Did you know?
August 1 is the start of what’s known as a “dead period” for high school coaches and athletes, meaning that weight room hours, open gyms, workouts, etc. go on hiatus until the first practice or tryout for fall sports. This is mandated by the IHSAA, and I like to call it the “calm before the storm”! It’s also a great time to make sure all required paperwork is in order. Your signed eligibility form is your ticket to try out, and you must show it to your coach on the first day of practice or tryouts before you will be allowed to participate until you get it completed and signed. If the office hours don’t work for you to come in, you can email your completed form to email@example.com, and your signed form will be returned to you via email within 24 hours.
