Athletics at Eckstein Middle School

All students interested in any of our spring sports are required to have completed paperwork (including a completed physical signed by your doctor) turned into the school in order to be cleared to turn out.  Physicals are only good for two years from the date of the exam. Students with expired physicals will not be allowed to turn out for a sport until they submit an updated physical.

SPS Athletic Forms

Here are some required forms that need to be submitted in order to be cleared to turn out for any Eckstein sports this year.

Find all the Middle School Athletic forms on the SPS Website

Note the two additional COVID forms required for students to participate!

Once complete, you can email a scan/photo of them to Mary Williams at or drop off the hard copies into the front office of Eckstein when the building re-opens.

Athletic COVID Information

Important COVID Guidelines (Please Read)

  • All players must complete three required COVID forms in the Athletic Packet.
  • All athletes and coaches are required to wear face masks when arriving at all practices and games. Face masks may be removed when players are actively engaged in athletic activity, but must be worn at all other times (on the sideline, while waiting in a cue, etc.).
  • All athletic equipment will be cleaned and disinfected before each practice and game.
  • Athletes need to bring their own water bottles (no sharing!) and practice social distancing. If practice jerseys are used, they may not be shared.
  • Students cannot go back into the school building after exiting for practices. Coaches will have an area for players to keep their personal items stored during practice. The porta potty located outside the portable classrooms is to be used for restroom breaks. Hand sanitizer will be available at every practice and in the porta potty.
  • We are excited to resume our athletic program safely!
