Athletics at Eckstein Middle School

Athletic Registration

Participation in athletics in Seattle Public Schools requires updated forms and registration each academic year and students must have a signed physician’s physical every twenty-four months (two calendar years) on file with the school’s Athletic Coordinator. Forms can be printed by clicking the link below and hard copies of the forms are available in Eckstein’s main office.

Students will not be cleared to participate in any tryouts, practices, or competitions until all forms have been completed and approved by the Athletic Coordinator.

The entire packet must be completed each year. ONLY the Physical carries over to the next school year (unless expired).

  1. Athletic Registration
  2. Athletic Physical Form
    • This form MUST be completed by a doctor and will require a physical exam. The document expires two years from the date of the exam. Students with expired physicals will not be allowed to try out for a sport.
  3. Sport Specific Guardian Release & Warning Forms:
    • Basketball
    • Soccer
    • Track & Field
    • Ultimate Frisbee
    • Volleyball

Which Forms Should I Submit?

Complete all parts of all forms before turning the completed packet into the main office. The packet must include clearance by a doctor on the Physical Form.

Double check that your physical is still up to date (exam date must be within the last two calendar years). Complete all parts of all forms except physical and please write “physical on file” across the page.

Complete all parts of all forms before turning the completed packet into the main office. The packet must include clearance by a doctor on the Physical Form.

As long as there are current athletic forms on file at Eckstein already (including a physical completed within the last two years), then you only need to complete the additional Sport Specific Guardian Release & Warning Form (Basketball, Soccer, Track & Field, Ultimate Frisbee, Volleyball)

Weekly Grade Reports

Eckstein has decided to not require that grade check reports be turned in, though some coaches may still require it for specific teams. Administration will perform the grade checks via internal reports instead of requiring this step to take place.

Students are expected to maintain a 2.0 GPA with no more than 1 failing grade in order to be eligible to play in the game each week.

Please email the Athletic Coordinator for more information at tmmorgan@seattleschools.org
