Physicals

All students must have a current physical examination completed for the school year 2018-2019 before they will be allowed to try-out for a sports team. The completed physical form should be on file with the school nurse prior to the first day of try-outs, or your son may turn in the completed form to Mr. Jon Glover, Athletic Trainer, Ms. Michele Connor, Asst. Athletic Director or Mr. Kraig Loovis, Athletic Director on the first day of try-outs. Forms can be found on the website under athletic/forms.

If your insurance only allows a physical every 2 years, or if you are not due for a new physical prior to the start of the 2018/2019 school year we do accept Patient First or Minute Clinic physicals. This will cover the requirements for participation in athletics at the Mount.

These meetings are mandatory for all students and a parent who have made a fall sports team, or who are still in the process of trying out for a fall sports team. Attendance will be taken at the meeting. Anyone who cannot attend this meeting must notify Mr. Loovis prior to the meeting. Mr. Loovis can be reached by e-mail kloovis@admin.msjnet.edu
