How to Participate
What do you need to be ready to compete in athletics at EMHS?
Complete the sports physical and waiver form. Forms are available at the EMHS office or can be downloaded and printed from the links below and are to be handed in to the Athletic Director or your coach before you can practice.
- Have a physical done by a doctor.
- Fill out and sign the physical/waiver form.
- Sign off on the substance abuse policy form and code of conduct.
- Complete the emergency contact form.
Be academically eligible! This means that you passed 3 classes (C or better) and had a GPA of 2.0 or higher last grading period. If you are a transfer student (not an incoming freshmen), please talk to the Athletic Director as soon as possible so that you can gain your eligibility through the NMAA. There may be a 90 – 180 school day waiting period for transfer students.
Be a current full time student at EMHS. This means being enrolled and passing 3 or more classes (being a teacher’s aide does not count as a class). Dual credit classes through CNM do count; please visit the Student Guidance Center for more information.
Pay the athletic fee. This fee needs to be paid before participation in the first game and can be submitted to the Front Office.
Read the EMHS athletics handbook and fill out the emergency contact sheet, code of conduct and substance abuse policy before the first game.
Show up to the mandatory pre-season meetings and practice with a smile on your face!
Starting in the 2017-2018 school year, all student-athletes are required to complete the NFHS (National Federation of High School Sports) Learn Concussion for Students Course before participating in a contest. Information for that course can be found at these links –
