PHS announces fall sports practice dates

Posted July 31, 2017

Plymouth High School fall sports seasons are just around the corner, with some teams beginning to practice this week.

Any athlete planning on going out for a fall sport at PHS needs the following items:

  • A completed physical card or alternate card. (Athletes need a physical every two years.)
  • A signed athletic code form (parent and athlete signatures required).
  • A signed WIAA High School Eligibility Information Bulletin (parent and athlete signatures required).
  • A signed concussion information form (parent and athlete signatures required).

Forms are available on the PHS Athletics page and in the high school office during normal office hours, from 7 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. weekdays. Completed forms should be turned into the high school office, which then can issue a blue permit-to-practice card. Athletes will not be allowed to practice until a blue card is turned in to the head coach.

The athletic code meeting for new PHS athletes going out for any sport during the 2015-16 school year will follow Freshman Orientation on Wednesday, Aug. 23, beginning around 8 p.m. in the PHS Auditorium. Freshmen, first-time athletes and their parents are required to attend.
