MARK YOUR SPORTS CALENDAR!
Cheerleading tryouts for next school year’s squads will be held the end of May. Students will need a PIAA physical or PIAA recertification form to tryout. Any 6th grade student interested in trying out must have a PIAA physical done for try outs.
Spring 2018-2019 sports physicals will be held Saturday, February 2, 2019 at Parkland High School.
Boys: 8 AM - 9:30 AM and Girls: 9:30 AM - 11 AM (free of charge)
No student can participate in a spring sport without a full PIAA physical. Recertification forms may be used for a spring sport if the athlete had a full physical for a fall or winter sport in 2018. The Parkland Athletic Department understands that it may not be convenient to come to our scheduled free physical event. However, those who miss must get a PIAA physical on their own prior to March 4, 2019. Paperwork for the PIAA physical can be found online at https://www.parklandsd.org/departments/athletics under Forms. All Parkland athletes must get an ImPACT test once during their four years at PHS and before participation.
The first day of spring sports is Monday, March 4.
Photos in the trophy case – the Parkland Athletic Department recognizes current NCAA Division I and II Parkland alumni by placing their signed photographs in the school cafeteria lobby trophy case. These pictures stay there until graduation from the students’ respective colleges and are then permanently displayed on the walls of our ticket sales area at PHS. If you are a current college athlete or have a child who meets the criteria for recognition, please send us an 8” x 10” autographed, glossy action photo from their college media guide or action shot from a game. The photo can be dropped off at PHS or mailed to:
