All students in grades 7-12 planning to compete in a fall sport during the 2021-2022 sport seasons will need to submit forms electronically*.   We do not hand out paper athletic packets. A district email was sent out to parents on July 6, 2021.  Please follow the link inside the email to create a new returning student registration.  This will create a log-in for our new online forms system.  
*All online forms must be completed in their entirety and a current physical must be on file in the athletic office prior to the first official practice/tryout for a student athlete to participate. Physical forms may be picked up in the athletic office, printed from the OHSAA Physical Form link on the left side of this webpage, or printed from this link

OHSAA Update 4/9/21

Ohio Health Director’s Order Consolidated
As many of you are aware, Governor DeWine on Monday (April 5) announced that the Ohio Department of Health has issued a simplified Health Director’s Order that streamlines previous orders into a single order which underscores the most important tenants of infection prevention. While some elements have changed, the new order focuses on the same defense measures against COVID-19 that have been previously required, such as wearing a mask, social distancing, limiting large gatherings, guidelines when outside and practicing good hand hygiene. Here are some highlights:
•  There no longer is a spectator capacity limit for outdoor venues.
•  Spectators are permitted to sit in pods of 10 (rather than six), and they do not have to be from the same household. However,
    that pod must still maintain six-feet social distancing from other pods or individuals. All other individuals must continue to
    maintain six-feet social distancing.
•  Those not in the contest can be in a pod of 10 so long as that pod maintains six-feet social distancing from other pods or
    individuals. Conferences/leagues or schools may want to consider continuing policies that maintain six-feet social distancing
    for everyone not in the contest to help slow the contracting and/or spreading of COVID-19.
•  All spectators and those not in the contest, including coaches, must continue to wear facial coverings unless six-foot social
    distancing can be maintained (or if one of the exceptions for not wearing a facial covering is met).
•  The local health department has the authority to enact policies that are more stringent than the Health Director’s Order.
“As before, the key for our school administrators, coaches, participants and spectators is to use common sense when conducting or attending our spring sports contests or events in order to slow the contracting and/or spreading of COVID-19,” said OHSAA Executive Director Doug Ute. “We want our students to continue to be able to participate, especially those in spring sports who were unable to conduct their seasons a year ago. With some areas seeing an increase in the virus among teenagers, with the majority in that population not having been vaccinated, now is not the time to relax and let our guards down.”
The bullet points above and revised Ohio Health Director’s Order take precedence over any other ODH- or OHSAA-issued documents. Here is a link to the revised Order:





OHSAA Inclement Weather Policy Changes

The OHSAA’s inclement weather policy has a change this year, which states: “At night under certain atmospheric conditions, lightning flashes may be seen from distant storms. In these cases, it may be safe to continue an event if no thunder can be heard and the flashes are low on the horizon.” Otherwise, if thunder is heard or lightning is seen, outdoor activities shall be suspended for 30 minutes and all personnel, athletes and spectators shall evacuate to available safe structures or shelters. The full policy is posted at: Read More...
