Athletics at Eckstein Middle School

Eckstein Athletics

Eckstein Middle school is transitioning to FinalForms, an online system, that boosts compliance and safety. FinalForms allows you to complete and sign forms from your computer, table, or mobile device.

FinalForms saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year, meaning you will never need to enter the same information twice! FinalForms also pre-populates information wherever possible, for each of your students, saving parents/guardians time if you have multiple children. It also saves us just under 10,000 sheets of paper as each packet is over 15 pages long and we have over 600 student athletes.

You may log in any time to update information including emergency medical contacts and information. You will be required to sign your forms once per year and anytime you make an update.

A parent must create their FinalForms account first before your student is able to create their account. We ask ALL parents/guardians of athletes to use FinalForms.

In order to participate in Eckstein sports, Before Tryouts, FinalForms must be completed.

Final Forms Support

If you require any support during the process, scroll to the page bottom and click “Use Support”. Thank you for your assistance in streamlining processes, boosting compliance and increasing safety at Eckstein Middle School.


All students need a doctor-signed physical uploaded onto Final Forms before they can participate in sports.

Physicals are valid for two years from the exam date. Check with Toni Morgan to see if your student has a current physical on file at Eckstein. Both Roosevelt and Nathan Hale High schools have a Teen Health Clinic that can provide sports physicals for our students.

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
