REGISTER ATHLETES

It will be helpful to have the following information handy to allow for accurate completion of your online registration. (Example: Doctor information, Health Insurance Information, Emergency contact numbers)
 

A parent/guardian should register by clicking on this link:

https://www.familyid.com/moses-lake-school-district

All paperwork other than the student Physical exam is included in Family ID.

PHYSICAL EXAMS: A physical exam must be current within the past 13 months and signed by the physician. If the student’s physical expires during the season, they will not be able to play until a new physical exam is received.

GAME SCHEDULES

All official game schedules are posted on https://www.big9athletics.org electronically to all that subscribe (which is free). Click on the orange SUBSCRIBE button on the site. Please be aware that schedules do change frequently for various reasons, and only subscribers are guaranteed notification of the change. Also be aware, there are only 3 seasons for high school sports, and each season does practice/play when school is not in session, for example, fall sports start before school does, winter sports go over Thanksgiving and Winter break and Spring sports go over Spring break.

 

ATHLETE ELIGIBILITY

To be an eligible student/athlete, a student must be a full-time student, meaning they are enrolled and actively going to 7 classes (credits) if Freshman thru Junior and maintain at least a 2.0 GPA*; (If a Senior 6 classes (credits) and on track to graduate). Please see the Athletic Department if not on-campus full-time; whether it’s for Running Start, CB Tech, Digital online or Alternative Education options for a WIAA Contract to make sure you are a full-time student.

*Some coaches may have additional team requirements.

ANY CHANGE to the student/athlete schedule must be cleared through the athletic department to maintain eligibility.


We are required by WIAA to check student/athlete scholarship in two ways:

  • Student/athletes must pass the minimum number of classes the previous semester of competing or have an ineligibility suspension period.

  • Pass the minimum number of classes and maintain their GPA on our periodic check (every 4 1⁄2 weeks) during the season. This is a weekly suspension of games until they raise their scholarship.

REGISTERING FOR SCHOOL-WHAT TRACK?

  • Due to limitations of daylight or facility use; practices start near 3:30 for most activities.  MLHS will only have two tracks with both finishing by 3:10.
  • Drill and Cheer should avoid 1st period as they practice in the AM.

ATTENDANCE AT SCHOOL

Student/Athletes need to be at school to practice or play. No unexcused absences are permissible. Excused absences greater than 1⁄2 a day must be pre-approved through the Athletic Department. Coaches/Advisors will excuse team related absences from school as a School Activity. Knowing that our athletes need to eat on game days, the following protocol will be used when buses depart during the lunch hours: Kids could have lunch anywhere from 10:40 to 1:20. If a team departure is at 12:50 PM or earlier, Coaches will give the teams 30 minutes to get their gear and grab lunch. For example, the bus departs at 12:30; Coaches will release student/athletes at 12 Noon no matter what lunch they have.

ASB FEES

Your athlete must pay their ASB fee in order to participate in a sport. Free & Reduced lunch qualifies for a reduced ASB fee, but it is not waived. ($50/$35)

ACTIVITY CODE

The Athletic/Activity Code is in effect from the first allowable WIAA fall turnout date through the Spring State Tournament or end of the year awards banquet, whichever is later and includes enforcement during school-sponsored summer camps.

ATHLETE INJURIES

Should an athlete require medical treatment/evaluation for an injury, the athlete will need a note from the doctor clearing them to return to play. Each athlete will be baseline tested with the ImPACT Concussion program. Should an athlete be suspected to have received a concussion, a Certified Athletic Trainer will evaluate them before they are allowed to return to participation. Return to play protocol may involve a progressive approach depending on the severity of the injury and will be monitored by our ATC’s.
