All student athletes must have a current OHSAA Sport Physical before the start of an athletic season. The preparticipation physical form, athletic code of conduct contract and eligibility checklist, and athletic medical waiver/authorization form are required documents which must be filled out and returned to the middle school coaches. The OHSAA Sport Physical form is due the first day of mandatory practices along with the yellow medical waiver form, your athlete will not be able to practice without these forms. The remaining forms are due along with your child's participation fee of $150 for the 2014-2015 school year no later than the team sports picture day scheduled for the season in which your child will participate. The physical form is valid for one calendar year and will be kept on file. The code of conduct and eligibility checklist and medical waiver need to be completed each athletic season to ensure CMS has the most current and accurate information to ensure your child's safety. The student and parent athletic handbook is a complete listing of all information that you and your child need. Please take the time to read this document carefully. All forms and fees must be turned in directly to your coach.
