    What the athletes need to have turned in prior to coming to tryouts on August 12th:

    • Pre-registration packet: Print, fill out and return to the front office - You can pick up a packet at the school if you don’t have a printer.   Pre-Registration Packet                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
    • Physical Exam from a doctor- A sports physical and release from a physician is required to play any sport in the Thompson School District.  The release form must be signed by a physician and is part C of the pre-registration packet (the doctor's office has a generic form that is also acceptable)
