Athletic Information for Families and Students

Trailblazer athletics are well underway! We are proud of our cross country, football, and volleyball athletes and coaches as they show hard work in their practices and competitions, and we love seeing our students cheer on their classmates as fans! Below are a few reminders:


  • Starting September 22nd, we will begin with home completion admission fees. It is $3 for adult entry and $1 for student entry. Any student with an activity card will not pay admission. If a student from a different school would like to attend, they must be accompanied by an adult for the entire game/match/meet.
  • Students must sign up the week prior to the event in order to attend. This ensures we are properly staffed. Students have daily reminders during Daily Announcements of when and how to sign up.
  • If a student leaves an athletic event early, they must leave the school grounds. They will not be permitted to re-enter or ride the late bus.
  • If a student is asked to leave an athletic competition for misbehavior, they will not be permitted to attend another athletic event for the remainder of the season.
  • Students who are interested in participating in the next season (boys basketball and girls swimming) can sign up during Daily Announcements or on the website. Students must sign up and have sports physical, parent/student consent, concussion, and insurance forms completed and turned in to the back office, prior to the first day of practice.
