You will need to fill out the eligibility form online and electronically sign it (parent and athlete need to sign). You will then be asked to pay the $150 activity fee. If your family is on the reduced or free lunch plan, your fee is lower. The system should tell you how much you have to pay according to your lunch account.

Make you’re your son has a valid physical on file with the activities office or the system will not allow you to register.
Behavior – as an athlete for Middle School West, our athletes are ambassadors of our school. As an ambassador of our school, we expect our athletes’ behavior to be exceptional. We want our athletes to be positive role models for others to see and follow.
Important Policies to remember:
- Students need to be passing all of their classes to be on the football team. Mr. Antony will check to see if players are passing all of their classes at mid-tri.
- Students need to be in class five full periods of the day in order to practice or play in a game that night. Students with a doctor’s appointment may be excused from this requirement if they have documentation from the doctor referencing the appointment. Make sure to bring this note from the doctor to Mrs. Dodge, our attendance person.
- Your coaches will expect the players to be at practice every day. Practices are after school Monday through Thursday until 5:00. Missed practices may result in reduced playing time.
- We will bus you to all road games and back to West. You may ride home with your parents after road games rather than the bus if you wish. You need to have your parent sign out with your coach if you ride home with a parent. If you are planning to ride home with someone else’s parents, your parents need to notify Mr. Antony of this one day in advance.
Clothes: make sure to have warm clothes in your locker at all times. There will be some very cold days in the fall, dress smart.
