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 2021-2022 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 are to turned into Mr. Evans, Athletic Director in Room 3-301.
  • 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.
