  1. Have a completed physical. This can be emailed to the office, dropped off in the office (office hours are 7:15 - 3:30 M-F), or brought on or before the first day of tryouts. No player will be allowed to try out without a completed KSHSAA physical packet on file.

  2. Heat illness and concussion training must be completed before practice begins (see below).

Heat Illness and Concussion Training

All athletes who wish to participate in fall sports must complete an online course on heat illness and concussions. The courses are available for free through the NFHS website (see below). Once complete, students should turn in their completion certificate to their coach on the first day of practice.

Navigate to: NFHS Learn

Student athletes should create an account for themselves to be used each year.

Search the courses for the following two courses:

  • Concussion for Students

  • Heat Illness Prevention

You must "purchase" these courses, but there is no cost. Once they have been "purchased," students can complete each course at their own pace. Print the certificate upon completion. If you are unable to print them, please send them via email to, and the certificates will be sent to the fall sports coaches.

8th Grade Head Coach: Jason Brown
