Team Sports at Meany
Meany students can participate in a variety of athletics in the fall, winter, and spring. Teams are formed for Soccer, Basketball, Track, Volleyball, and Ultimate Frisbee . The start of sign-ups will be announced in the daily announcements and posters will be posted around school. Nearly every sport has a varsity and junior varsity team depending on number of participants. Athletic participation teaches teamwork, goal setting, discipline, sportsmanship, leadership, and other valuable life skills. Studies show that students participating in athletics have higher GPAs, better attendance, fewer disciplinary problems, higher graduation rates, and better success in college than non-participants.
IMPORTANT: To be eligible to play on any of the teams, students must have an Athletic Registration Form and a Physical Form signed by a doctor on file at Meany before tryouts. You will also need to read and sign the Concussion and Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Form . Completed forms should be turned in to the main office. Physical forms are valid for 24 months. Students can check in the main office to see if they already have a current physical form on file. During their season, students must maintain a 2.0 grade point average and meet District citizenship standards each week in order to participate in that week’s sports event.
NOTE: Students may get their sports physical done at the Meany Health Center.
