Physical forms: All athletes must have a physical to participate in sports at FMMS. Physical forms can be printed under the forms tab on website. The physical is good for one calendar year. Athletes who receive a physical between now and the beginning of the school year will be able to participate in all sports for the 2016 – 2017 school year. Physical forms need to be completely filled out including doctor’s signature, insurance information, and parent consent. If the FM Schools Physical form is not filled out completely, the student athlete will not be allowed to practice until the form is completely filled out. If students do not have insurance, insurance can be purchased through the school at a very reasonable rate. Please contact the FMMS office for insurance information.
Eligibility: FMMS primary purpose is to educate the student, with sports being secondary to academics. This is why we have an eligibility rule. Athletes will not be able to participate after the 1st two contests if they have an “F” in more than one class. This is updated at the beginning of each week. Academics come before athletics.
Attendance: It is very important that students attend every practice. If a student misses practice, they will not learn the skills taught that day. If they miss the practice before game day, they will not be able to play the next day. FMMS athletics expects all athletes to attend practice daily.
