Select a Team


  • Physical Form
    All students must have a current physical examination completed for the school year 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 the Athletic Trainer or Athletic Director on the first day of try-outs.

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