Student-athletes must meet high academic and attendance standards in order to participate in after-school sports. Our student-athletes focus on the things that make a difference in their education and their team membership.

Middle school athletics and activities

  • All students in middle school can participate in sports through the district’s no-cut policy.
  • Students may participate in one sport/activity per season.
  • Students cannot practice or participate in competitions until all required forms have been completed and submitted through FamilyID. Students also must have a valid physical to start practice. Families who do not have health insurance may wish to contact the Free Clinic of Southwest Washington. The Free Clinic of SW WA offers free sports physicals for families without insurance or if their insurance does not cover sports physicals. They are offered Monday, Wednesday and Fridays at 8:30am and Tuesday and Thursday at 5:30pm. The appointments are first come, first serve so it is recommended to arrive one hour early. Please have the History Form completed for the doctor and the blank physical form for the Dr to complete.
  • Parents should pick up their children from athletic events or arrange for rides. One-way busing will be used whenever possible.
  • VSAA students are eligible to participate in one Discovery sport per school year in addition to our Discovery Track and Field team. Registration is also through www.familyid.com and VSAA students are required to purchase a Discovery ASB Card in addition to paying the Sports fee.

Discovery Athletics and Activities Registration
When you register through FamilyID, the program keeps track of your information in your FamilyID profile. You enter your information only once for each family member. You may then access your profile to register for future sports and activities.
Please complete the registration in full. A partial registration will not be saved.
BEFORE YOU REGISTER:
  • PHYSICAL EXAMS*: A physical exam must be current within the past 24 months, signed by a physician, and uploaded into the registration system.
  • ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATION FORM*: If your student requires medication at school, or has a potentially life threatening condition, this form must be completed by a doctor and uploaded into the registration system.
*These forms are required for new online registrations only. If you have previously uploaded a physical in FamilyID that has not expired for your student, that information has been saved and is not required to be uploaded again.
INFORMATION NEEDED TO REGISTER:
It will be helpful to have the following information to allow accurate completion of your online registration:
  • Address and phone numbers for emergency contacts
  • Student’s primary doctor’s name and phone number (Please mark N/A if your student is seen at a clinic and does not have a Primary Doctor)
  • Student’s medical and dental insurance information and policy/group numbers*
*If you do not have medical and dental insurance you will need to purchase medical and/or dental through the student accident insurance plan at Myers-Stevens and Toohey
