WRSD Middle School Football Information:
All students enrolled in Grades 6-8 in a WRSD middle school are eligible to participate on the WRSD Middle School Football Team. Participants will need to have a signed permission slip and a copy of a current physical exam. Physicals are good for Thirteen months. For example, if the student's last physical was July 1, 2013, the physical would expire on August 1, 2014, thus the student would need an updated physical before beginning participation.
Middle School Athletic Permission slips are available on this website, under Athletics Information on the left hand side of this screen.

Important information regarding changes to middle school athletics - please read carefully!
The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association Board of Directors voted on Thursday, June 7, 2012 to adhere to the Department of Public Health's policy regarding the physical exam required for participation in athletics. In order to be in compliance with the state regulation, physical exams will be required every 13 months to the day of the exam. For example, if a student-athlete has a physical exam dated September 14, 2012, that exam will expire on October 14, 2013. Meaning as of October 15, 2013, the student-athlete will become ineligible to practice or compete until they present proof of a current physical to the school nurse, along with an updated green card, signed and returned to the head coach. Please note that this is a change from the previous requirements that enabled a student-athlete to remain eligible for the entire season as long as their physical was current on the first day of practice. Please make certain that your child has a current physical exam that will last the ENTIRE duration of the season, or schedule a doctor's appointment as soon as possible to have an updated physical exam.
There will be NO exceptions to this rule, nor will an extension be granted upon receiving a doctor's note.
