7th graders/Transfer Students: All incoming 7th graders as well as transfers into our district must have a physical in order to participate in athletics. If your son has not yet been given a physical this year and is in one of these groups, he must get one before the start of the school year or before two-a-days begin if he is a high school football player. Physical paperwork is available in the coach’s office or online at the following address: https://www.uiltexas.org/files/athletics/forms/PrePhysForm15.pdf
Parents: Sportsyou will be the primary method used by coaches to communicate with parents and players. Make sure you are signed up. Up to date information concerning our athletic program can be accessed by downloading the Sportsyou app and joining “VHS Athletics Parents”. Use code DZT66DMT to get started.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Athletic Director Kevin Sherrill on his office phone, (940) 553-3377 ext: 3127, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
