• Lacrosse 2018
      OpeningMeeting
All students must have a valid physical on file, BEFORE they try out. If your son has a physical completed during the school year, please send in an updated copy. Physicals are valid for 13 months. Your doctor may have a form that they use, which is acceptable. A copy of the state physical form can be found here. There is no need to send in a duplicate of an up-to-date physical that is already on file.

All candidates must fill out the pre-participation concussion form and must take the MIAA required concussion course before they can try out.  Bring confirmation that both you and your parent have successfully completed the course to the try-out meeting or they may be mailed to Mr. Patrick White, Athletic Director.
