Reminder: Now is the time to make an appointment for a doctor’s physical examination. The physical is good for one calendar year from the date it is completed. By getting it over the summer, you are set for the entire school year. You must also complete the participation form on the first day of practice.

Academic Eligibility:
Fall eligibility is determined by your 2nd semester Final Grades. ALL grades must be above 65 (passing). Grades will be checked at the warning period and conclusion of each quarter.
 
Middle School RED Team vs BLUE Team Selection: We have gone away from 7th and 8th grade teams as we simply don’t have the numbers to field teams based on grade anymore. Deciding whether to tryout for the RED or BLUE team is a family decision, one which should be in the best interest of your student athlete. The RED team plays a VERY tough schedule playing the top schools in the area, while preparing for next level athletics at the high school. The BLUE team plays smaller schools or “B” teams and focuses on fundamentals. Novice players will be more successful on the BLUE team, experienced players will be more successful on the RED team. If a student athlete is cut from the RED team they will be allowed to tryout for the BLUE team. 
All participants are required to turn in a completed MAU Physical/Participation form at the first meeting, or first day of tryouts before they can begin practice. This form can be picked up at the Main Office of the middle school or high school, or can be downloaded by clicking HERE for the participation form and HERE for the physical form. You can fax forms to 442-1289. Please email ashley.hoyt@svsu.org with any questions about these forms.
