Step #10 is the Athletic Participation Acknowledgement FormPlease make sure to choose a sport and that you are choosing the high school sports season (not middle school).

The fee must be paid when the athlete makes the team and prior to the day of the first competition.  Students will also be required to purchase an ASB card.
