the TGS website under Athletics) for the appropriate winter sport, Middle School Boys Basketball, Middle School Girls Basketball, or Middle School Cheerleading/Dance. STUDENT-ATHLETES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE WITHOUT REGISTERING IN FAMILY ID.
• An up-to-date Physical Exam Form (blue form). If a student-athlete has not had a physical in the last 13 months, they will be allowed to watch but not participate until a current physical is on file. Student-athletes needing physicals should see their own doctor. Blue forms can be found in the main office, the nurses’ office or in the athletics office here at Gilbert. Again, STUDENT-ATHLETES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE WITHOUT A CURRENT PHYSICAL and APPROVAL FROM THE SCHOOL NURSE.
