ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION

Students wishing to participate should plan to show up at the first practice.  There is no need to contact the school or coach to sign up.  All participants need a current physical and pre-participation paperwork filled out prior to the first practice.  All forms can be found on the Truman webpage under the Athletics tab.  Physicals are good for two years, so those who got a physical for the fall of 2021 do not need a new physical  but still need to have the preparticipation form filled out.  Please bring those forms to the first practice if they are not turned in at Registration or Back to School Night.  Students who do not have those forms turned in will not be allowed to participate in practice until they are turned in.  Students participating in athletics will also have a baseline impact test completed here at TMS during the first two weeks of practice.  There is no charge for this test, and it will take place during the school day.
