Multiple Teams · Fall Practices Begin


Parkway Family,

I hope you are safe and healthy.

Mark Uhyl, the Director of the MHSAA, has written a poignant blog about the return of sports. https://www.mhsaa.com/News/Blog-From-the-Director/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/9185/Back-to-School

The MHSAA is moving forward with a return to play plan for fall sports.  Moderate and high-risk sports such as football, girls volleyball and boys soccer may begin practice but not competition.  Decisions about competition timelines for these sports will be made by August 20th.

Reminders for Parkway Athletes:

Please register your athlete using the TeamSnap link.   https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/237491

For the 2020-2021 school year, the MHSAA pre-participation sports physical requirement will be waived for students in any grade who received a valid physical for sports during the 2019-2020 school year (one completed on or after April 15, 2019).  These students and their parents/guardians will be required to complete the MHSAA SPORTS HEALTH QUESTIONNAIRE found on MHSAA.com or  https://pceagles.com/2020/07/13/2020-21-sports-physicals-and-health-questionnaire/. This form must be signed by the student and parent/guardian and kept on file in the school.  Students who do not have a physical on file for the 2019-2020 season will need to turn in a valid physical to participate in the 2019-2020 season.

All practices will be OUTDOORS until instructed by the State of Michigan.

Every athlete needs to bring their own water bottle.

Students will scan a QR code when they arrive and answer four safety questions.

Students will have their temperature taken as soon as they arrive.
