Reminders as the School Year Begins

As the fall season begins with practice, we would like to remind you of several items. Transfer students - always consider all transfer students ineligible until they have been cleared for transfer, code of conduct, and academic eligibility.  Your returning students – check their academic eligibility before competing and have your coaches meet with you again before the first contest to be sure an athlete did not join the team after the initial academic review.  Foreign Exchange students - Be sure to communicate with your guidance counselor and principal to see if you have any foreign exchange students who wish to participate in athletics. Collect Required Documentation Before Practice or Competition. Health and Safety – Have your coaches review the material on the WIAA Health Page.  Performance Enhancing Substances – PES is not limited to just steroids.
