2017 Fall Sports Information

The following information will help parents and incoming 10th, 11th, and 12th graders as you prepare for the fall sports season:

The fall sports season begins on August 9th.
All 10th, 11th, and 12th graders planning on trying out for a Fall Sport must have a 2.0 GPA with no more than one failing grade for the marking period.

All 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders will need the following:

  • Athletic Participation form.
  • Copy of Birth Certificate. One time item. If the student has played a sport before, this is already on file.
  • Proof of residency. This may be a BGE bill, phone bill, etc.
  • Sudden Cardiac Arrest form.
  • Concussion Information Sheet
  • Concussion Release Form (if tested)

You can download all forms on the RHHS website: www.rhhs.hcpss.org

All student athletes must be insured.
All students must have concussion testing prior to the first practice, except for Golf and Cross Country. Concussion testing is good for 2 years.

All outstanding student obligations must be rectified prior to August 9th tryouts for all perspective student-athletes.
