SPRING SPORTS PRACTICES
Welcome to the Spring!
Despite the influence of the recent storm, our spring sports program is energized and ready to begin practices on Monday, March 24th. All students must have a physical within the past calendar year, proof of insurance, have completed the emergency information forms, and signed the Athletic Code agreement before they will be allowed to begin practicing. Go Hilltoppers!

We would like to remind student athletes that you must have a current physical form on file in the Health/Nurses Office, signed by your physician. This signed form may be faxed to 802-748-7798, or mailed electronically to email@example.com. It is a requirement for all Academy students to have a physical examination by a licensed physician every 12 months. This must be obtained before the start of the season in order to be eligible to participate, even in a practice.

Work hard, prepare to be in great shape for the first day of practice, and commit to being a competitive and classy Hilltopper athlete!

Our interscholastic athletic program is an extension of our academic program; we view participation in interscholastic athletics as an honor and privilege and we demand commitment and a strong work ethic; therefore, our student athletes should expect that their involvement in athletics will be an intense educational experience. We recognize that excellence is not easily developed, but we believe that with encouragement, support, hard work, and motivation our student athletes will succeed, not only in competition, but also in life. All student athletes should recognize that involvement in interscholastic athletics, as in life, is a competitive atmosphere, where some excel, and all will benefit by being a member of a team. Student athletes should be able to say they are proud to be a part of St. Johnsbury Academy athletics.
