Students wishing to participate in fall sports at Northridge Middle School need to make sure that they meet all the requirements necessary to begin practice. A physical examination, code of conduct, insurance, sudden cardiac arrest, and concussion form must be on file in the Northridge office before anyone may participate in any practice. The physical must have taken place and be dated after April 1, 2018 to be valid. All the required forms are in one packet, which is available at the NMS office or online at www.mcsin-k12.org, by clicking on Schools, then Northridge Middle School, and then Athletics. Only the IHSAA physical form will be accepted. Physicals must be turned into the main office before the first day of practice. If we do not have a physical on file, athletes will only be able to watch. We strongly encourage you to turn in all paperwork during the following office hours:
|July 16 - July 19||8:00 am - 1:00 pm|
|July 23 - July 26||8:00 am - 11:00 am|
All student-athletes participating in a traveling sport must pay a $35 transportation fee per athletic season. Transportation fees should be given to coaches of the sport in season before the first contest (coaches will set the deadline for turning in the money). Do not send transportation money to the middle school office. A cap of $70 per student and $140 per family exists per school year per building. The accrual toward the cap total is for athletics only (does not include band, choir, or academic teams fees).
