At MMU, we believe that participation in athletics is a privilege. We believe that studies come first and that the values and attitudes learned in athletics contribute to the complete education of the individual. Moral, emotional and social developments are particularly important contributions of athletics, and it is to these ends that athletics must direct a great part of their efforts. It is also recognized that the positive value of athletics is directly related to the quality of leadership. The personal example of everyone connected with our program will do much to assure its success.
The MMUHS Athletic Participation Form must be filled out and on file with the main office for EVERY sport season. When filling out the Athletic Participation form:
-> Section One must ALWAYS be filled out. It must be completed and signed by a parent/guardian.
-> Section Two gives the school and its athletic trainers permission for treatment and liability while your son/daughter is participating in a sport.
-> Section Three of the Athletic Participation Form states that you as the athlete and parent have read and agreed to the MMUHS Co-Curricular Guidelines & Procedures and Parent Concussion Information Brochure and Athlete Concussion Information Brochure and MMU Athletic Injury and Concussion Protocol.
Student Athletes will NOT be allowed to participate in practice or try-outs if they do not have a current physical on file. If you are in need of scheduling a physical quickly, please contact your primary care physician's office. If you need information on getting a walk-in physical, you can try Gillian Compo, the school nurse at 858-1769; however, Gillian does NOT actually do the physical. Physical paperwork can be found by simply asking your doctor's office.
If a Student Athlete participates in an MMUHS Sport where off-campus practice happens, parents must file this MMUHS Lack of School Transportation Form with the Student Athlete's coach.
If you have any other questions concerning the required forms needed before participating in the athletic program at MMUHS, please feel free to contact the Activities Director or Main Office.
