Student athletes, it is never too early to get your physical, eligibility form and health/injury form turned in to the activities office if you are planning on participating in a winter sport (basketball, bowling, wrestling or boys swimming). All necessary forms are right outside the activities office or can be downloaded from the Valley website. Fall sport athletes can wait until their season is over before coming to the athletic office and switching paperwork.
Reminder: Your name will not be put on the roster until all paperwork is in!! Go to Infinite Campus and check your schedule. If the winter sport that you want to participate in is not on your schedule, you are not on the roster and you will not be able to practice. If you have questions, stop by the athletic office soon!!
