DeSoto ISD With a current enrollment just over 9,400 students, DeSoto ISD is a small, suburban district 15 miles south of Dallas in north Texas. The 23-square-mile district serves students in DeSoto, Glenn Heights, and Ovilla with 12 campuses.
MISSION - We are committed to the academic and athletic success of our student-athletes!
All DeSoto ISD students interested in sports tryouts must have a completed UIL packet, including a completed physical, on file prior to the first practice.
Note: Physicals and concussion test MUST be completed and turned in prior to partivcipation, in order to allow the training staff adequate time to clear all student athletes to participate. If your athlete has NOT completed the U.I.L. Mandated Concussion Screening Test, they are NOT cleared to participate; therefore, they will NOT be allowed to tryout (Freshman, JV and Varsity). This will affect the athlete’s selection to a team! (The physical MUST be on a DeSoto ISD Physical Form.)
If your child is transferring in from another district, it is mandated by the UIL that he/she is cleared with Previous Athletic Participation Form clearance. You may find these forms online at desotoisd.org and then go to athletics or you may pick forms up in the athletic office as well.
