Athletic Physicals

Horizon West Middle School

  • Each student that participates in athletics needs to have the OCPS SPORTS PHYSICALPACKET completely filled out by a parent/guardian and Doctor prior to try outsSchool Physicals are not the same as a sports physical and must be completed on the EL2 Form on page 6 of the packet. A sports physical is good for one calendar year from date of the physical. However, ALL students must have an updated 2022-2023 form completed.  Simply put "See last year's physical" on page 6 if applicable. A blank OCPS PHYSICAL PACKET can be picked up in the main office or downloaded below. All forms can be turned into the Front Office.  At that time, The Athletic Director will review the forms.  If any information was omitted, the parent will be contacted to complete the missing items BEFORE the student can participate.  Please DO NOT wait until the day of tryouts to turn in forms.  Incomplete forms may delay a student's tryout.
  • You must have a cumulative 2.0 grade point average from previous middle school years or previous semester whichever is greater.  Incoming 6th graders are already eligible for soccer and volleyball.
  • A student who reaches the age of 15 on or after September 1st will be ineligible for athletics at the middle school level.
  • There is only one girl’s team and one boy’s team for each sport:  Which means there will be a combination of 6th, 7th and 8th graders trying out for each team.  Both teams play on the same day, during the week at the same site.
  • Practices are usually every day and could be before or after school depending on the coach. 
  • There are no fees for being on the team.  However, if they do make the team, we do have the players purchase a team spirit shirt specific to that sport to wear on game day to school.
