Hornets News · Fall Sports Registration


Before the first practice, make sure you have filled out the sports registration form: Sports Registration



If your child had a valid sports physical on file with the Athletic Department for the 2019-2020 school year (must have been completed April 15th of 2019 or later), then just complete the MHSAA Health Questionnaire in the link below.  Complete this form rather than obtaining a new physical this summer.

This form can be turned in one of three ways:

  1. Turn into their coach prior to first day of practice
  2. Turn into the Athletic Office at the High School prior to first day of practice
  3. Complete and email to Mrs. Alexis at Alexisp@salineschools.org

Again, the completion of this form takes the place of obtaining a new physical as long as you had a valid physical last year.

The MHSAA Health Questionnaire can be found here: MHSAA Health Questionnaire 

If your child does not have a valid physical on file, then they must obtain a physical from a physician.  The completed physicals can be turned in 1 of the 3 ways listed above.  You can find a copy of the physical form here: Physical Form
