Fall Sports Email sent 8/14/23

Hastings Middle School Parents,

Looking ahead to the fall for Middle School sports; please make sure you are planning ahead. Below are the things that you will need to know.


Fall Sport Registrations is OPEN. First day of practice for Football is Monday, August 28, 2023 for equipment handout. First day of practice for all other fall sports is Wednesday, September 6th. You must be registered to participate.

Once the online registration is complete the student will still need to be cleared by the Athletic Office. If a student is not cleared you will be notified as to what is needed in order to participate. An athlete will not be cleared to start if they have not turned in equipment from a previous sport or if they need to be medically cleared due to an injury or illness that occurred since their last physical.

An up to date physical is required to register for a fall sport. Physicals are good for 3 years. If you do not know if you have an up to date physical, it is in Infinite Campus. There is info in the registration tab on the website where to find it.

You must be completely registered and cleared before you will be allowed to practice.                            

More registration information can be found on the Middle School Athletics site.

If you have outstanding equipment to turn in; for example, basketball jersey, you will not be able to register for another sport until the equipment is turned in or the fine is paid. Multiple emails have been sent out to you and your student if they have missing equipment.

If you have any questions please email me, Katie McAlpin in Athletic Office at [email protected]   I currently do not have access to my phone as we are moving offices.
