Athletic Participation and Physical Forms
To participate in athletics at AHS there are two main requirements with TSSAA:
1) Each student/athlete must have an annual physical for the current school year.
It must be dated May 1 or later for the upcoming school year. Again, these must be done annually, and you must have one to tryout/participate. See the individual coach for copies, go to the TSSAA web site and look under forms, or see the link below.
2) Each student/athlete must pass 5 credit hours the previous school year.
If a student begins the year ineligible, they can regain eligibility at the end of the first semester if they pass five credit hours during that first semester.
AHS, and each individual coach, may have their own requirements in place for participation as well. These will be enforced accordingly.
Parents are encouraged to support their child and the athletic program, but they are also reminded to show the highest level of sportsmanship. Always display the best behavior possible, and always be a GOOD example to not only your child, but to the other young, impressionable eyes and ears that may be around you. Support the Team and the Program, not just the individual. Remember the parents job is to “parent”, and the coaches job is to “coach”. Be POSITIVE with your child!!!
