Posted of behalf of the Marple Newtown High School Director of Athletics, Dennis Reardon and Head Athletic Trainer, Sal Spitalieri:
Preseason begins on Monday, August 11th. In order to be eligible to participate on August 11th, student athletes must have submitted the REQUIRED athletic forms to the main office of the high school in advance. In addition, pre-season is mandatory for any player to be considered for a varsity sport upon the beginning of the season.
Also provided is a link about how to obtain physical exams locally for a small fee. Exams must have been signed by a doctor certifying a student’s health after June 1st, 2014.
We look forward to August 11th and seeing our athletic fields brimming with hard-working, dedicated student athletes. In today’s world, competition is a pivotal piece to the educational process and athletics play a part in that development. Please be sure to prepare and take care of all necessary paperwork in advance of the first day so you are able to compete at the highest level.
