News for Athletes! News for Athletes!

With spring tryouts and training upon us, many students have visited the local clinic or doctor for the important physical evaluation that is required to participate in sports.

Even if you just recently got an updated physical, ALL ATHLETES should plan to attend FREE PHYSICAL NIGHT on May 21st at Walker High School to get your physical form expiration dates in line with experienced athletes. 

We understand that this may mean you just got a physical for your tryouts and we are asking you to do this again within a couple of months, but by attending Free Physical Night at the Walker, you will be 'in line' with the experienced athletes and will not need another yearly physical until next May.

So remember, ALL ATHLETES should attend Free Physical Night on May 21st to ensure you will have an updated physical form on file for the entire 2013-2014 school year and you will not have to 'sit out' when your current physical expires.

If you have questions, see Renee Miller in the school office.  She will have the forms needed for Free Physical Night and can offer further explanation if needed.
