If you have more than one child participating in athletics you must register each one separately. The Clarkston School District has instituted a pay-to-participate fee for athletics. The fee for the 2017-18 school year for athletes in 9th through 12th grades will be $325. The fee for the 2017-18 school year for 7th and 8th grade athletes will be $200. The student-athlete can hand the check in to the coach on the first day of tryouts/practice.
A STUDENT SHALL NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY PRACTICE SESSION OR CONTEST UNTIL THIS ONLINE REGISTRATION FORM HAS BEEN COMPLETED AND THE SPORTS PHYSICAL HAS BEEN HANDED IN TO THE COACH. If you participated in Sports Physical Day, you are still responsible for handing a copy of the physical in to the coach.
Due first day after team is chosen:$325 ($200 for 7th and 8th grade) yearly pay-to-participate fee – check or money order made payable to: Clarkston Schools. This should be handed in to the coach on the first day of practice.
I understand that the fee I am paying does not guarantee playing time or control over any conditions of the team, and is not refundable unless an injury takes place which disallows participation. A doctor’s authorization letter must be submitted with a request for refund. If the injury takes place after the midpoint of the scheduled season, no refund will be granted. I also understand that paying a fee does not alter Clarkston Board of Education Student Policies, Michigan High School Athletic Association regulations, the District Athletic Code, and individual team rules.
Be transported by bus to games, tournaments and competitions when possible. Leave from athletic contests with a parent, relative, or authorized adult.Accompany the team as a member on its out-of-town trips. This authorization is in effect for the entire school year.
I understand that the ability of coaches and other school officials to properly supervise students may be impaired when students are not under their direct control. I agree that coaches should not be held accountable when students who are authorized to use alternative means of transportation do so. I understand that coaches reserve their right to refuse requests by players to leave their teams if, in the coaches’ opinion, it serves the best interest of the individual or the program. I agree to release the Clarkston School District, its employees, and officers from all liability with reference to the above stated transportation.
This equipment represents a large expenditure of money by the Athletic Department and is to be returned to the coach upon completion of the sport season (within one week). If the equipment is LOST, STOLEN OR NOT RETURNED, the athlete will be held responsible for the replacement cost of the equipment.
