Athletics Info / FAQ
A parent/guardian should register by clicking on this link:
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.
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 pm for most activities. The recommendation is that student/athletes need to complete their school day between 1st and 9th period.
- Drill and Cheer should avoid 1st period, as they practice in the AM. If you intend to participate in a season, please don’t enroll in a class during 1st (if Cheer/Drill), 10th, and 11th period for that semester.

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 9:45 to 2:15. 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, bus departs at 12:30; Coaches will release student/athletes at 12 Noon no matter what lunch they have.
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)
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.
