Bowling Green Schools offer many activities in the fall for students’ grades 7 through 12, and if students want to get involved there is generally something for everyone.  The fall sports that we offer include football, volleyball, softball, band, poms, cross country, and cheerleading.

The high school season will officially begin on Aug. 12 and the middle school season usually starts on or after the first day of school.  There are a few items that students must complete if they want to participate on the first day of practice.

The first item that students must have is an updated physical.  The physical also must be turned into the head coach or the athletic department.   A student/athlete will not be allowed to practice if they do not have a physical turned into the athletic department.

The second item that all student/athletes must have completed is the insurance and MSHSAA (Missouri State High School Activities) form.   This form can be picked up at the high school office.  The form will ask for proof that the student/athlete has sufficient insurance coverage. The form also requires a signature for the athlete and parent on concussion information.

If you have questions regarding the start of the fall sports season, please don’t hesitate to call 324-5341.
