G-CHS Sports Start Dates 2017-2018

The following dates are the first official dates of practices for all of our sports at GCHS.

All potential Incoming 6 – 12th grade athletes must have all required athletic paperwork on file in their respective Athletic Offices prior to conditioning/tryouts of their 1st sport.  Please go to the High School Athletic webpage.  Click on Athletics, then Cougar HQ, then Athletic Paperwork, to download the 4-page IHSAA Pre-Participation Exam to take to your doctor.  Please put your student’s full legal name, the 2017-2018 grade level, and completely fill out pages 1 & 4. Once the doctor fills out page 2, turn it into the appropriate athletic office.  To complete your student’s on-line forms, click on the RankOne link found under Cougar HQ on the Athletic webpage.  Then, using your student’s PowerSchool ID number, select Athlete and complete the rest of your student’s required paperwork.  Once you have completed all steps in this paragraph, your student may condition/tryout for a sport.

*GCHS also offers opportunities in Student Athletic Training.  You may contact Athletic Trainer Diana Taylor at 462-9195, ext. 5 for more information.*

Fees will be due as soon as your athlete is on the roster of the sport(s) they will be playing.  Fees will be considered past due and non-participation will take place on the day of the 1st competition against another school, i.e. scrimmage or game.
