Dear Parent/Guardian,

Please see below information regarding the upcoming fall sports season at Holland Middle School. We hope to have your child participate on one of our teams!

In order a student to participate, the following requirements must be met prior to the first day of the season:

1. A current physical examination form must be on file in the athletic office. In order to be valid for the 2018-19 school year, the physical must have taken place on or after April 15, 2018. Physicals completed prior to this date cannot be accepted. The form must be signed by the parent/guardian and the student

2. Insurance fee of $30 per school year must be submitted to the athletic office. The fee can be waived by submitting a waiver form (available in the athletic office and online at www.hollanddutchsports.com) prior to the first day.
