Steamboat Springs School let out at Steamboat Springs High School, and fall sports may be about the last thing on anyone's mind.
Still, in one of her last acts before retiring, Steamboat athletic secretary Kate Parke said anyone wanting to participate in school sports next fall needs to turn in the appropriate paperwork.
Athletes who plan to compete in next fall's sports - cross country, boys soccer, volleyball, golf, football, softball, boys tennis and cheerleading - need to get, fill out and turn in a packet of forms.
Included in the packet is an athletic registration form, an outline of student activity policies, a sports medicine medical history form and a physical form signed by a doctor. They must all be filled out and turned in along with the $150 sports participation fee and any extra dues associated with Tier 2 sports before an athlete can take part in any practices.
The golf team will start practice Aug. 10, just three days before it's first competition. The rest of the sports, meanwhile, will start practice Aug. 17.
Athletes can pick the packet of forms up at the high school or from their sports' coach. They can be dropped off at the high school until June 26, then again starting Aug. 3.
Residency ski program announced for Austria
Lowell Whiteman School and the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club have partnered together for a program that will allow local alpine skiing athletes to travel to Austria to focus on training this fall.
The program, which has seven spots, is open to students between eighth grade and their senior year in high school. It stretches from Oct. 1 to 29. It will feature academic support from Lowell Whiteman and coaching from the Winter Sports Club staff.
The camp costs $5,200 for current Winter Sports Club skiers and $5,800 for those not enrolled in the club.
Applications are due June 30. For more information, contact Rob Worrell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 878-0695.
