Next Fall, as a 7th grader, your child will have the opportunity to try out for interscholastic sports at Wappingers Junior High if they are interested.  Interscholastic sports are school sponsored team sports that compete against teams from other schools in the area. (Not to be confused with intramurals).

    In order to try out, there is a process that needs to be completed.
    • You must complete and sign a "Health History" form and an "Interscholastic Athletic Consent" form. 
         -These forms are currently available in the Myers Health Office and online to print out. 
         - Only 1 "Health History" needs to be completed per year (per physical).
         - One "Interscholastic Athletic Consent" form needs to be completed for each sport, each season.
    • These forms should be completed and submitted to the Myers Health Office as soon as possible.

    Your child will need a physical examination. The physical can be completed by any of the following three methods:

    1. This can be done in the Myers Health Office by the District physician during the Spring.  It would be done during school hours and there is no charge.  There is no blood work or other lab work associated with an in school physical and the children are fully clothed during this exam.  You may be present with your child for this exam upon request. 
    2.  The physical may be completed at a Healthquest office:
         Wappingers - 1530 Rt. 9 Phone (845) 297-2511  OR   LaGrangeville - 110 Rt. 55 Phone (845) 485-4455
    3.  You may choose to have your child's sports physical completed by your private physician.  If you choose to have the physical completed by your own doctor, it must be completed on the WCSD Physical Examination form (below).  Once, completed, it must be submitted to the school Health Office for review by the District physician for determination of eligibility to participate in the specific sport.
     An athletic physical is valid for 12 months. 
    If your child's sports physical is completed more than 30 days before the beginning of the sports, you will need to complete and sign the "Interval Health History- 30 day card" within 30 days prior to the beginning of that sports season.  These forms are available from the junior high Health Office or the individual coach.
