Again, this year our kids will compete ‘as one’ (Northwest MS) in both 7th and 8th grade. Please refer to the information below about coaches, practice dates, and possible parent meetings. 

Sports Physicals:  

All participants must have documentation of having a sports physical completed and signed by a doctor BEFORE they can practice or play.  These must be on file in the Athletic Directors office at the High School.
